What is this book about?
Andrea Sullivan is so consumed by her hospitality consultant job that she’s forgotten what brings her joy. She dreads her new assignment—a last chance to snag a high-profile client in Scotland. Yet the lush Isle of Skye transcends her preconceptions. As does the man she must impress, the rugged, blue-eyed Scotsman James MacDonald.
He’s passionate about cooking but after six restaurants, four cookbooks, and his own television show, he’s grown weary of the scrutiny that comes with living in the public eye.
Soon Andrea and James begin to sense these five days in Skye together may just be God’s wild invitation into deeper life … and truer love.
Something about this story gave me the nostalgic feel of the romances I used to enjoy when I was a young adult. There was a lot of chemistry between Andrea and James.
Andrea was a tough cookie from the start so I enjoyed watching James slip past her defenses and break down the walls she had built up around herself.
James was a man of deep convictions that were covered up by his playboy image. As he managed to get past Andrea’s defenses, she also did the same for him. She just wasn’t as intentional about it.
Five days is not much time for a forever kind of love story and I wondered how the author would handle it. I thought it was done very well. The only thing I wished for was visiting them after they had been together for some time to see their feelings grow. Perhaps that will happen in the subsequent books of this series.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
The nostalgic romance vibe.
What I didn’t like about this book:
Their story wasn’t over yet. I hope they show up in the other books.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes. Good character growth and sparkling attraction. I’m looking forward to seeing them again in the other books. This is the first book in the series.
Where can I learn more about this author and their books?
