Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano

Thursday, June 13, 2013

Hospitality consultant Andrea Sullivan has one last chance to snag a high-profile client or she'll have to kiss her dreams of promotion good-bye. When she's sent to meet Scottish celebrity chef James MacDonald on the Isle of Skye, she just wants to finish her work as efficiently as possible. Yet her client is not the opportunistic womanizer he portrays himself to be, and her attraction to him soon dredges up memories she'd rather leave buried. For James, renovating the family hotel is a fulfillment of his late father's dreams. When his hired consultant turns out to be beautiful, intelligent, and completely unimpressed by his public persona, he makes it his mission to win her over. He just never expects to fall under her spell.

Soon, both Andrea and James must face the reality that God may have a far different purpose for their lives—and that five days in Skye will forever change their outlook on life and love.

 About Carla Laureano:

Carla Laureano has held many job titles—professional marketer, small business consultant, and martial arts instructor—but writer is by far her favortie. She currently lives in Denver with her patient husband and two rambunctious sons, who know only that Mom's work involves lots of coffee and talking to imaginary people.

My Thoughts:

Andrea Sullivan is a closer. She is the best her company has, as a Hospitality Consultant. Her job is on the line. She has to close this deal and get home.
James or Jamie MacDonald is a Celebrity Chef with a cooking show, cook books, and numerous hotels in London. He has no idea that Andrea is coming and her arrival thanks to his younger brother Ian, knocks him off his feet in many ways.

In this debut novel by Carla, she has written believable characters that you fall in love with and cheer for. Five Days in Skye is a vacation to Scotland without the price of the ticket, I was breathless at the images of the Scottish highlands. The romance between James and Andrea is tender and endearing. The spiritual element is subtle but very powerful.

I stayed up very late reading this book, and I am so book drunk that picking up another book, and I have others to review, just doesn't seem possible. James and Andrea will stay with me for a long time.

If I had to choose who James and Ian looked like, I would say the Property Brothers from HGTV. Johnathon and Drew.

Carla is a new favored author and I do recommend this book! Grab a copy and take a great vacation to Skye, Scotland with Andrea.
