Five Days In Skye

Five Days In Skye by Carla Laureano

Description from the publisher:
"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."

I really enjoyed this book. I thought it was fun and entertaining. I realized half way through that I could not stop grinning as I read this book and that is always a good sign. I enjoyed watching the relationship between Andrea and James grow. 

To be real honest, parts we unrealistic and parts were very realistic. I found myself rolling my eyes that the relationship got to where it did in 5 days. I also thought that Andrea meeting his whole family so fast was unrealistic. If she was a true business woman, I could not picture her doing that. But alas, it was fun and enjoyable. 

I do have one complaint. I did not like the end. No wait, that is not how I mean that. I enjoyed the end alot BUT I felt like i was too quick. I wanted more. After reading 330 pages, I felt like the author realized how long the book was and thought "uh oh" and shoved the end into two pages.  It felt very rushed and messy and I would have liked to see it flow more like the rest of the book did.

As Andrea and James went through this book, they visited some places in Scottland. I though that was pretty cool. Now, to be real honest. I have no idea if those places are real or if all the facts were true but if so, that is really neat. If not, well then, I guess I did not learn anything. LOL. 

All in all, this was a good book, a wonderful romance that you can curl up and read anytime, day or night, during any weather (rainy is probably the best though, lol) and you will enjoy this light and fun read. 

***This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an open and honest review***
