Product Description

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.

Author Bio

Carla Laureano has held many job titles—professional marketer, small business consultant, and martial arts instructor—but writer is by far her favorite. 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.

Editorial Reviews

"...sweet and scathing, lush and intimate.... This story has guts and heart as well as the depth and heat necessary to satisfy any romance reader's palate."



"From page one, Five Days in Skye captured my imagination and every minute of my pleasure reading time. With enviable finesse, Carla Laureano weaves romance, hope, healing, and faith into a spunky and sparking tale that made me sorry to say good-bye to the characters and the alluring Isle of Skye. I look forward to reading more from this author."


"After reading Five Days in Skye, I wanted to pack my bags and catch the first flight to Scotland and discover Skye for myself. In her debut novel, Carla Laureano brought Skye alive with vivid detail, drew me into the main character's budding romance, and kept me turning the pages late into the night. I'm looking forward to more books from Carla!"



"Five Days in Skye swept me away to Scotland! Against the craggy beauty of the Isle of Skye, author Caral Laureano weaves a story of love between an American businesswoman and a Scottish celebrity chef. Fans of the movie The Holiday are sure to enjoy this contemporary romance. Laureano's voice is deft, seamless, and wonderfully accomplished. An exciting newcomer to the world of Christan fiction!"

    I just finished reading Five Days in Skye and I was drawn into the story completely. The characters were real, breathing, flawed but loving individuals. The settings were described with a deft and engaging hand (I have to go to Scotland now!) and the story arc had me burning through pages until I reached 'The End' then promptly launched into London Tides. I can't wait for book 3 in this series. Carla Laureano has launched to the top of a very short 'must buy immediately' list of authors for me.

    Five Days in Skye by Carla Yvonne Laureano

    Hi Everyone,

    I could not get the book cover to download. So the review is without a cover of the book. Sorry.

    Contemporary Romance

    This is a romance set in beautiful Scotland. Andrea Sullivan is a professional hospitality consultant; she is good at her job but on her last consultation she rebuffed a clients advances. Andrea feels she is being punished when her boss sends her to Scotland and international acclaimed Chef James MacDonald on a consulting job. Andrea is obsessed with her job and redeeming herself after the last fiasco. Both characters are strong independent career minded people. Andrea keeps seeing James as a man with ulterior motives. All James wants is to open a hotel in Scotland that he did not get to open with his father before he passed and to become close to Andrea. The book begins with a funny meeting between Andrea and James, that just made me howl. What follows is a ramp thru beautiful Scotland. The authors descriptions of Scotland were so vivid I could see each scene she described. Scotland would be the one place in the world I would love to visit and her descriptions just fueled that desire even more. Ms. Laureano created two main characters that have to learn to trust, forgive old hurts, heal old wounds, and love again not only within themselves and each other, but in their relationship with God. Faith is an interwoven theme in the book. Ms. Laureano did a great job pacing the book, backgrounds, and faith thru the story and the book does not feel preachy or stiff. Follow James and Andrea as they fall in love; Andrea falls for Scotland and James, and finds her love of God. Andrea reckoning with God was heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time. A truly good love story between Andrea, James and God.

    I would recommend highly recommend this book.

    I received this book from the publishers and Netgalley for an honest review.

    This review was written for #1: Five Days in Skye.
    Hopelessly romantic! "Five Days in Skye" was mesmerizing; engaging, entangling, enthralling; weaving a love between two broken individuals who struggled valiantly to shed their past, while courageously tip toeing towards their future. Incredibly, this love story was conceived and delivered within five days; five days in possibly one of the most beautiful places on the face of the earth; the Isle of Skye. What were the chances that it could survive?

    Andrea Sullivan, hospitality consultant, is pursuing a signed contract. James MacDonald, world-renowned chef and restaurateur, is innocently flirting with a beautiful woman. When the two travel to Scotland's island of paradise to review the renovation of a MacDonald family property, Andrea's New York City lifestyle comes to a screeching halt. James is quite outspoken about the fact that he can persuade Andrea to fall in love with the lush countryside, the magnificent sunrises, the succulent menus, and the majestic castles, but something much deeper innocently transpires. Lovely, witty, and tear filled conversations comprise the brilliance of this story; the characters have time to become known, all their flaws, all their pain, all their dreams; all come crashing together upon the shores of a love that has the potential to become forever.

    Carla Laureano has proven herself to be a writer of significance with just one story, "Five Days in Skye"!

    Five Days in Skye is an intense, contemporary romance that will keep you turning pages as you become immersed in this exciting story of love, forgiveness, and redemption. I love this novel.

    The main characters, Andrea and James, are so well developed, I feel as if they are people I know. The setting of the story is vividly described, and I feel like Ive missed something by not visiting there.

    The spiritual thread is naturally woven into the story and adds to its depth. I always enjoy a novel that makes me think, and this one does that well.

    Although the story has a very satisfying ending, I did hate to see it end. I will remember Andrea and James story for quite some time.

    James MacDonald is a successful chef, TV show star and author of cook books. He has a different woman on his arm every time he socializes. He appears to be a love em and leave em type of guy and not to be interested in any kind of serious relationship. However, what the majority of people dont see is his foundation set up to help at risk young men learn a way to make an honest living, his love of his family and he doesnt take any of the young women he dates to his home at the end of the night. He has a zest for life, but when he meets Andrea he realizes his life has been missing something.

    Andrea Sullivan is a hospitality consultant and the top money earner for her company. She handles all the tough deals, so why is she brought in to seal the deal with a British celebrity chef on a sub-par deal? She knows she is being punished for her actions during the last deal. She has been promised the position of vice-president if she can bring this deal to a close. She has been promised this before, but what is she supposed to do? She cant let eight years of working seven days a week go down the drain, so off to Scotland she goes. Once there, her host persuades her to stay a few extra days to enjoy Skye and take a time off from work. She soon falls in love with Skye and her host. Is she ready to make a commitment to a celebrity when she shuns the spotlight? As she lives in New York and James mostly lives in London and they both travel a lot is a relationship even possibl
