Publisher's Description

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.

    Having heard such rave reviews of Five Days in Skye by Carla Laureano from fellow bloggers, I had to see what the hype is.

    I was emotionally swept away to the Scottish Highlands. The vivid scenery as described in Carla's prose had me hooked onto the setting. Her characters, from James (we'll get back to him), Andrea, Ian, Serena and Muriel felt close and endearing. James and Andrea had different ideas to what their dreams were, while their spiritual and emotional chords are both wounded and doubtful at times. As they approach their lives and their dreams, their journey to healing their hearts may very well bring them more than what they expect. I love the theme of restoration, not only the physical aspect of the hotel, but their spirits as well. That parallel won't be lost on readers, and the message of the kind of brokenness only God can heal.

    Now onto James. Charming is an understatement. That man is oozing with charisma, roguish smirks and a handsome face. And lets not forget a man that can cite some pretty classic Cary Grant movies knows romance. *sigh. Andrea is smart, sassy and uptight, but in a way I relate and love. I love the flaws of these characters, and by the end of the novel, we truly see their development individually and collectively. The funny moments will have you laugh out loud, the tender moments, a sigh escapes before you knew, and the moments you find yourself in awe with the wisdom exhibited, you are stunned silent. Five days, it may seem short, but it's written so richly and insightful, I came away for the better. And I think you will too.

    Were all broken. Were only human. Some wounds only God can mend. (267)

    So let Him.

    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.

    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.
