  • Romance Under the Scottish Stars!

    No Spoilers! Och, how I enjoyed my visit to the island of Skye—with its small town ambience, tiny whitewashed, stone croft houses, and the mysterious cover of fog hovering over the slim white lighthouse! And oh, the romance of stargazing in Kinloch Forest with that special someone...thus the title Under Scottish Stars. If you don't love kissing scenes then best pass this novel on by, because there's plenty of passionate sparks between Serena MacDonald Stewart and Malcolm Blake! Malcolm—what a braw, perfect hero—hardworking and devoted to raising his teenage niece. At first I didn't like him at all and with his flirtatious innuendos, I simply thought of him as a polished player. Talented and lovely Serena Stewart, a widow raising two children, isn't ready for a relationship and has many trust issues as far as men go. More than just a tale of burgeoning love, Ms. Laureano tackles the challenges of single parenthood in a story about change & the fear of losing control that comes with it. I could actually hear the characters speaking with a Scottish burr and thoroughly enjoyed how the author interspersed words such as rucksack, bloke, porridge (who ate that besides Goldilocks and the Three Bears?), knackered, brioche, and duvet. I love a book that teaches me something! “Serena Marie, you need to stop blaming God for all the heartache in your life. Until you do, you will never hear His voice over the sound of your own hurt.” Advice many of us need to heed! *I received a complimentary copy of this novel through Tyndale House via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are entirely my own.*

  • A fabulous conclusion

    I thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the MacDonald Family trilogy by Carla Laureano and waited several years for “Under Scottish Stars” to be published. I’ll admit, I was put off by the back cover copy, a widow and an orphan don’t make for easy reading usually. Whilst Carla doesn’t avoid the pain of loss and it’s ramifications, don’t be concerned, this book has plenty of light-hearted moments and sufficient time has passed for the characters that the grief is no longer where they are dwelling. Serena is intelligent and sassy, I took to her from the outset. A caring mom and niece, she is welcomed back into her home community on Skye. Malcolm is the manager of the hotel owned by Serene and her family. The two go toe to toe as they find their new roles as she becomes more active in the business. Malcolm is a little rough around the edges but all heart and the two have great fun getting to know each other better whilst juggling three kids and a growing business. I particularly enjoyed the fabulous dialogue in this one, not just of the lead characters but everyone! The interactions are heartfelt and often humourous. When dealing with tough topics, Carla does a beautiful job of capturing the emotions. The plot may not be surprising but I found the journey refreshing and hope-filled! If you enjoy a good romance, this is one for you but don’t miss out on the first two – equally good! It’s a five out of five on the enJOYment scale and highly recommended!
