Loved this book!
5 stars By Andrea, Mar 20 2014
If you handed me another book by Carla Laureano I would ignore housework, emails and even social media, and start reading it immediately. Let me tell you why.

For a start, it's a contemporary romance, my favourite genre. Added to that, the main setting is in a unique part of the world and beautifully described. But it was the well-crafted characters that had me hooked. Of course, it was a bonus to find the female protagonist has the same name as me!

I think it's fair to say that Five Days in Skye is not your typical Christian romance - there's barely a church scene in sight - yet Andrea and James are most certainly on their journeys with God. As their romance grows, two damaged people reach out not only to each other but to God, and discover what the power of love can do. 

I'd never heard of a hospitality consultant, so Andrea's occupation intrigued me from the start. And who wouldn't fall in love with a hero who can cook, let alone a handsome celebrity chef? The secondary characters also captured my interest and it's through their interactions with James and Andrea, we learn of secrets and uncover the layers that make our hero and heroine authentic and heart-warming.

 I hope you will enjoy Five Days in Skye as much as I did.

A nice story
3 stars By Lynne Stringer, Mar 10 2014
I wish there was a half star option, because I would have like to give this book three and a half stars, because I felt it was just short of the four star mark.
It is an enjoyable romance and I liked both lead characters and felt they were well drawn, although I felt Andrea did protest too much about her feelings. I also thought the Christian content felt a little forced. It didn't always feel like it was a part of the story. Perhaps if more had been included it would have helped.
Nonetheless, it was a nice story!

Lovely. I'm still smiling.
5 stars By Iola, Aug 30 2013
I found all the characters to be intelligent and likeable, and I was especially impressed by the research. I've not been to Skye but I've lived in London and visited Scotland, and Five Days in Skye made me feel I was there. This is a Christian novel, but the Christian element is somewhat understated. Both Andrea and James come from rural backgrounds where the Christian faith was an integral part of the family. But both have abandoned that faith, yet realise on Skye that perhaps they need to pursue God once more. Five Days in Syke has it all: an excellent opening, a funny first meeting between Andrea and James, intelligent lead characters who are both successes in their chosen careers, excellent attention to detail, and the Isle of Skye, a beautiful and unique setting. And the last line is a beautiful illustration of the eternal romance between us and God. Recommended for romance lovers. Thanks to David C Cook and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.

Must read!!
5 stars By Audrey, Aug 11 2013
This was an absolutely amazing book. The characters of this book will stay with me for a long time. Right from the first page I was hooked.I actually caught myself wishing the book will not come to an end, because then I have to say goodbye to these lovely characters. But unfortunately even good books do come to an ending and what a beautiful ending... Love it!!
