Dreaming under an Island Skye by Lisa Hobman


Is there really such a thing as a second shot at true love?

After three wonderful years of marriage, librarian Juliette Fairhurst’s heart is shattered when her husband, Laurie, is taken from her much too soon.

Devasted, Juliette decides to take a sabbatical and reconnect with her mother’s birthplace, the village of Glentorrin on the picturesque Isle of Skye.

Welcomed by most of the villagers, Juliette throws herself into an idyllic community life, taking on the role of temporary summer guardian at The Lifeboat House Museum; a role that offers her the perfect escape from the tragedy of her real life.

During her time on the island, Juliette clashes with brooding single dad and artist, Reid Mackinnon and is befriended by his son Evin and dog Chewie. It’s clear that divorced Reid is struggling and scarred by his own painful experiences.

Can these two lost souls find a lifeline to rescue each other?

What an emotional ride this story was. As I turned the pages, the more on the edge of my seat I was.

There are some fairly hefty issues inside that glorious cover, but they are dealt with in a sympathetic and realistic manner. And the romance was a slow burning cracker, that kept me on my toes.

The sense of community in the story was one of the lovely things about it (along with a lot of other lovely things!), and I've now added Skye to the list of places I need to visit.
