Dreaming Under An Island Skye
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?
Or will their pasts scupper their second chance at real happiness?

I’m finally back with a book review. Today, I will be talking about ‘Dreaming Under An Isle Skye’ by Lisa Hobman, a romance fiction set on an beautiful island.
When Rachel messaged me and asked me would I be interested to review the book, I accepted it whole heartedly. What is there not to enjoy; romance on an island? Sign me up at any moment. I love when the book is set on an island.
This was my first time to read something from the author and I’m glad that I gave this book a chance. In this book we are following Juliette, a widow who lost her husband to a sickness and she finally takes some time for herself. She sets of to an island Skye and is mostly welcomed by majority of people. Living on an island is very different than living in Cotswold where she is from but that doesn’t mean that it is all bad. She finds a place to work at, finds amazing friends and even a handsome guy.
What I loved about this book is that it showed me that even if we went through the pain, there is still hope and we shouldn’t give up on love so easily. Juliette is a perfect example of character that grew through the book, even if there were moments where I was a bit annoyed by her. Same goes for Reid. They both grew and they both showed us that we shouldn’t give up hope. At moments, this was really a hard read and I shared a tear or two but the author made suire to keep it uplifting.
If you are on the lookout for the book that will show you how you can mend your heart, please pick up this book. I’m sure that it will be worth it. We can find love at the places we don’t expect it and this book will show us. Thanks to Rachel for inviting me to do a tour.
Love & light,
