Summary

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?

Love under Skye

A lovely, wonderful, uplifting story as ever narrated beautifully by Eilidh Beaton. Warms one’s soul at how kind and caring humans can be-while also showing a little of the darker side too. It allows you to effortlessly fall into a completely different world with the only problem being you actually want to meet the characters not just have them in your mind.

Likable characters and more sad/drama than hoped

Narration quality was good, but for a book with most characters being Scottish, it would have been nice to have a correct accent. This story does deliver a happy ending, at the b
very end. the people are all likable but this was really more a story about people working through problems than I was looking for in what appeared to be a very light hearted story. Wanted to love it, but just didn't.
