Under Scottish Stars

About the Book

“Recently widowed Serena MacDonald Stewart focuses on her children to the exclusion of her career, her art, and her sanity. When her brothers ask her to oversee the family guest house on the Isle of Skye, it’s a chance to dust off her long-ignored business skills and make a new start. But her hopes for a smooth transition are dashed when the hotel manager, Malcolm Blake, turns out to be irritating, condescending . . . and incredibly attractive.

Malcolm Blake gave up everything—his home, his girlfriend, and his career—to return to Skye and raise his late sister’s teenage daughter. With few job opportunities available on the island, he signs on as the manager of the MacDonald family hotel, which he’s soon running successfully without interference from the owners. That is, until Serena shows up, challenging his authority and his conviction that there’s nothing missing from his new life on Skye.

Before long, Serena and Malcolm have to admit the spark between them is more than mere irritation. But as single parents, there’s more on the line than their own hearts. Will their commitment to family be the thing that draws them together or the only thing that could keep them apart?” (Amazon description)


My Thoughts

Ok well, just a warning, this book will take over your day, your night, your weekend! I started this book and proceeded to read it every chance I got til I finished it. Love this story and the entire series for that matter. The setting is so intriguing. The characters are ones I would like to know in life. I loved the build up and romantic tension leading up to the first kiss. It was well written. Tugged at my heartstrings! I would have loved some more internal context though. I felt like the characters could have been more complex and even more life like. I wanted to know more about both of the main characters past. It would have taken the story to the next level. I also felt like there were a few scenes that were maybe unnecessary filler. But I still loved the story and would love to read more about these characters and Scotland.
I received a copy of this book from netgalley. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
