Under Scottish Stars by Carla Laureano



Recently widowed Serena MacDonald Stewart focuses solely on her children—to the exclusion of career, artistic pursuits, and her sanity. When her brothers ask her to use her long-ignored business skills to oversee the family guest house on the Isle of Skye, she thinks it might be a chance for a new start. But her hopes for a smooth transition are dashed when, the current hotel manager, Malcolm Blake, turns out to be irritating, condescending ... and incredibly attractive.


Well, since everyone has pretty much read my thoughts on this book and I agree with ya'll this book was a delight to read! However; I didn't know that it took four long years to wait for it but, since it did it was well worth the read!
I loved the scenery and the way that Laureano wrote, I felt like I was there with the MacDonald family and I loved every minute of it! I didn't want to leave Scotland.
Faith is easy to accept and yes it's very hard to hold on to. Even I have trouble with that. I wonder if God understands that I try so hard sometimes and other times I fail so miserably. I think each of us is that way,
I appreciate that Laureano shows imperfect characters and offers hope in such a way that it's realistic and believable.
A wonderful story and one I enjoyed very much.
I appreciated the fact that I didn't have to read the first books in this series to know what was going on.
I highly recommend this book. I love this author's writing style very much.
My thanks to Netgalley and Tyndale for letting me read and review this beautiful story. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
