Thrilled to be part of this blog tour today
13 January 2022
My thanks to Boldwood Books and Rachel's Random Resources for my copy of this book
and the invitation to the blog tour.
Whisked away to the beautiful island of Skye we catch up with some of the characters who featured in the previous book but especially get to know more about Caitlin Fraser, who runs the Glentorrin bakery, and her daughter Grace, with their adorable Yorkie Poo, Cleo. After many years of being a single mum, Caitlin decides its time for her to, tentatively, try out the complicated world of dating however, her forays into the singles market are fraught with uncertainty and not without drama.
Caitlin and Grace are both really lovely people, both strong and decisive and the lovely mother/daughter relationship they have only adds more warmth to this feel-good story. The perils and pitfalls of finding the right person are handled sensitively with just the right amount of humour, which made me smile, but underneath is a sensitive story about parenthood and what it means to develop a deep and meaningful friendship with the right person.
Wishing under an Island Skye is perfect escapism for these grey days of winter. It's beautifully written with a set of lovely characters who find their way into your heart, so much so I read the story in one sitting completely lost in the world which this author has created so lovingly.
Just to point out that whilst I hadn't read the previous book, Dreaming under an Island Skye, it didn't spoil my enjoyment, in fact, I've made a note to go back to the first book to learn more about the characters who make an appearance in this lovely story.
Best read with...one of Caitlin's famous tray bakes and a pot of tea.
