#Review | Christmas on the Isle of Skye (Tempest Sisters #4) by Kirsty Ferry #ChristmasOnTheIsleOfSkye @kirsty_ferry @Choclituk
Hello Sunshines, I have the huge pleasure to be sharing my review of the heart-warming; Christmas on the Isle of Skye by Kirsty Ferry, I have to say it is utterly charming, so settle in with your hot chocolate and enjoy!
How far would you go to be with the one you love at Christmas?
The Isle of Skye is a magical place, especially at Christmas, and there’s no place Zac Fallon would rather be. But whilst Zac has everything he needs on Skye, there’s still something missing – and that something is a somebody called Ivy McFarlane.
Ivy used to work with Zac but then spread her wings and moved to Glastonbury. He’s missed her ever since. Now it’s almost Christmas and Zac realises that the Ivy shaped hole in his life is too big to bear. So starts his festive mission to the mainland – but will he back in time to spend Christmas in Skye? And, more importantly, will Ivy be with him?
Oooh, I do love a festive romance and this is going straight on my favourite’s-to-be-re-read-again; list. Kirsty Ferry is fast becoming my go-to author fun, witty and feel-good romances, this has to be my favourite yet.
Don’t you just love a ‘will-they-won’t they’ romance? You are willing the couple on, at the time you want to bang their heads together and shout at them for being idiots and actually look at what’s in front of them, I love going through those emotions as we follow two people who we know are made for each other, basically foul everything up. This is no different, this is a fabulous festive romance, which will make you feel all cosy and make you want to set off and spend Christmas on the Isle of Skye – honestly, I have fallen in love with this place – and it’s hero 😉
This is the fourth book in the Tempest Sisters series, I have only read the previous; Jess’s Little Bookshop By The Sea which I had read as a stand-alone and the same can be said about this one, everything that you need to know from the previous books is in the story, so I didn’t feel like I was missing out on anything by not having read the whole series, but I will be though as now I really want to read Angel’s and Rosa’s stories. Even though this is apart of the ‘Tempest Sister’s’ series, it is actually the story of the sister’s friend; Zac.
Oh, my word, how much do I love an emotionally uncomfortable bloke, think Charles out of Four Wedding and a Funeral add a Scottish accent and you will have an idea about our adorable Zac – he is way too cute for his own good.
Zac and Ivy have been secretly in love with each other for years, honestly, the moment you meet them on that first page where Ivy is leaving Skye to go to the mainland, you just know that they are supposed to be together. From that moment when Zac can’t say the words she wants to hear, the words that may stop her from leaving, you know that these two are going to make you go through it, you will want to sit them down have a very stern word with them and tell them to flaming well get on with it as well as sighing at just how cute Zac is – bless him he is so adorably uncomfortable at expressing himself, I fell in love with him right there.
Ivy used to work in Zac’s little tea room on Skye, but she needs to spread her wings and follow her dream, she wants to grow and prove she can make it in the real world with her little jewellery making business, but she deeply wants Zac, she hungers for him every day and missies him, she wished he would have gone with her but she knows that his heart will always be o Skye – which we can’t really blame him for, it really is the most beautiful place. But our lovely Zac misses her just as much and decides to actually go and visit her in Glastonbury, I know he actually steps off his little Scottish paradise to visit the mainland.
So we now have our two young lovers in the same place, but if you think; yes, Zac is going to pluck up the courage and say what he feels for her, well you’d be a wee bit wrong as his trip doesn’t exactly go to plan and they fall into the uncomfortable realm of missed opportunities with a side trip through misunderstanding valley. Really we go through the entire story with both of them admitting to themselves how much they love the other and neither actually saying it to the person who matters, will they ever say those three little words to each other? That is the question we all want to know isn’t it, even I had my doubts, but I won’t tell you what happens’ you’re going to have to read it for yourself.
I was completely charmed by this wonderfully heart-warming, festive romance, highly recommended – even if you read it just for the enchanting Isle of Skye atmosphere 😉
