New Cover!

In her amazing contemporary, Five Days in Skye, Carla not only displays her talent as a writer, but pulls together two remarkable characters with the tight threads of a beautiful romance. Andrea Sullivan is broken and tries to find her savior in her work as a hospitality consultant. When a rash decision leaves her trying to salvage her job by taking the renown celebrity chef James MacDonald on as a new client, she’s determined to suffer through five days in the cold land of Skye and seal the deal.

Despite her preconceived notions, James’s genuine charm, humor, and tenderness awaken her heart to the terrifying realization…she wants to love again. But love can’t bloom in five days, can it?

Especially between two opposites…

Let me just say that Carla’s writing is intense, clean, with powerful forward momentum. Jamie MacDonald is a hero-extraordinaire 🙂 I don’t know how she could top him. Andrea’s struggle is beautifully woven through the choices she makes and the constant battle of her heart for hope, with a lovely element of faith, gently piecing so many broken threads back together.

I loved it! And am going to have to find more of her books to read – whatever the genre 🙂

If you are interested in a book with fabulous dialogue, excellent scenery, a dashing hero, and a powerful spine of hope – this one is for you!

About the Book

Five Days - Original

Original Cover

Winner of the 2014 RWA RITA Award for Inspirational Romance!

Andrea Sullivan is so consumed by her hospitality consultant job that she’s forgotten what brings her joy. She dreads her new assignment–a last chance to snag a high-profile client in Scotland. Yet the lush Isle of Skye transcends her preconceptions. As does the man she must impress–the rugged, blue-eyed Scotsman James MacDonald.

He’s passionate about cooking, but after six restaurants, four cookbooks, and his own television show, he’s grown weary of the scrutiny that comes with living in the public eye.

Soon Andrea and James begin to sense these five days together may just be God’s wild invitation into deeper life…and truer love.

Author’s Note: The MacDonald Family Series was purchased by Tyndale House Publishers in early 2016. Paperback copies of the first edition are still available at some retailers. The e-book version with the new cover will be available beginning June 3, 2018, with a paperback reissue coming in 2019.
