Title: Together Under a Snowy Skye
Author: Lisa Hobman
My Rating: 5 out of 5
After the heartbreak of a secret unrequited love, Millie Treadaway has finally found someone to spend her life with.
Harry Rose is handsome, successful and treats her like a princess. That is until Millie presents her fiancé with a surprise birthday gift, and their future is suddenly doomed.
Eight months later Millie returns to Glentorrin on the Isle of Skye for her best friend Jules’ Christmas wedding. Heartbroken, single, and heavily pregnant.
Staying in Lifeboat Cottage with Jules’ brother, kindhearted Dexter, she’s given up on love and resigned herself to being the best single Mum ever.
But a shock phone call from Harry leaves her reeling and doubting herself and her decisions.
Do second chances work? Or is Dexter, right? That she deserves much more?
Can the festive spirit in Glentorrin, and a little stray Jack Russell terrier, heal her heart?
Or is she fated to remain a member of the lonely-hearts club forever?
My Review of Together Under a Snowy Skye
I knew I was going to love this book – I was hooked from the very first page. The story follows the main character, Millie who upon discovering she is pregnant, decides to surprise her long-term partner Harry with the news on his 36th birthday. Millie is expecting him to be thrilled, as they had always talked about what their kids would be like in the future. However, Harry is anything but thrilled and gives Millie an ultimatum – him or the baby.
Fast-forward 8 months when a very heavily pregnant (and single Millie) heads back to Glentorrin, on the Isle of Skye for the wedding of her best friend, Jules. While she is in Scotland, Millie stays with Dexter (brother of Jules) who she has also been friends with for years – and may have also have had romantic feelings for as well.
As time progresses, Millie realises how much she is loving being surrounded by all her friends, and the thought of going home doesn’t make her happy – she realises just how much she will miss everyone, especially Dexter. Does she really have to go home, or could her heart find a way of staying in Scotland?
Together Under a Snowy Skye is beautifully written, with incredible and warming characters, and packed full of friendship, fun, love, and snow! A heartwarming must-read from me.
