After three wonderful years of marriage, librarian Juliette Fairhurst’s heart is shattered when her husband, Laurie, is taken from her much too soon.

Devasted, Juliette decides to take a sabbatical and reconnect with her mother’s birthplace, the village of Glentorrin on the picturesque Isle of Skye.

Welcomed by most of the villagers, Juliette throws herself into an idyllic community life, taking on the role of temporary summer guardian at The Lifeboat House Museum; a role that offers her the perfect escape from the tragedy of her real life.

During her time on the island, Juliette clashes with brooding single dad and artist, Reid Mackinnon and is befriended by his son Evin and dog Chewie. It’s clear that divorced Reid is struggling and scarred by his own painful experiences.

Can these two lost souls find a lifeline to rescue each other?

Or will their pasts scupper their second chance at real happiness?


Lisa Hobman:

After a varied career including professional singing and work in education Lisa decided it was time for a drastic change.

So, in 2012, Lisa relocated her family including their two dogs from Yorkshire to a stunning village in the Scottish Borders.

Having a well routed passion for all things Scottish, Lisa’s writing career was sparked and inspired by her new location in the beautiful country she now calls home.

Her romantic and uplifting stories feature places she has visited along with realistic, loveable Scottish characters she’s created.

Lisa had the honour of being shortlisted in the Romantic Novelists Association RONAs in 2014 with her debut novel.

Lisa will continue to write about the locations she adores in the hope of bringing a little Scottish love to her readers.
