Christmas on the Isle of Skye by Kirsty Ferry- Feature and Review


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?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Christmas on the Isle of Skye by Kirsty Ferry is a 2019 Choc Lit publication.

Some happy endings take longer than others- and some may need a little holiday magic…

Those following this series will remember Zac from Spring at Taigh Fallon.

What has Zac been up to? He’s one of the good guys, but he can be a little slow up on the uptake sometimes. Zac’s heart is settled on the Isle of Skye, but his lovely assistant, Ivy McFarlane, longs to spread her wings. Although he will miss her, Zac doesn’t want to hold her back. He just never realized he would miss her THIS much!!

Unfortunately, Ivy fervently hoped Zac would finally confess his feelings went beyond the professional realm. But he only wishes her well in her new adventures, so Ivy forges ahead to pursue her dreams. Now living in magical Glastonbury, Ivy’s career plans haven’t worked out the way she had hoped they would. She’s broke, frustrated, and most of all broken hearted.

But, when Zac Fallon shows up for an unexpected visit, Ivy is over the moon! However, a series of misunderstandings and preconceived notions threaten to prevent the pair from confessing their true feelings for each other. Will one of them speak up before it’s too late?

I loved this holiday themed story which incorporates a few magical elements and celebrations besides the traditional Christmas themes. The story is so sweet and tender, with each person discovering that no matter where they land, as long as they have each other, they will have happiness.

Overall, this is a delightfully warm, light, and whimsical holiday love story!
