Overview

Like There's No Tomorrow by Camille Eide

What if loving means letting go?

Scottish widower Ian MacLean is plagued by a mischievous grannie, bitter regrets, and an ache for something he'll never have again. His only hope for freedom is to bring his grannie's sister home from America. But first, he'll have to convince her young companion, Emily Chapman, to let the woman go.

Emily devotes herself to foster youth and her beloved Aunt Grace. Caring for others quiets a secret fear she keeps close to her heart. But when Ian appears, wanting to whisk Grace off to Scotland, everything Emily holds dear is at risk.

Live Each Day Like There's No Tomorrow: From the moment I started reading this charming book, I was captivated by the main caharcters. Emily was caring for her Aunt Gracein Portland, Oregon while Ian was caring for his Grandmother Maggie in Scotland. Their correspondence through letters between the sisters eventually leads to the meeting of Ian and Emily. The relationship between Ian and Emily grows and obstacles become apparent along the way that could hinder them from happiness. A well written book that captured my attention from beginning to end. I can't wait to read Camille Eide's next book.

Beautiful well written, inspiring story. This book had me hooked from the beginning and I hated to see it end. Two people who had never met but knew each other through letters that had written on behalf of relatives, meet for the first two and there is an instant connection. We are led on a journey from Central Oregon to Scotland. The dynamics of all characters in this book shine through the pages. There is funny moments, sad moments and moments that just leave you speechless. I hope that there is a sequel in the future.

Like There's No Tomorrow is that book - you know the one you buy, sigh with happiness as you read it - want a copy on your nightstand and on your nook. Author, Camille Eide, has proven she has the unique gift to pen a page-turner while keeping the story so real and relatable, the reader is able to pick up the book after stopping at any given page and drop right back into the world of Ian MacLean and Emily Chapman, two young caregivers of elderly, quirky sisters who live an ocean apart. Take a cue from the pages of the book, brew a cup of tea and curl up in your favorite chair to enjoy this lovely story. I'm looking forward to future books from this talented writer.

Two quirky old sisters, a devoted woman, and a good looking Scottish man. This was the making of a sweet story. Add a little romance into the mix and I enjoyed it. I particularly liked the way that this author dealt with the issue of forgiveness. It was this realism in the midst of the story that held my attention. (Full review at my website)

I giggled. (a lot) I cried. (a little) I swooned. (a little) … (yeah. ok. a lot) In short, I fell in love. With the book. With the characters. With the settings. And especially with the message of letting go – of fear, bitterness, and burdens we were never meant to carry. Let’s talk about the characters for a moment. We’ll get to Ian and Emily in a bit, but I absolutely have to focus on Maggie and Grace first. These two elderly Scottish sisters were a handful! And a hoot! They were the main source of my giggles throughout Like There’s No Tomorrow, and I confess that I wondered there for a while if Camille had based these riotous octogenarians on my grandmothers :) Between Grace’s precious confusion and Maggie’s rebellious determination to steal the keys and drive off into the sunset, there was never a dull moment on the page! And now for Ian. Oh girls! You will LOVE Ian! That is, as long as you go for the brooding, tender, passionate guys with a sense of humor. Who also happen to be SCOTTISH. That’s right – he comes with a brogue and a kilt and a nicely sculpted chest thanks to chopping wood. Swoon over that for a moment and then come back here so we can talk about what really matters. (No… not his kisses. Although those seemed quite delicious!) As yummy as all of that is, the thing I appreciated most about Ian is the change that goes on within his heart. Camille Eide does an exquisite job of capturing his completely-reasonable anger as well as the gradual healing that takes place over the course of the story. And watching that man fall in love was truly a pleasure. Which brings us to Emily. Because, you see, Like There’s No Tomorrow is so much more than a love story. I would almost say that the romance is only a small part in the overall story, but that’s not exactly true either. The romance becomes the backdrop onto which Camille Eide paints a beautiful landscape of truth and hope and most especially courage. Bottom Line: Camille Eide has a way with characters. They get into your heart and set up camp, and you are all the better for having spent time with them. She also has a great talent for creating a scene that appears one way at face value but in fact can be immensely symbolic as well. Like There’s No Tomorrow will linger with me for many reasons – the characters, the setting, the romance. But especially the message of courage – of living life in spite of your fears – and of cherishing each day as though it’s all we’re to be given. If you love to become emotionally invested in the books you read, I highly suggest you try one by Camille Eide! (I received a copy of this book in exchange for only my honest review.)

This is a heart-warming story with poignant themes of faith, forgiveness, and daring to love. The characters are multi-layered and engaging. The struggles, and joys, they face are portrayed in a realistic and interesting way. Camille Eide draws a picture of faith in God that is authentic and inviting. The romance is lovely to read - the kind that makes the reader's heart stir in anticipation as much as the characters. And her descriptions of the settings, especially Scotland, made me feel as if I were there. If you're looking for a light, enjoyable, entertaining read that may also give your spirit some food for contemplation, then give this one a try. I think you will not be disappointed.

I really enjoyed this book. It is a wonderfully written romance and had a story line that kept me engrossed in the lives of the characters from the first pages. It is the heartwarming story of family relationships and also of a couple learning to trust God in their relationship. This is the first book I have read by this author and I certainly hope there will be other books to follow.

What a wonderful tale of international love and true purity. I'm already looking forward to reading it all over again. This is the kind of book you curl up with and read all day long.
