Summary
Alex Hyde is the leaders' leader. An executive coach par excellence, she's the person the Great and the Good turn to when the pressure gets too much; she can change the way they think, how they operate, she can turn around the very fortunes of their companies. Her waiting list is months' long, but even she can't turn down the unorthodox but highly lucrative crisis call that comes her way a few weeks before Christmas, regarding the troublesome, and troubled, head of an esteemed whisky company in Scotland: Lochlan Farquhar, CEO of Kentallen Distilleries, is a maverick, an enigma and a renegade, and Alex needs to get inside his head before he brings the company to its knees. It should be business as usual. She can do this in her sleep. Only, when she gets to the remote island of Islay, with the winter snows falling, Alex finds herself out of her comfort zone. For once, she's not in control, Lochlan, though darkly charismatic, is unpredictable and destructive, her usual methods gaining no traction with him - and with Christmas and her deadline fast approaching, she must win his trust and find a way to close on this deal
Summary
They say that behind every great man, there’s a great woman, and behind London’s most powerful leaders, there stands only one - Alex Hyde, Business Coach par excellence. She’s the woman they turn to for advice and strategy when the pressure gets too much, her number on speed dial, her mantras in their heads. She can change the way they think, how they operate, she can turn around the very fortunes of their companies. So when she gets a call asking for her services, offering an unbelievable sum to discreetly manage a family member from the board of an esteemed whisky company in Scotland, it’s business as usual. She can do this in her sleep. Only, she’s never met anyone like Lochlan Burr before. CEO of Kentallen Distilleries, he’s also the son and heir of the company’s founder, a boy reared to greatness, a man for whom there is no 'no’. He’s a maverick, an enigma, a renegade, and Alex needs to get inside his head before he brings the company to its knees
