About this deal

Instead the story revolves around the opening of ‘The Rock’, a hotel bequeathed to Finton MacKenzie by his deceased husband. Habe dieses Buch als NEU gekauft, vollen Preis bezahlt und es eben grade erhalten als wäre es von einem Laster gefallen. In ‘Het eilandhotel’ keer je terug naar Mure, het kleine eiland met zijn uitgestrekte strand, kleurrijke huisjes en inwoners, Flora’s café en het chique hotel op het noordelijkste puntje.

A coming of age tale for both teenage islander Isla and a playboy Norwegian prince, banished on a tiny Scottish islet until he can prove himself useful. While this book is part of a series, I had no trouble reading it as a standalone, and didn’t feel lost. And while I really liked the series in general, if another Mure Island book comes out, I would hesitate before reading it--I simply have no patience with the inconsistencies and changes--when you are writing a series of books that readers grow attached to, it makes zero sense to start changing names, etc. The residents of this gentle, close knit rural Scottish community, will provide you with some lovely escapism.I’ve read several - a friend remarked that I have quite a collection given that I’m not a huge fan of her writing. And then he reappears to somehow kiss the chef after a brief and inconsequential disagreement starting the second baseless romance of the novel.

It is still close enough to Christmas with a nip in the air, so I see no reason to stop reading Christmas stories, and this one was good fun and hit all the feels from the lows of grief and humiliation to the highs of a freshly acquired sense of purpose and pride as well as new and deepening love affairs. But Saif finds out that his wife, whom he must have lost upon fleeing the country, is alive and seemingly married to, can you believe it, a Daesh fighter. What I love about her books is the witty writing, the laugh out loud comedy, the heartwarming plots, and the cozy settings.There was no redeeming qualities in this novel and from start to finish the story was boring and bland. The settings make you want to move there (she even makes the tap water sound amazing) and the descriptions of baking and food have ruined my attempts to stick to my diet, goddammit! Er zijn een paar losse eindjes en sommige ontwikkelingen kun je wel voorspellen, maar er zijn voldoende verrassingen, je sluit de personages in je hart, je zou de kerst wel door willen brengen op Mure en bovenal is dit weer een warm, sfeervol en gezellig verhaal om heerlijke leesuren mee door te brengen! If you're looking for sweet, chatty, uplifting and absorbing reads you can't go wrong with Jenny Colgan. You can imagine what must be done to open a hotel and restaurant several months before Christmas, no?
