Description

Although he’s initially resentful, the place grows on him; he has never met anyone quite like Isla and her fellow Murians before.

The Rock – the rambling, disused hotel on the tip of the island – was Colton's passion project before he died. This was everything I wanted and expected from a Jenny Colgan book, and as a result it was the perfect sort of a read for me. The residents of this gentle, close knit rural Scottish community, will provide you with some lovely escapism. This book piqued my interest because I was in immediate need of a happy read, (and I mean now), that could lift me from my reality, (pandemic cabin fever), and take me anywhere else to lift my mood.Flora is out of sorts because she is supposed to be on maternity leave and can't seem to tear herself away from the hotel, and Fintan is still mourning and really doesn't know how to move forward. There are a plethora of characters and relationships that have been developed over the past three books, and starting here would be like joining a family reunion where everyone knows each other except for you. Door de beeldende schrijfstijl waan je je volledig op het eiland, voel je je onderdeel van de gemeenschap en is tussendoor stoppen met lezen vrijwel geen optie. All that’s left to do is hire a chef and kitchen staff to bring his late husband, Colton’s dream to life.

It did start off really slow and I was overwhelmed by the overload of characters and trying to keep them all straight, but each of their individual stories was heartwarming. Flora is determined to have everything up and running for Christmas, in hope of the festive atmosphere bringing a smile back to her brother’s face, a smile that she hasn’t seen since Colton died. Flora feels guilty leaving baby Douglas with Joel, his father, who is totally enamored with his baby son. Konstantin has been sent to learn what it is to work hard for a living, before receiving his inheritance. Also, one of the storylines has seemed off since Colgan first introduced it in an earlier book - maybe it’s because I don’t think it’s a story she should be telling.Daarnaast leef je mee met juf Lorna en huisarts Saif, die nog steeds wacht op nieuws over zijn vrouw, erger je je aan een momzilla op het eiland, moet je lachen om de grote persoonlijkheid van Flora’s nichtje Agot en pakt een viral video niet helemaal uit zoals die bedoeld was. Their romance has the depth of a dinnerplate, and they fall in love in the space of 5 weeks, knowing nothing about each. De schreeuwende Franse chef-kok Gaspard en de Noorse keukenhulp Konstantin, die nog nooit voor zichzelf hoefde te zorgen, worden goed uitgewerkt, hun verhaallijnen zorgen voor verbazing, humor en ontroering en ze groeien in het verhaal.

Fishing boats leave the small harbor regularly unless the winds reach gale force, or the ice seizes everything.I love Jenny Colgan's Mure series, and it was a pleasure to be back amongst the MacKenzie family once more.

Even the younger characters, whilst using messaging services, seem to b e blissfully unaware of the internet. There was no redeeming qualities in this novel and from start to finish the story was boring and bland.

But running a hotel is far from easy, especially with the staff consists of a temperamental perfectionist of a chef, a kitchen boy who doesn’t know how to pee a potato and a shy kitchen assistant who can’t stop herself from blushing whenever anyone tries to so much as talk to her.
