About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Right from the very start of the book, I was scratching my head trying to figure out who the Bookers were. I was seriously ready to pack my bags and head to this small Scottish island, but then I remembered how cold it was.

I just can't imagine what the point of them was--all it served to do for me was completely distract me from enjoying the story. Siblings Fintan and Flora are trying to get the hotel ready for opening at Christmas, while Fintan battles grief and Flora adapts to the new world of motherhood. I don’t like the assumption that people are going to leap into bed at the first hint of attraction - it’s not something I’ve been aware of in any of my circles of friends and acquaintances, and there seems to be rather a lot of it in this book, albeit (thankfully) without any intimate details.It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis is to plant trees. They hadn’t had quite such an entertaining evening since Wullie Stevenson had gotten his false teeth stuck bobbing for apples at Halloween and scared the living death out of all the children by taking them out, apple and all.

With Flora's help, Fintan is going to get the hotel up and running in time for Christmas, transforming it into a festive haven of crackling log fires and delicious food. Je volgt niet alleen de vertrouwde personages, ook worden er nieuwe karakters geïntroduceerd die voor heel wat leven in de brouwerij zorgen. Na alle gebeurtenissen in de vorige boeken was ik erg benieuwd naar de ontwikkelingen in de levens van alle geliefde personages en samen met een vriendin las ik dit boek in één dag uit. having not read the previous books I was a little concerned at first, but I was not confused or lost at any time during the story.Maybe she is a bit jealous, but she is also amazed that Joel went from a high-powered, international lawyer, to a Daddy! 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. Joel is equally amazed but just cannot believe the gifts he has been given at this stage in his life. 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.

I felt the need to review because I was so wrong about this book, and hope others will give it a chance too! 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. The Rock – the rambling, disused hotel on the tip of the island – was Colton's passion project before he died. Die Story war ganz nett, was mich aber massiv gestört hat, war, dass die Autorin sich offenbar nicht mehr an die Namen ihrer Charaktere erinnern konnte. Oh yes, no he makes a brief appearance when he hires cliché French maverick chef Gaspard in Glasgow, commenting on how he had fancied the men in glasgow when coming here as a teenager.So hieß "Jan" , Frau von Charlie, in diesem Buch "Pam", Joel hieß bisher "Binder" mit Nachnahmen und nun plötzlich "Booker" und andere Kleinigkeiten. Constantine is a bit of a mystery (The reader is privy to his backstory but no one in town knows his truth). Also Agot, the young girl who keeps popping up in people's plot lines, is one of the moist ghastly spoiled brats I have ever read.
