About this deal

Er is dus genoeg te beleven, maar alle verhaallijnen zijn prima te onderscheiden en samen vormen ze een mooi geheel. 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. There are a lot of characters to keep track of so it was not only hard to keep track of them, they aren’t very likable.

The blurb on the back of my copy implied that they would be the central characters of the story, however it turns out that we are mainly going to hear about Isla, your typical milquetoast shy white girl who falls in love with not-so-subtle down on his luck Norwegian Prince Konstantin, sent to the hotel as a kitchen boy to get some perspective in his privileged life. Suffice to say I am not the target audience, and I won't be reading any of the other books in the series. 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. It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis is to plant trees.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 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!

Maybe she is a bit jealous, but she is also amazed that Joel went from a high-powered, international lawyer, to a Daddy! 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. 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. We are constantly expanding our range of books, social stationery and calendars, with all the leading publishers and suppliers.

If you're looking for sweet, chatty, uplifting and absorbing reads you can't go wrong with Jenny Colgan. This one was just as sweet and delicious to read, snuggled under a blanket on a very cold and rainy afternoon.

macht den Eindruck, dass das Buch schnell geschrieben wurde, um das derzeitige Interesse an der Serie auszuschöpfen.

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. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Jenny Colgan is the author of numerous Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling novels and has won various awards for her writing, including the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance, the RNA Romantic Novel of the Year Award and the RNA Romantic Comedy Novel of the Year Award. 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.
