In all honesty, part of my disappointment was due to my own stupidity: I picked this book up randomly and not knowing that it was the fourth book in a series. On the tiny, beautiful, and remote island of Mure, halfway between Scotland and Norway, a new hotel opening is a big event.

It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis is to plant trees. While this book is part of a series, I had no trouble reading it as a standalone, and didn’t feel lost. So hieß "Jan" , Frau von Charlie, in diesem Buch "Pam", Joel hieß bisher "Binder" mit Nachnahmen und nun plötzlich "Booker" und andere Kleinigkeiten. The characters were not particularly memorable, but there were some quite interesting subplots and I was intrigued to know how it would continue.What on earth moved Colgan to incorporate the highly sensitive topic of refugees and their relationships in a way that felt deeply insensitive and superficial? The Rock – the rambling, disused hotel on the tip of the island – was Colton's passion project before he died. 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. 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.

Er is dus genoeg te beleven, maar alle verhaallijnen zijn prima te onderscheiden en samen vormen ze een mooi geheel. 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. The story didn't give me any of the cozy feelings of a small town nor did it give me the warm feelings of Christmas or the holidays in which I was hoping for. There was no redeeming qualities in this novel and from start to finish the story was boring and bland.Okay, Mure doesn’t exist, but it is a mix of the beauty and loneliness and friendship to be found in the northernmost parts of Scotland. I really enjoyed both getting to know the new characters, the disastrous early services in the restaurant, as well as catching up with all the regulars from previous books. A lovely, warm-hearted Christmas tale about a family and extended family on the tiny island of Mure. 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. First off I must admit, I am new to Jenny Colgan, and I have not read any of the other books in the Island series, so this is my first introduction to the Island of Mure and it's cast of off putting inhabitants.

Constantine is a bit of a mystery (The reader is privy to his backstory but no one in town knows his truth). Agot, as ever, provides so much light entertainment, I can almost see her furrowed, often furious brow. Just picture inviting thirty or so people to your house for Christmas dinner and they are all staying for the weekend. Fishing boats leave the small harbor regularly unless the winds reach gale force, or the ice seizes everything. A cute holiday story centered around the staff at a hotel on the small (fictional) island of Mure, located halfway between Scotland and Norway.Finally, the fact that all the characters seem to have no understanding of media, let alone social media, is baffling.
