About this deal

It wasn't just small things, some characters who have been in the entire series now have different first or last names. But there are some good subplots too - will Dr Saif ever find out whether his long-lost wife is still alive…? Flora is clearly jealous of the close bond her husband appears to have with their newborn, but her focus, despite this worry, is still on opening her brother's dead husband's hotel, because, you know, reasons. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. While the book ostensibly follows the love story between a shy island girl and a fellow kitchen worker (who is actually a disgraced Norwegian prince exiled by his father to learn to do.

The fact that everyone seems to do this in the book is another aspect of two-dimensionalism, and adds little to the story. I must admit to being a bit concerned initially, when the book seemed to focus very heavily on two rather quirky new characters, Gaspard and Konstantin. 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. 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.

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! 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.

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.

Joel forgets to mention that he has arranged for the son of the Duke of Norway, a spoiled and lazy brat, to come and work as a kitchen boy at the Hotel, to help his father straighten the kid out. 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. You can imagine what must be done to open a hotel and restaurant several months before Christmas, no? Hij heeft veel moeite om het hotel dat hem is nagelaten klaar te krijgen voor de grote opening, er zijn geldproblemen en hij mist zijn grote liefde enorm.
