On the tiny Scottish island of Mure, Christmas preparations are even more hectic than usual . . .
Flora MacKenzie is worried about her brother. Fintan hasn't got over the death of his partner, Colton, and Flora thinks he needs a project.
The Rock - the rambling, disused hotel on the tip of the island - was Colton's passion project before he died. 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. But running a hotel, they are about to discover, is not that easy. Especially when their motley staff includes a temperamental French chef, a spoilt Norwegian kitchen boy who can't peel a potato without mutilating his own hand and a painfully shy kitchen assistant who blushes when anyone speaks to her.
Can they pull it together in time for the big opening?
And can Flora help her family find happiness this Christmas?

Also, Mark and Marsha keep changing which drives me nuts...they didn't adopt Joel in the first place because their own children were too young, in book 3 they hadn't been able to have kids and in book 4 Marsha has a new name!
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. To call these new characters eccentric would be an understatement.
Thankfully, the story quickly settled into the usual familiar rhythm of island life, centring around the three generations of MacKenzie family, and the luxury hotel, The Rock.
I always enjoy catching up with Flora and Joel, and especially Lorna and Saif. Agot, as ever, provides so much light entertainment, I can almost see her furrowed, often furious brow. Her open disdain for the new addition “Buglish” is understandable and endearing.
If you are looking for a cosy read, which will make you smile. The residents of this gentle, close knit rural Scottish community, will provide you with some lovely escapism.
4* from me.
Lovely to go back to Mure and dive into this tiny Scottish island that is closer to Norway than the British coast. 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!
If you've read the series, in this book the Rock Hotel is on the verge of opening. Great to see more of Flore, Innes, Lorna, Fintan, and (sigh) the lovely Syrian Doctor Saif. I completely fell in love with Gaspard, the new French chef and the Norwegian Konstantin, and I am very sad that the Rock Hotel doesn't actually exist. (Not that I could afford it if it did.) Thank you, Jenny Colgan. More, please!
