About this deal

We are constantly expanding our range of books, social stationery and calendars, with all the leading publishers and suppliers.

Habe dieses Buch als NEU gekauft, vollen Preis bezahlt und es eben grade erhalten als wäre es von einem Laster gefallen. What I love about her books is the witty writing, the laugh out loud comedy, the heartwarming plots, and the cozy settings. Although this is book four in Jenny Colgan’s ‘Mure Series,’ it is my first from this talented author. You can imagine what must be done to open a hotel and restaurant several months before Christmas, no? You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.And while I really liked the series in general, if another Mure Island book comes out, I would hesitate before reading it--I simply have no patience with the inconsistencies and changes--when you are writing a series of books that readers grow attached to, it makes zero sense to start changing names, etc. The new hotel’s impressive kitchens throw together two unlikely new friends: Isla Gregor is the hardworking young girl who has been a waitress in the island's cafe, dreaming of a bigger, better life now that she’s at a proper fancy hotel. Fishing boats leave the small harbor regularly unless the winds reach gale force, or the ice seizes everything.

And then he reappears to somehow kiss the chef after a brief and inconsequential disagreement starting the second baseless romance of the novel. For me, there wasn't the character attachment or emotional investment in the outcome which could have potentially happened if I had read the previous books. Just like her writing, details and descriptions are kept to a minimum leaving the choicest words to tell the story. 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. A lovely, warm-hearted Christmas tale about a family and extended family on the tiny island of Mure.

While this book is part of a series, I had no trouble reading it as a standalone, and didn’t feel lost. 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! 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. Hoewel ik stiekem graag nóg iets meer kerstsfeer had gevoeld, krijg je toch al een flinke portie toegeworpen met sneeuw, kerstbomen, lichtjes, verrukkelijke diners en liefde. This charming and cosy festive story demands you switch off the TV and curl up with a mug of hot chocolate .
