There are the stereotypical characters—a temperamental, abrasive French chef, a rich spoiled twenty-something, a bratty child whose parents think she’s just adorable, an ambitious London journalist and, of course, the sweet local girl, Isla. 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. 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.

There is a developing romance between Konstantin, a newcomer from Norway, and Isla, who used to work at the Island Cafe and is now working in the kitchen at the Rock. 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.

What made this book a huge disappointment for me were the many inconsistencies with the previous books. When you step inside the twinkling lights, Christmas decor, clinking of dishes, and the soft chatter of locals warms you all the way through. And everyone's spoilt and outspoken 5 year old, Agot is back, not happy about Douglas' existence within the family, and generally demanding all manner of things. The plot involved major suspension of disbelief (a spoiled, lazy foreign prince is forced by his father to get a job in the kitchen of a hotel on a small Scottish island). 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.

macht den Eindruck, dass das Buch schnell geschrieben wurde, um das derzeitige Interesse an der Serie auszuschöpfen. The cleverly constructed storylines were engaging and relatable and packed with wry levity and amusing observations from a large cast of compellingly quirky and complex characters. There are a handful of literary references, too, which is fine, although I was irritated at mention of Edward (rather than Edmund) and turkish delight. Fintan goes off to Glasgow to interview chefs and brings back the only one willing to go to Mure, a tattooed, long-haired, Frenchman, named Gaspard. 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.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. It’s now common knowledge that one of the best tools to tackle the climate crisis is to plant trees. This book was different, as it introduced a lot of new characters into the mix and focused less on the usual cast of characters, but I was ok with that. 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. Definitely yes as well, but you need to have read the first three books in the series for this one to be as meaningful as possible.
