Description

Another heartfelt and delightful Christmas tale from the beloved New York Times best-selling author of The Bookshop on the Corner and Christmas on the Island.

New York Times best-selling author Jenny Colgan returns to the setting of Christmas on the Island and Endless Beach for a heartwarming new novel celebrating the season and Scotland.

On the tiny, beautiful, and remote island of Mure, halfway between Scotland and Norway, a new hotel opening is a big event. New mother Flora MacKenzie and her brother, Fintan, are working themselves half to death to get it ready in time for Christmas.

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. Konstantin Pederson is working his way up in the hotel's kitchens, too...but he is also, secretly, the only son of the duke of Utsire. Konstantin has been sent to learn what it is to work hard for a living before receiving his inheritance. Although he’s initially resentful, the place grows on him; he has never met anyone quite like Isla and her fellow Murians before.

As the island’s residents and special VIP guests gather for the hotel’s grand opening gala, Christmas is in the air. But so are more than a few small-town secrets....

Difficult to change narrators in a series

I enjoy this series with its wonderful local colour and many characters, but I had difficulty hearing them in a different “voice”. The narrator was fine, but it was disruptive to have familiar voices suddenly unrecognizable in a story that was clearly meant to be a pleasant holiday “easy read/listen”.

narrator

I've so enjoyed all in this series, but this last one, which was spoiled by the change in narrator! For me it ruined the rapport I had with the characters, I only listened thru the book to see what happens to each character that we have traveled with thru the prior books. I was very disappointed with this change, at least if new narrator would have followed thru with same accents, but she did not!

Last of the series

I loved this series - but I was very distracted by the change in narrator on the final book in the series. The narrator was fine, but the different voices for each character was disappointing.

Missing the previous narrator

I returned this book after a couple of chapters. SO disappointed with the narrator. I’ll have to get a hard copy as she completely spoiled these much loved characters for me :(

Buyer beware

Buyer beware....the moderator is different than the moderator for the first 3 books. Major disappointment. This moderator is not nearly as connected to the characters..her voices are different, she is not as warm, so many problems . I just ordered the text version of the book so I can enjoy the end to these stories and imagine my own voices!

Let down

I was really disappointed with the 4th book in the series! It fell short of the others and the change in the reader really made it worse....
the series should have ended with the third book....

Happy, Christmas vibes

Am always on the lookout for light, happy Christmas themed books at this time of year. This one is perfect (but you’ll appreciate it more if you read the other books in the series before it😉)

Disappointing Narration

The book was lovely. I read the series fairly back to back. I fell absolutely in love with the narrator of the first 3 books. Her voice was like poetry. I have no idea why she did not narrate this book. The narrator of this book would have been fine if it weren't for the glaring comparison to the first narrator. It was a big let down and hard to get over.

Not my favorite Jenny Colgan novel

After having just read the book leading to this one, which I loved, I was so excited to see a new book with a continuation of characters. This narrator did fine but the prior narrator and her character voices were exceptional. Narration makes such a big difference bringing color and life to a story.

Holiday Trip Back to Mure

I love Jenny Colgan books for when I want something, sweet, humorous & sentimental too. O Christmas at the Island Hotel gives us a trip back to the Scottish island of Mure & all of its inhabitants & it was a pleasure to visit with Flora & her family & friends. The narration was fabulous & it had me smiling & tearing up—a delightful holiday treat.
