Queen of Christmas and Sunday Times top 5 bestselling author Jenny Colgan's slice of festive delight will warm your heart this winter
'Nobody does cosy, get-away-from-it-all romance like Jenny Colgan'
'A cracker. . . The one must-read this festive season'
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, Coltan, and Flora thinks he needs a project.
The Rock - the rambling, disused hotel on the tip of the island - was Coltan'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?
