wife and his relationship with Lorna, and some other funny and not-so-funny antics around the island. this is the fourth book that takes place on this fabulous fictional island of Mure off the Scottish coast. 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. Flora feels guilty leaving baby Douglas with Joel, his father, who is totally enamored with his baby son. The residents of Mure are getting ready for the Rock to open for Christmas, the first Christmas after the death of Colton and the birth of Douglas.

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.

Er moet nog veel worden geregeld en terwijl medewerkster Iona het café draaiende houdt, zal Isla in de hotelkeuken gaan werken. A large amount of this story features the staff working in the kitchens of The Rock, including the fiery French chef Gaspard, Isla from the Seaside Kitchen who is incredibly shy, and Konstantin who is a young Norwegian man with absolutely no life experience of anything, but has been banished to Mure to get a job. As the island’s residents and special VIP guests gather for the hotel’s grand opening gala, Christmas is in the air. Siblings Fintan and Flora are trying to get the hotel ready for opening at Christmas, while Fintan battles grief and Flora adapts to the new world of motherhood.

Daarnaast leef je mee met juf Lorna en huisarts Saif, die nog steeds wacht op nieuws over zijn vrouw, erger je je aan een momzilla op het eiland, moet je lachen om de grote persoonlijkheid van Flora’s nichtje Agot en pakt een viral video niet helemaal uit zoals die bedoeld was.It wasn't just small things, some characters who have been in the entire series now have different first or last names. Yes, of course, there is a little romance in here, but it is not the ‘syrupy sweet’ stuff I have read in other books. While the book ostensibly follows the love story between a shy island girl and a fellow kitchen worker (who is actually a disgraced Norwegian prince exiled by his father to learn to do. The Rock has to employ some new staff, including a chef - and they get the temperamental Gaspard, a French chef who shouts, swears and smokes, but is a superb cook.

BUT Jenny Colgan has changed the back stories of several main characters which I find really frustrating. When we last left our core characters, Flora Mackenzie had just given birth to baby boy, Douglas, conceived with her partner and former-boss, Joel Binder. The nonsensical "will they wont they" was all the more insulting as was his "she was smiling in a picture of her wedding to the freedom fighter so maybe she's happy with this"?Fishing boats leave the small harbor regularly unless the winds reach gale force, or the ice seizes everything. You don’t need to read the earlier three books to enjoy this book, but it would help you to enjoy the development of the relationships between the characters. 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. An added bonus, there was no profanity (OK, two bad words but that's all), no graphic sex, and no disparaging comments about specific politicians.

Er is dus genoeg te beleven, maar alle verhaallijnen zijn prima te onderscheiden en samen vormen ze een mooi geheel. Also Agot, the young girl who keeps popping up in people's plot lines, is one of the moist ghastly spoiled brats I have ever read. 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. In ‘Het eilandhotel’ keer je terug naar Mure, het kleine eiland met zijn uitgestrekte strand, kleurrijke huisjes en inwoners, Flora’s café en het chique hotel op het noordelijkste puntje.There was no redeeming qualities in this novel and from start to finish the story was boring and bland.
