  • My favourite

    What'S not to love about this series? I really enjoyed Buns, it was as fun and quirky as the previous two books in the series. This is the story of Archie Bryant, an uptight widower who is about to take over the running of Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls and the bossy, yet determined Clara Morgan who is assigned the job to bring the hotel back to it's glory and move it into the current century whilst retaining it's charm and history. From the first moment these two meet there is a push and pull situation happening, both equally opinionated and determined as to the vision of the hotel and how it should move forward. Having been brought up in the foster care system, Clara shies away from holidays and anything “family” orientated. Archie, on the other hand is all about the history of his family. These two should not connect and yet they do.; this is a case of opposites attracting and after spending a great deal of time flirting, Archie and Clara finally give in to their feelings. The banter and camaraderie between Archie and Clara as well as their friends is amazing. It really is like coming home when I picked up this book. I love these characters and the mischief they get up too. I always finish an Alice Clayton with a smile on my face. This was possibly my favourite of the trilogy as I absolutely loved Archie and Clara, separately and together. The vulnerability that both had as they slowly opened their hearts and minds to the possibility of love was heart warming.

  • Each one gets better and better.

    Alice Clayton for the win! This book…it is everything. I literally could not put this one down. It is hands down my favorite of this series. Archie is totally not what I expected and that was a brilliant move on Alice Clayton’s part. Holy Smokes was this book good. Hot, funny, the tension palpable. All these things wrapped up in a story of hate filled love. Ugh! I thought the tree farmer and the dairy farmer were it for me. Move over Leo and Oscar, Archie done stole my heart. The sexual tension between Clara and Archie is perfectly written. Their banter is witty, full of sass, and the smartassery (I pulled a Natalie and made up my own word there) was off the charts hilarious. I will never look at a Hot Cross Bun the same. I think Easter has been ruined for me, or maybe not. I really think this book is at the top of my Clayton list now. Seriously, it is so darn good (That’s the Archie talk there). He’s a naughty boy wrapped up in a put together package topped with his tortoiseshell-rimmed glasses. I want to kiss his freckles, and I will never look at freckles the same way again. Another wonderful, fun, and sexy book from Alice and I think you’re all going to love it as much as I did.

  • It was the glasses!

    ​ **4.5 Stars** Oh this book. I loved the other two in this series so I was completely excited for Clara's story. What I wasn't prepared for was Archie. I loved Archie. Archie was so completely swoony. When you first meet him you're kind of like woah, you're a jerk, but the more you read the more you love him. Clara and Archie didn't get along at first but holy attraction. It's there, you can feel it as you read it. The more time they spent together the stronger the chemistry and attraction is. I seriously loved how they challenged each other but what I loved even more was how they complimented each other. Watching how they interacted with each other and how they fit so well together. They healed each other and that was just what they needed. I loved all the words Alice gave us and I secretly hope this isn't the end of Hudson Valley.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Very good as all Alice Clayton's books

    I loved every books from Alice Clayton and this one was a pleasure to read . The books can be read as standalone by it is better to read them in order and enjoy the world created by the author .
