All the characters spring to life on the page, and all the stories are engaging. So sad that it's Binchy's last novel.

I have loved this writer for a long time and will miss her. Lovely stories and they leave one feeling good, kind of like high tea with scones, cream and jam!

Typical Binchy novel, written around a central local with different characters entering the picture. I've always found her novels very easy reading and it's sad that we won't be able to pick up another of her novels and getting a quick Binchy fix.

LOVED it. A wonderful swan song, but so sad it is her last. It seemed obvious she was launching a new series with this one. Having read (and loved) all of the ones in her earlier series (Scarlet Feather, etc.), I would have LOVED to continue to get to know these characters. A wonderful read.

As a big Binchy fan, I was very sad that this was her last book. I haven't enjoyed all of her books, but this one was good. I really loved it. A quick, easy read, easy to follow, lovable but flawed characters. Made me want to go there!

Nice Story, sad to know it is her last book.

My first Binchy book. I loved it! Each character was unique and had a stimulating if not every day story that connected me into their lives. I will definitely read another Maeve Binchy novel

It's a good quick read, and if you have liked Binchy's work in the past, you should like this one as well. I thought the stories within the story worked well. Some of the stories revolve around the people who live in the area, while others revolve around those staying at the inn. My only real disappointment is that a few of the storylines are not totally wrapped up by the end. Had Binchy not died after completing this book, it would have been a good series to follow.

I'm totally amazed how many people enjoyed this book. I had to force myself to keep reading and kept hoping the next section would prove more interesting. It didn't. I found it a total waste of time.

The visitors to a new guesthouse on Ireland’s Western coast, get a healing vacation from their hosts. Alas, Binchy’s last book.
