This was a lovely book and perfect for reading snuggled up on cold winter nights! It was a nice, easy read full of loveable characters. I loved the main premise of the book, which was Chicky's return from New York and her decision to open the Stone House hotel. Her story was sad but also uplifting as she managed to make something for herself. I liked how each chapter was a character(s) story who was a visitor to the hotel. Each story gave a background to the character and showed how the visit to Stone House made a difference to them. A classic Maeve Binchy, you get exactly what you expect and I love that. I give it 9/10.
