Publisher's Summary

The third in the hilarious yet sizzling-hot Hudson Valley series from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Alice Clayton.
Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she's never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she's fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She's especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can't-get-enough-of hot cross buns....
Archie Bryant, the man with the buns, is fifth generation and one-day owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He's determined to save his family's legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way - by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There's no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn 150 years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara's ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can't deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.
It's sticky; it's messy; it's sweet; it's Buns.

Narrorator makes it difficult

After reading Cream of the Crop, I was excited about this next book in the series but I can not get past the narrorator.

More like flatbread. "See what I did there?" :)

What did you like best about Buns? What did you like least?

As always, I loved checking in with characters from previous books within this series... and what a treat to see a few of my favorites from other series!

While I liked Clara and Archie, individually, I didn't really buy into their chemistry (seemed a little more hate/hate in the beginning rather than love/hate).

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was predictable, but okay. Would have enjoyed a little more in the epilogue.

What three words best describe Elizabeth Louise and Jason Carpenter ’s voice?

Solid... enjoyable...non-distracting

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Only if it were a movie of the entire series, not just this one book.

Any additional comments?

As usual, Alice had me laughing out loud. While this was probably my least favorite in the series, still found the cast of characters and their interactions delightful and entertaining. Unfortunately, the conflict between the main characters just didn't work for me and the resolution was just a little flat for me. But, I sure hope we get another trip to the Hudson Valley.
