Review Source: Simon & Schuster

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 one hundred and fifty 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.

This was such a fun read, as are all Alice Clayton books.  We are back in New York where Clara is brought in to completely update a luxury resort.  She is very much looking forward to making the hotel really shine when her almost boss, Archie, is not happy about all the changes to come.  The two are definitely at odds with each other but have an undeniable attraction going on.  Perfect set up for an amazing story!

I loved this book!  It has been my favorite book so far in the Hudson Valley series.  Which is saying a lot because I really loved the other books also.  Seriously Alice Clayton can do no wrong, I always enjoy every single one of her books.

I love Clara and Archie!  Clara is an amazing woman.  She is strong, talented, smart, and beautiful!  The total package!  I want to be her when I grow up.  Archie is set in his ways and traditions.  He's so stubborn that he reminds me of my husband.  I laughed out loud many times reading this book and seeing the banter between the two characters.

I am rating this book 4.5 stars because it was such a fun, romantic, story.  It kept me entertained the entire time and that's hard to do with my ADD.  I highly recommend this book and all of Alice Clayton's books!
