Review of Buns (Hudson Valley #3) by Alice Clayton

Buns (Hudson Valley #3) by Alice Clayton

Review: This was a lot of fun to read, although it was a bit slow for my taste but it had that classic funny humor that Clayton is so well know for.

Other then the main plot being to wrap up the Hudson Valley series, but still leaving a cute character out there as an open door to come back to the series. “Buns” was a really great ending to the hot and funny series that makes you want to search every farmers market looking for your own hot and young farmer for yourself.

I do have to say that my favorite part of this whole book was when one of Clayton’s well known and amazing characters from the Cocktail series showed up to talk about insulating the walls to help with the noise in from rooms next door (Caroline-Wallbanger).

After reading this I am so excited for anything by Clayton that comes out in the future.

Favorite Quote:

“Don’t worry about it. She extended the measuring tape about ten inches or so. I’ve got one just like him back at home.”



“Tell Natalie everything, starting with how much he loves it when you ride him like a cowgirl.

“Oh, for God’s sake”, I snapped, now covering my entire head with the towel. But then I peeked out a little. “Actually, that’s one hundred percent correct, how the hell did you know that?

It’s a talent. She signed.”

Would I? Buy this book for others? I already have… Reread this book? Not really.

Summary: 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.
