Today I am delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for The Best Boomerville Hotel – the new release by Caroline James! The book was published on 13th March 2018.
Let the shenanigans begin at the Boomerville hotel …
Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have a vision – a holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. One hotel refurbishment later and the Best Boomerville Hotel is open for business!
Perhaps not surprisingly Boomerville attracts more than it’s fair share of eccentric clientele: there’s fun loving Sir Henry Mulberry and his brother Hugo; Lucinda Brown, an impoverished artist with more ego than talent; Andy Mack, a charming Porsche-driving James Bond lookalike, as well as Kate Simmons, a woman who made her fortune from an internet dating agency but still hasn’t found ‘the One’ herself.
With such an array of colourful individuals there’s bound to be laughs aplenty, but could there be tears and heartbreak too and will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?
This was such a fun read, I flew through the pages!
I do love reading a book that leaves you with a smile on your face and this was definitely one of them, I was smiling and laughing for most of the book!
It was really well written and the setting of the book was great – The Hotel is the type of place I would want to visit and I am still a way off the target age – they have so many fabulous things to do and most of them are on my wish list!
Jo and Hattie are great and I really liked Kate too – I loved Sir Henry, he added just what was needed and they are a fantastic bunch of characters, I genuinely enjoyed reading every page, it was laid back and a very easy read.
Five stars from me and another excellent book from Caroline!!
