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?
‘Britain’s answer to the Best Marigold Hotel! Book me in for Sharing with the Shaman and Clairvoyance in mid-life – this book is fabulous!’
Nikki Ashton, Amazon best-selling author
I’d firstly like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources and Caroline James for including me on this blog tour.
This is my first Caroline James book and it most definitely won’t be my last!
There is something about The Best Boomerville Hotel that just fitted into my comfort zone of reading. I adore Caroline’s writing style, this is so much more than a fluffy chick lit novel. Don’t get me wrong i love chick lit and i’ve been lucky enough to review the creme de la creme of the genre, but The Best Boomerville Hotel has a slight edge to it.
The characters are rich and engaging and the setting was perfect, i actually felt as if i’d had a mini break every time i read it. If there was a real Boomerville Hotel i would be booking straight away!
As well as love and laughter there is also an edge of mystery and intrigue surrounding one of the characters, i found myself drifting back at regular intervals to read ”just one more page”
I currently have post Boomerville blues! Thank you Caroline for a gorgeous read.
