The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James

19th March 2018

What the publisher says:

Let the shenanigans begin at the Best 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 its 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?


What I say:

Jo is the owner of the Boomerville Hotel and she runs it along with her friend Hattie. After a much needed renovation they reopen with a new target market – the older more discerning customer who wants to spend their time productively even while on holiday. Soon they attract a range of guests who interact wonderfully with each other and the staff members. The activities provided sounded fun and the evening meal made me wish this was real and somewhere I could go with my friends for a fun night out. Soon the story concentrates more on one or two of the characters and we see that one of them is not what they seem.

This is such a fun, light hearted read which somehow covers romance, humour and a little bit of mystery. I greatly enjoyed it and I find it very easy to recommend
