Happy Monday bibliophiles!
Thrilled to share with you today my review for this uplifting story about “people of a certain age.”Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to Caroline James for her delightful words💕
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?
A heartwarming story filled with laughter and hope…
Good friends Jo and Hattie decided to open up a retreat for “people of a certain age.“ The purpose of the retreat is too offer classes to expand both the mind and the body of the boomers… I thought this was a fun refreshing book focusing on people over 50… a Book all about embracing every day no matter what your age….
This book had a cast of extremely engaging, eccentric and quirky, characters…. Kate a successful Business owner of a online dating service who has never found love herself… Andy a handsome James bond look alike with a hidden agenda… lucinda a washed up artist with a dirty side…. and last but not least eccentric yet lovable brothers Harry and Hugo… each character brought a little something different to the table and added some charm and wit to the story….
It is always nice to read a delightful uplifting story that will make you smile and giggle… a book that reinforces the fact that it is never too late for second chances, new beginnings, and true love….
Absolutely recommend when you are in the mood for a lovely story a bit of a pick me up…
