This book by @CarolineJames12 was a joy to read at a very unhappy time in my life, I needed cheering up after losing my much loved little dog.
The cover made me smile as it reminded me of my favourite TV programme as a child ‘ On The Buses’ and the characters where just as much fun.
I laughed out loud, enjoyed love and mystery too. Infact this book has it all and I felt I knew each character personally and didn’t want the book to end.
My book arrived a few days after Bertie died aged 16 and Caroline James helped me smile again.
I give this book 5 *
Britain’s answer to the best Marigold Hotel’
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?
