I’m delighted to be supporting fellow blogger and friend Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources in bringing you the latest novel from Caroline James; The Best Boomerville Hotel.
Caroline has been a stalwart on Linda’s Book Bag, having provided her top ten writing tips here, when Coffee, Tea, the Caribbean and Me was published and allowing me to interview her here. Caroline also told me about writer’s block and I reviewed her novel Jungle Rock here.
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 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?
