BOOK REVIEW -HEARTBREAK HOTEL BY DEBORAH MOGGACH


Book Description
Publication Date: March 3, 2015

By the author of the bestselling The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, the hilarious and romantic novel set in a crumbling bed and breakfast

In her effortlessly winning novels Tulip Fever and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Deborah Moggach charmed readers and critics alike with her generous prose and hilarious dialogue. With Heartbreak Hotel, Moggach has triumphed once again.

When retired actor Buffy decides to leave London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for.

In possession of a run-down bed and breakfast that leans more toward the shabby than the chic and is, quite literally, miles from nowhere, Buffy realizes that he needs to fill the beds—and fast. Otherwise, his vision of the pastoral countryside will go up in smoke.

Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) nebbishy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers finds that they have more in common than perhaps they first thought.

A charming romantic comedy that will captivate even the most determined urbanite, Heartbreak Hotel is a supreme entertainment.

I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL is an eclectic group of people. It bring these people together when their marriage or relationship have ended. It also follows the life of retired actor Russell Buffery(Buffy). Buffy inherits a B&B from a friend.  This is a classic story that will make you laugh and cry. I enjoyed this novel. I had never read this author before, but I will definitely put her on my TBR pile. I give HEARTBREAK HOTEL 4/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW – THE RENFIELD SYNDROME BY J. A. SAARE

Book Description

February 3, 2015

The future can be altered, but the side effects can be hell.

Rhiannon’s Law, Book 2

Rhiannon believed a deranged child vampire was the most dangerous adversary she’d ever face, until she discovers something far worse. Sent forward in time, she hopes to deliver a message to her vampire lover, Disco, that will break the bargain she was forced to make with the demon Zagan. Until she finds reality altered almost beyond recognition.

Humans are nearly extinct, killed by a vaccine that was supposed to protect them from the effects of a bloodsucker’s bite. The few who have survived are now dominated by vampires. Worse, she finds that in this reality, there is no one she can trust.

Nearly crushed by loss and betrayal, she shifts focus from severing the old debt against Zagan, to exacting revenge—with consequences she never fathomed. Only by reaching deep into the darkness within her can she hope to find the strength to fight for her life against creatures that want her dead and buried.

Warning: Contains werewolves with wandering hands, vampires with a new thirst for blood, demons with serious issues, and a foul-mouthed heroine who refuses to become a damsel in distress.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

THE RENFIELD SYNDROME is a new take on the supernatural world.  The world building, character development, and story line is w  very well-developed. I loved the character of Rhiannon. She is a very strong-minded person and knows what she wants. She does not shy away from conflict, but embraces it.  When she tries to help her boyfriend get rid of his debt to a demon, the demon exacts revenge on Rhiannon. Now she must go back in time to prevent the Renfield Syndrome from happening. I loved this book and cannot wait until the next book. I am also going back to read the first book in the series. I give THE RENFIELD SYNDROME 5/ 5 stars.
