About this ebook

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?

4.5 star review of The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James This is a new author to me and wow what an introduction. I laughed so much I cried in this book; it was fabulous and I couldn't put it down. The writing is well executed, hilarious, sweet, dramatic and honestly a great read. The clientele are eclectic and made for some seriously funny moments in this book.Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have decided to create a holiday retreat with a difference, targeting a specific type of client.It kind of reminded me of the cast of characters found in an Agatha Christie book, diverse and entertaining. I love the sound of The Boomerville Hotel, set in the Lake District and would love to visit the area. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read and one that I recommend. This book gives you hope that even if you are slightly older, you never know when love will find you. A book full of diverse stories that will take you on an entertaining journey.

This wonderful hotel! Would love to book a stay there! The story is great, the interaction between Hattie, Jo and the various guests believable. Kate is a very human heroine who I could fully relate to. The crime added an additional layer to an already good story. Thus new genre of books from Choc Lit bodes well to being a winner if thus first one is the standard.

Such great characters, that you just don't want to stop reading. Thoroughly enjoyed every page of it. The hotel is run by a lovely, caring owner who wants to set up something different for the baby boomers. Laughter and adventure follows. Highly recommend!
