Blog Tour and Review | The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James | #NEW #WomensFiction #Comedy #Review

Title: The Best Boomerville Hotel
Author: Caroline James 
Genre: Women's Fiction
Publishers: Ruby Fiction
Release Date: 13 March 2018


Let the shenanigans begin at the 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?

This is my first read of this author and the genre - women's fiction, is different to my usual reads nowadays but I did enjoy it. 

The Boomerville Hotel is situated in the Lake District and is a haven for people of a certain age also known as the ‘Baby Boomers’. There was fun to be had by the residents in learning new skills and developing new passions. There were plenty of off the wall characters and the plot was quirky and fun. Some things were a little off the wall and a few eye rolling moments. The characters were well developed and made you empathise with them somewhat (a few not so much)

Overall though an enjoyable escape and I think I’d like to visit! Four stars.
