The Bonneville Hotel is the best kept secret in Mayfair: its art deco suites and glittering ballrooms a former home-away-from-home for royalty and film stars alike. Recent years haven’t been kind, but thanks to Events Manager Rosie, the Bonneville is reclaiming some of its old cachet as a chic retro-glam wedding venue.
While Rosie’s weddings are the ultimate in romance, Rosie herself isn’t; she’s focused on the details, not the dramas. But when the hotel owner appoints his eccentric son Joe to the Bonneville staff, Rosie finds herself up against an unprecedented challenge: a rival whose predilection for the unconventional could derail not only Rosie’s own career, but the most elaborate, high-profile wedding the Bonneville has ever seen.
Thank you to The book bar/Quercus for sending me yet another beautiful book .
This review probably wont sell it as much as I would like as I usually write a review straight away but wordpress has been playing up .
I have not read any of her previous books and that’s the great thing with discovering new authors you get to add more titles to your tbr list.
I whizzed through this and loved all of it.
I felt like I was part of this story and there at the hotel due to the fantastic descriptive writing .
I could relate to Rosie in that she was quite shut off with her emotions due to being hurt in the past and not having the most romantic of boyfriends! Yet she was doing what some may consider a very romantic job ,bringing peoples dream weddings to life .She had her own orderly ways of doing things and it worked ….or so she thought.
In comes Joe who is about to threaten her control of things in the hotel and turn things on their head …but is he a blessing in disguise or in his case beach wear .
This book left me all warm and fuzzy and I loved Joe and his outlook on the world and he had a way of making simple things special .
A romantic funny touching read .
