An Unwanted Guest By Shari Lapena

An Unwanted Guest By Shari Lapena


We can’t choose the strangers we meet.

As the guests arrive at beautiful, remote Mitchell’s Inn, they’re all looking forward to a relaxing weekend deep in the forest, miles from anywhere. They watch their fellow guests with interest, from a polite distance.

Usually we can avoid the people who make us nervous, make us afraid.

With a violent storm raging, the group finds itself completely cut off from the outside world. Nobody can get in – or out. And then the first body is found . . . and the horrifying truth comes to light. There’s a killer among them – and nowhere to run.

Until we find ourselves in a situation we can’t escape. Trapped.

My Thoughts:

A group of strangers with their own individual stories come to a hotel in the middle of nowhere, they get stuck because of the increasing snow storm and can’t call for help. Then dead bodies start appearing, it makes for a good plot line but I felt as though it wasn’t tense enough. The ending didn’t do really much for me. But I did like all the red herrings involving the guests and the hotel staff.

One small act of kindness By Lucy Dillon

What can you do to make the world a better place?
Libby and her husband Jason have moved back to his hometown to turn the family B&B into a boutique hotel. They have left London behind and all the memories – good and bad – that went with it.
The injured woman Libby finds lying in the remote country road has lost her memory. She doesn’t know why she came to be there, and no one seems to be looking for her.
When Libby offers to take her in, this one small act of kindness sets in motion a chain of events that will change many people’s lives . .

My Thoughts:

One of my book friends gave me this book as she knew I would like it and I did. I have read a few of Lucy Dillon’s books before and really enjoyed them. I loved the story to this one as it is a little bit different. I find with Lucy’s books you don’t have to concentrate on them too much and it made me change the way I look at life. I thought Libby was great but I didn’t care too much for her husband Jason, she could do so much better than him. I loved Bob the hotels dog too. This book is definitely worth a read.

Love Me Or Leave Me By Claudia Carroll

Love Me Or Leave Me By Claudia Carroll



Can an unhappy ending become an exciting new beginning?

Chloe Townsend was dumped at the alter. But now she’s landed an incredible job, running a brand-new boutique hotel with a difference. It’s a pioneering ‘divorce hotel’, designed to make every aspect of breaking up pain free – all in a single weekend.

No one is better qualified than Chloe to deal with relationships at crisis point. But, with three unhappy couples needing her help, she’s forced to tackle her own secret heartbreak.

Can she hold it together and prove that she’s up to the job?

My Thoughts:

This book I won on Goodreads.When reading the blurb for this book I have to say I was intrigued, the idea of a divorce hotel sounded like a fresh, intriguing idea. Throughout the book you meet a few divorce couples that have completely different characteristics and reasons for wanting a divorce but the main character is Chloe, who has had her fair share of heartbreak. A nice, light-hearted story with a unique idea that really does work.
