Blog Tour: Review: The Big Dreams Beach Hotel by Lilly Bartlett

Wriggle your toes in the sand and feel the warm breeze on your face when you check into the hotel that’s full of dreams…

Three years after ditching her career in New York City, Rosie never thought she’d still be managing the quaint faded Victorian hotel in her seaside hometown.

What’s worse, the hotel’s new owners are turning it into a copy of their Florida properties. Flamingos and all. Cultures are clashing and the hotel’s residents stand in the way of the developers’ plans. The hotel is both their home and their family.

That’s going to make Rory’s job difficult when he arrives to enforce the changes. And Rosie isn’t exactly on his side, even though it’s the chance to finally restart her career. Rory might be charming, but he’s st that ill there to evict her friends.

How can she follow her dreams if it means ending everyone else’s?

This book was so laugh out loud funny that I had to stop reading it in public. I was getting some very funny looks.

I enjoyed the way the narrative weaved back and forth between past and present, it made Rosie's story all the more powerful and kept a little thread of mystery open throughout the story. And Rory! Oh, Rory.

The cast of characters is incredible. There are so many varied people. And they were so incredibly real and quirky that even the side characters came fully to life.

This book is hilarious and a perfect summer read. It's a glorious escape from typical British rainy days. A definite feel-good page turner!

  1. Sounds like a great read! Though I think it needs a less childish cover...
