About this deal

A delicious confection of patisserie and passion' Daily Mail Must Reads'A joy of a read' Bella'Another delightful read. The owners so Justin starts to ruffle Megs feathers and Meg digs her heals in further to keep the hotel going. This is definitely a good bit of escapism for the spring and would also make a perfect holiday read.

Set in 1964, OEE follows the adventures of 22-year-old Meg as she sets off to help her mother run a small hotel in Dorset.But it’s not long before Meg starts having ideas as to what they can do to get more visitors, because close by is a hotel with much more updated facilities. This is the perfect escapist read, and I really hope Fforde picks up the story of these characters once more, because I am not ready to let go of them just yet!

The romance bit was also frustrating because I'm not such a fan of witholding information til the very end, so I didn't appreciate that we actually confirmed from Justin that he WAS with Laura, already quite near the end. Recently her old hobbies of ironing and housework have given way to singing, Flamenco dancing and husky racing. I believe falling in love is the best thing in the world, and I want all my characters to experience it, and my readers to share their stories. Justin is arrogant, patronising and sexist, and while I know those attitudes where (and still are) prevalent, this made him a much harder character to like as the book progresses.There is an annual dinner held at the hotel and the irascible chef has fired all the local staff, preferring to use agency staff instead, who have cancelled at the last minute. You can tell that there’s a lot more than first impressions and there were a couple of twists and turns along the way of this book, a few that I managed to guess but others that I didn’t have a clue on which just added that extra layer. Overall a very good quality service from this seller and I would not hesitate to recommend this seller.
