Publisher's Summary

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 movie 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.

entertaining but for the end

Enjoyable romantic novel, the author delivers what is expected of this genre. However, I had some troubles with the end: Even though you know what’s going to happen, the story comes to such an abrupt end that I initially thought my iPod skipped a chapter!
Narration is OK.

Romantic escapism and a fun read

Where does The Honeymoon Hotel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

High - Really enjoyable and a feel good book for rainy days

What other book might you compare The Honeymoon Hotel to, and why?

Vintage Girl is another book from the same author, with some great descriptive passages and again makes you smile in all the right places

Have you listened to any of Jessica Anne Ball’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This was enjoyable

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Rosie's realisation in the ballroom after the New Year's Eve party - quite magical

Any additional comments?

A really nice feel-good book that is ideal for a time when you need a lift.

Extremely predictable but exquisite detail

The story was extremely predictable, it would be nice to have chick lit which didn't feature a romance for the heroine, just a happy healthy relationship in the background. However the descriptions of the setting were exquisite and the characters very funny and relatable. The performance was also wonderful, the perfect voice for the story.

So so

Bit too obvious as there were no surprises. I wanted more hotel and less romantic stuff.

Puts a smile on your face!

What does Jessica Anne Ball bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narrator was really excellent at engaging listener, and the reading was fluid. Her emphasis made the story come alive!

Any additional comments?

This is the kind of book that really puts a smile on your face. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. The characters were so alive and the story, although somewhat predictable, it was massively fun!

Very enjoyable light reading

What did you like most about The Honeymoon Hotel?

The story, the description of the Hotel and the events.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joe, because he felt funny and down to earth.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The female/male voices. Most of the times the dialogs with the two main characters were a bit confusing.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This book isn't meant to move, it serves to relax.

Any additional comments?

I truly enjoy some light reading and if you like a good feel good book, go for it.

Just what we need to brighten our summer.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Honeymoon Hotel to be better than the print version?

As I have only listened to this book I cannot say. Audio books let me absorb books I wouldn't get round to reading.

What did you like best about this story?

The gentle rhythm of the words made listening a form of relaxation. Yes the book was exciting and dramatic in places but it didn't jar or fling things at you for effect.

What about Jessica Anne Ball’s performance did you like?

Clear, crisp, lovely tone. perfect for this book.
