The Honeymoon Hotel by Hester Browne

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.

I recently discovered author Hester Browne when I read The Vintage Girl which I loved I was pleased to find a new great author and I couldn't wait to read her new release The Honeymoon Hotel after not long being back from our Honeymoon ourselves!

Ambitious Rosie is the events manager at The Bonneville Hotel in Mayfair, she is so passionate about her weddings that she arranges but she is determined to be appointed manager of the hotel which she rightfully deserves but there is something or rather someone in her way, the hotel owners son!

This book was a complete joy to read. It was a great mix of romance, humour and drama and bridezilla's!! I was a little surprised by the storyline as I thought it would be more about brides and grooms on their honeymoons rather than the actual weddings but I loved the storyline none the less.

I loved Rosie's character she is very determined, ambitious, and is a perfectionist that also has been unlucky in love and I couldn't help but hope that she got where she wanted to be. The Bonneville Hotel sounded like a fun place to work with a great bunch of workers and the hotel itself sounded very grand and inviting. Yes the storyline was predictable but this didn't matter as it was fun to watch the events unfold.

This was a charming, delightful read that I thoroughly enjoyed.
