Confetti at the Hummingbird Hotel
About the book...
Welcome back to the Hummingbird Hotel!
When Abbie Coleman is asked to organise a Dance & Desserts retreat for a group of exhausted schoolteachers, she decides to pull out all the stops. With line dancing, flamenco and the Charleston on the agenda, along with a whole host of delicious themed desserts, it’s her chance to prove to everyone that she has – at last – gained the skills needed to be an accomplished hotelier. This time she’s determined there will be no “unfortunate incidents” that make the Hummingbird Hotel look like Corfu’s Comedy Central.
With her big fat Greek wedding to the gorgeous Nikos Angelopoulos only three weeks away, will she finally be able to deliver a retreat without the habitual chaos and calamity the hotel has become famous for? Can she turn a clunky chicken dance into a classy Charleston and a boogie-woogie into a beautiful ballet? Or will she be boot scootin’ it back to London and life as a floundering florist?
Let Daisy James whisk you away to gorgeous Corfu with a feel-good holiday read filled with sun, sea and a sprinkle of romance. Perfect for fans of Mandy Baggot, Sue Roberts & Sandy Barker
You've got to love a book that combines the old with the new. In this installment, we have characters from previous installments as well as the new focus on the "dance escape" and the upcoming nuptials...and what better event to anticipate at a gorgeous venue! Abbie's determination is noteworthy, her romance with Nikos heartwarming, and her utter love for those in the her care, memorable. It's great when you find a series that CAN be read apart, and yet you can't quite imagine the stories residing all by their lonesome. They need each other, as much as the characters in this story need one another, and though charming solo, they are bookishly wonderful when together.
To be sure, chaos and calamity do manage to find her...but Abbie is made of stronger stuff. It'll take a lot more than...well, what happens to knock her for a total loop, and when all is said and done, you'll be glad you were there for the ride. SO laugh with the antics, sigh with the heart vibes, and soar with the ending that fits the story to a "T". Whether you've been a fan for a while, or are just getting started, this is one series you should take a chance on as we bid summer days adieu.
About the author...
Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations - the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence - so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.
When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea - china plates and teacups are a must.
Daisy would love to hear from readers via her Facebook page or you can follow her on Twitter @daisyjamesbooks, or on Instagram @daisyjamesstories.
