Review: Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach

By the author of the bestselling The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Tulip Fever, the hilarious and romantic novel set in a crumbling bed and breakfast 

In her effortlessly winning novels Tulip Fever and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Deborah Moggach charmed readers and critics alike with her generous prose and hilarious dialogue. With Heartbreak Hotel, Moggach has triumphed once again. 

When retired actor Buffy decides to leave London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for. 

In possession of a run-down bed and breakfast that leans more toward the shabby than the chic and is, quite literally, miles from nowhere, Buffy realizes that he needs to fill the beds—and fast. Otherwise, his vision of the pastoral countryside will go up in smoke. 

Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) nebbishy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle. But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers finds that they have more in common than perhaps they first thought. 

A charming romantic comedy that will captivate even the most determined urbanite, Heartbreak Hotel is a supreme entertainment.

ARC received for review.

I am among the possibly three people on the planet who neither read nor watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel so this was my first experience with the author and I can't believe I waited this long!

This was an absolutely perfect read full of charm.  You couldn't help but love Buffy from the very first page.  He was just adorable!  The motley collection of guests at his B&B were sweet and funny and people you would genuinely like to know in real life.

I loved the entire book but by far the best part of it was the very last chapter which wrapped everything up beautifully and left me closing the book with a teary smile.

If you are already a fan of the author then you are sure to thoroughly enjoy this.  If this is your first introduction to her then prepare to be wowed.  I highly, highly recommend this gorgeously written, touching book!

★★★★ = Really Liked It
