Every time I opened my Kindle, an ad for one of Pamela Kelly’s books would be there. I was instantly drawn to her beautiful covers and when I saw the cover for THE HOTEL I knew I had to read it. I’ve now ordered her whole Nantucket series. That’s how much I loved THE HOTEL and this is my very first time reading Ms. Kelley. I can’t wait to read more of her stories!

THE HOTEL is a slow burn contemporary story that I was pulled in to from the very first page. To be honest, I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it. I knew I would read it anyway, because I had been seeing Ms. Kelly’s books over and over, but the cover really pulled me in. I would love to stay at this beautiful inn! I loved everything about this beautiful story and I’m excited to recommend it to my reading friends. Pamela Kelley has a way of grabbing her readers and she never lets us go. I am truly hoping that Pamela Kelley will turn this into a series because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye.

THE HOTEL really takes a turn that will have you unable to put this beautiful story down. Neither Paula or David are looking for a relationship, but they can’t seem to ignore their growing feelings. It was cute watching these two dance around their feelings for each other. You will also get to meet a famous actress who needs to get away from her crazy life and be alone for awhile. One of the reasons the Whitley Hotel is so popular is because they are very quiet about who is staying there. If you are a fan of Debbie Macomber, you are going to love this author’s books!

THE HOTEL is filled with twists and turns and had me staying up way too late one night to finish! I had to know where Pamela Kelley was taking us and what would happen to David and Paula. I really loved how the whole community came to Paula and David’s aid and only wanted them to feel loved and realize that they were home. There is so much heart in Pamela’s writing that I was left with a huge smile on my face and my heart very happy. I could totally see THE HOTEL becoming a Lifetime movie and I would love to see it. All of the characters are very interesting and believable, so much so that I felt as if I’ve known them for a long time. I would love to hang out with The Whitleys. I’m sure they could teach me a thing or two and I know they would keep my laughing all day long!

Secrets and lies…at Nantucket’s most exclusive and glamorous, family-owned hotel.

The Whitley is Nantucket’s most exclusive waterfront hotel–a sprawling collection of pristine white cottages and an elegant main building on a long stretch of private, white sandy beach.

It’s a family owned business–brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts, all work there in various capacities.

Paula is happy in her back office accounting position. But changes are in store when her grandfather promotes her and fires her cousin–who then blames Paula.

Meanwhile, a blond romantic comedy superstar is hiding out at The Hotel for a few months. She meets Paula’s brother, a chef–who has no idea who she is–and she likes it that way.

Paula’s grandfather also hires a consultant to help her settle into her new role. But she isn’t sure what to think of David, who grew up on Nantucket but now lives in Manhattan.

He’s a brilliant consultant and will be assessing Paula’s suitability for the role. He’s also home for another reason, a difficult family issue that makes Manhattan seem very far away.

A new family saga from the Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller author of The Nantucket Inn and The Restaurant.

  2. Very nice review, Susan. I see a lot of ads for Pamela Kelley’s books, too. I think I’ve read one of hers. 🤔 That cover is 😍, I agree. The story sounds like a good one. I’m not a big DM fan so not sure if I’d be into this one, but you make it sound worthwhile. Thanks for the excellent review. 🙂
