About the book:
Trish Doller’s The Suite Spot is a charming romance novel about taking a chance on a new life and a new love.
Rachel Beck has hit a brick wall. She’s a single mom, still living at home and trying to keep a dying relationship alive. Aside from her daughter, the one bright light in Rachel’s life is her job as the night reservations manager at a luxury hotel in Miami Beach—until the night she is fired for something she didn’t do.
On impulse, Rachel inquires about a management position at a brewery hotel on an island in Lake Erie called Kelleys Island. When she’s offered the job, Rachel packs up her daughter and makes the cross country move.
What she finds on Kelleys Island is Mason, a handsome, moody man who knows everything about brewing beer and nothing about running a hotel. Especially one that’s barely more than foundation and studs. It’s not the job Rachel was looking for, but Mason offers her a chance to help build a hotel—and rebuild her own life—from the ground up.
The Suite Spot by Trish Doller is the second book in the contemporary romance Beck Sisters series. As with a lot of romance series the main characters have changed from those in the first book of the Beck Sisters series so each of the books can be read as a standalone if choosing to do so. There are a few mentions of the first book’s character’s though for those that have followed from the beginning.
Rachel Beck feels like she has been stuck in her life and not really getting anywhere. Rachel is a single mother of a beautiful little girl but still lives at home and keeps going back to a dead end relationship with her ex. When Rachel loses her job she does something impulsive and applies to one several states away.
After finding out she’s been offered the job on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie Rachel packs up her and her daughter’s things and heads north. After arriving at Kelleys Island Rachel finds that her new boss, Mason, is not what she was expecting but Rachel is determined to make the most of the fresh start for her and her daughter.
Going into The Suite Spot by Trish Doller I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t love it as much as the first book, Float Plan, as that one was sailing the Caribbean and I love to virtually travel. Well, my fear was needless as I quickly settled into The Suite Spot and found that I really enjoyed these main characters and their story too. There was still a new start for Rachel in a charming location and I’m totally a sucker for cute kids being involved too so I completely enjoyed this second book just as much as the first.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
