Hello book friends!
This was such a fun uplifting feel good book! I love when books are about characters of a certain age, because apparently I am now a person of that certain age.🙋🏻♀️
Boomerville at Ballymegille
Boomerville is back!
Join Hattie and Jo as they head to Southern Ireland to open Boomerville Manor, a holiday retreat for guests of ‘a certain age’. There’s Irish craic and shenanigans aplenty for the colourful cast of characters as everyone gathers for the grand opening.
Meet Melissa, an ex-cabaret singer running from her abusive husband, and Bill, a bachelor bullied from beyond the grave by the ghostly voice of his mother. Along with local bobby Harry the Helmet, ageing aquatic team the Boomerville Babes, eccentric artist Lucinda Gray, and heartthrob Finbar Murphy, they gather in Ireland and the fun begins. But murder is in the air and there’s mischief afoot. Will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?
Set in the beautiful Irish countryside, ‘Boomerville at Ballymegille’ is a heart-warming story of friendship, fears and new beginnings.
Witty, whimsical, and wonderful. This is the follow up to The Best Boonerville Hotel. However, you don’t need to have read the first book to enjoy this one I think the author did a good job of catching you up in the beginning of the book. This time Jo and Hattie are expanding their hotel business and opening a hotel in Ireland. The Boomerville Hotels cater to people of a certain age. In this book we are also introduced to a new cast of colorful characters visiting the hotel. The overall tone of the book is uplifting and humorous, but there is some heavier subject matter woven in. We meet Mellisa who has just left her abusive husband of many years and Bill who has had a toxic relationship with his parents with who he still lives. Both these subjects were handled gently and thoughtfully in a hopeful manner. There is also a generous dose of adorable furry friends in this book. This book is an absolute delight a true pick me up.
*** Big thank you to Books Go Social for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***
