3.3 Out Of 5 STARS for Hotel Ruby by Suzanne Young

Creepy Hotel Setting

Grief

 

With Audio Performed by Julia Whelan

 

 


๏ ๏ ๏ My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏

 

Most of the reviews say this is just like Hotel California...the song...so I read the lyrics...and...yeah, I totally see that. It's almost as if the Author just made up a story, albeit a YA one, to go along with those lyrics. I think if you go into this knowing it's more or less a story to go with that song...you might not be so disappointed. Whether or not that was the Author's intention is unknown to me or irrelevant at any least.

 

For the most part, it reads like a super quick little tale of a haunted hotel with grief-stricken teens and a few splashes of overly dramatic romance, and for me, it fell somewhere in the middle of terrific and terrible.

Loslassen und neu anfangen gehen oft Hand in Hand
Das kleine Hotel in der Provence - Marion Stieglitz

Fee erzählt vom Inhalt:

Lilly, die erst ihren Wohnsitz von Freiburg nach Rostock verlegt hat, wird zum ungünstigsten Zeitpunkt von ihrem Freund Jan darüber informiert, dass er eine andere gefunden hat. Wegen ihm ist sie ja erst hierher gezogen und als Hochzeitsfotografin ist sie auch schon sehr gut ausgebucht. Sie möchte ihr Leben noch mal von Grund auf ändern und zieht in die Provence, wo auch ihre Kusine schon wohnt und möchte ein Hotel für Singlefrauen eröffnen. Beim Kaufen der Möbel hilft ihr Olivier.

 

Fees Meinung: Charaktere:

Ich konnte mir alle Charaktere gut vorstellen und vor allem Lilly und Paula waren meine Lieblingsfiguren. In Lilly konnte ich mich gut einfühlen und konnte mir auch gut vorstellen, dass sie ein zweites Mal einen Neuanfang wagt. Olivier fand ich von Beginn an nicht wirklich passend für sie, aber ich dachte, wer weiß, was die Autorin da noch auf Lager hat. Auch Oliviers Tante, die eine wichtige Rolle in dem Roman gespielt hat, war mir sehr sympathisch. Lokalkolorit: Es hätte doch mehr Urlaubsfeeling sein können. Aber für mein Kopfkino hat es gereicht und so fühlte ich mich von der provenzalischen Sonne gewärmt. Die Möbelgeschäfte konnte ich mir gut vorstellen und auch das Haus. In dieses Haus und den Garten hab ich mich auch von Anfang an verliebt, auch wenn klar war, dass man da viel renovieren durfte. Ich war erstaunt, dass der Klempner so schnell da war, da ich ja von Peter Mayles Bücher anderes gewohnt bin. Sowieso war das Haus megaschnell renoviert. Liebesroman/Schreibstil: Ob plausibel oder nicht, ist hierbei egal, weil es ratzfatz ausgelesen war und ich es sehr schade fand, dass das Buch schon zu Ende war. Die Autorin hat einen Schreibstil, der mir sehr gut gefällt und bei dem man nicht mit lesen aufhören möchte. Die Geschichte war spannend und nicht völlig vorhersehbar, es gab eine schöne Liebesgeschichte und eine Braut, die glücklich ist, dass sie nicht geheiratet hat. Es hatte genau die richtige Mischung zwischen Romantik und Liebe. Cover: Das Cover gefiel mir gleich sehr gut und ist wunderschön romantisch. Mit den Fensterläden und dem Lavendel, der unbedingt zu einem Provence-Roman dazugehört. Ich liebe Lavendel. Der Geruch ist schon so herrlich. Dazu noch die Etagere mit den Macarons. mjammi.

 

Mein – Lesezeichenfees – Fazit:

Das Buch war so schnell ausgelesen, dass man gleichzeitig nebenher hätte baden können, ohne zu bemerken, dass das Wasser zu kalt wird. Es war spannend, nicht alles vorhersehbar und vor allem die Romantik und Liebe war perfekt inszeniert. Natürlich gab es auch Urlaubsfeeling und teilweise befand man sich durch das Kopfkino wirklich in der Provence. Mir gefällt besonders der Schreibstil von Marion Stieglitz, weil die Charaktere vorstellbar und größtenteils sympathisch sind. Wenn ich könnte, würde ich 10 Sterne geben und ich werde sicher weitere Bücher der Autorin lesen.

Al Capone at the Blanche Hotel
Al Capone at the Blanche Hotel - Linda Bennett Pennell
In June of 1930 Al Capone and several of his men check in to the out-of-the-way Blanche Hotel in Lake City Florida and stay for almost two weeks.  There is almost no mention of the stay or what they did there for that long.  In 2011, Liz Reams, researcher of American Crime and new professor comes across this tidbit of information about her favorite bad boy for a new class syllabus she is working on.  Liz dives into the research, but can't find much information about Capone at the time.  Instead, she finds a series of crimes involving the KKK, the newspaper editor and the Sheriff that rocked Lake City during the same time as Capone's stay.  The story of one boy, Zeke, has Liz especially interested.  However, she can't seem to find any evidence of Capone's involvement; and while Liz is immersed in her studies of the past, her present also seems to be falling apart.
 
I was hooked on this story from the introduction, where boys Zeke and Jack watch a body go down a sinkhole and sets off a chain of events that will change their lives.  Capone is a historical figure that we all know.  His violent reign has always been viewed with a surrounding glamour.  Liz's character reflects this feeling as well and Liz often looks for a bad boy in her personal life as well.  Through her research, we are shown the greater impact of Capone's actions as his presence changes the lives of innocent residents of Lake City.  The historical characters served as a lens for the time period.  Meg, who worked at the Blanche, Jack and Zeke, kids who witnessed the crimes, DeWitt, the officer who uncovered the crimes and Jack and Zeke's fathers displayed the wide range of consequences for an era filled with instability, hate and uncertainty.  The writing made me feel very attached to these characters and made the transition between time periods easy as each chapter hopped between the 1930's and 2000's.  Short chapters and the suspense of Capone's involvement made this book fly by.  Overall, a fun, fast-paced historical crime novel.
 
This book was received for free in return for an honest review.

3 Economical Ways to Renovate Dull-looking Hotel Room Interiors

Suppose, you are planning a getaway to Dubai, you have booked the air tickets, however, the accommodation arrangements are yet to be made. So, what would you do to find prime-quality accommodation? Probably, conduct a hotel search on the internet. Isn’t it? While doing the search, there are mostly two things that a traveller looks for, comfort and luxury. Any hotel that promises the benefits of both worlds, price and quality will be the traveller’s first choice. Many times, hoteliers avoid transforming the traditional interiors into a fascinating one mainly because of the investment involved. However, giving that perfect attractive look to the hotel rooms does not always ask for high costs. There is always a cheaper way of doing things that one is not aware of.

Here, we have compiled a list of economical ways that will help you to change the hotel room interior in a more fashionable and modern manner:

 

Consider Linens: After a long journey, every traveller looks forward to resting time. The quality of linens used in bedrooms can clearly define the quality of hotel services that you offer. Replace the old blankets with fresh and prominent colour palettes. If you are working on a tighter budget, settle with neutral shades, or white duvets. White is a safe colour that illuminates the room. Never be afraid to go an extra step in taking care of your guests.


Reorganize the Room Layout: Many hoteliers are least bothered to add a touch of modernity to the old room layouts. However, this is not the right approach. What attracts the lodgers is always a well-arranged furniture set-up across the room. The moment a guest enters the stay room, he must feel welcomed. Instead of clubbing all furniture in all corner, spread them out, give the room a spacious look. Putting contrasting pieces of furniture against each other is another creative idea. In case, you get stuck at any stage, connect with hotel interior design companies in Dubai or interior design companies in Dubai.

 

Opt for Modern-Styled Furniture: There is a traditional concept that majority of hotels stick by, a bed, a chair/a couch, a desk, and two nightstands. Generally, a guest checks-in to seek comfort and peace from travel or work. If a hotel is failing to meet he guests’ requirements, then it is failing as a business. It is always better to choose comfort over elegance or fanciness. Designers at the interior design companies in Dubai suggest using naturally manufactured furniture. Also, there is no harm in mixing two different shades or styles together. Place chairs that exhibit a right mix of functionality and fascination.

 

Aren’t these great ways to renovate the old-style hotel rooms? Do you have any other idea? Tell us in the comment box. For any assistance or query, feel free to connect with our experts from hotel interior design companies in Dubai.
