#BookReview: Queenie Malone's Paradise Hotel by @ruthmariehogan






Synopsis: From the bestselling author of The Keeper of Lost Things and The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes - a novel of mothers and daughters, families and secrets and the astonishing power of friendship.

Tilly was a bright, outgoing little girl who liked playing with ghosts and matches. She loved fizzy drinks, swear words, fish fingers and Catholic churches, but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone's Magnificent Paradise Hotel with its endearing and loving family of misfits - staff and guests alike.

But Tilly's childhood was shattered when her mother sent her away from the only home she'd ever loved to boarding school with little explanation and no warning. Now, Tilda has grown into an independent woman still damaged by her mother's unaccountable cruelty. Wary of people, her only friend is her dog, Eli. But when her mother dies, Tilda goes back to Brighton and with the help of her beloved Queenie sets about unraveling the mystery of her exile from The Paradise Hotel and discovers that her mother was not the woman she thought she knew at all ... Mothers and daughters ... their story can be complicated ... it can also turn out to have a happy ending.

My Review: First off I want to let you know that the dog in this story is perfectly fine.  I don't know about you but I can not stand when animals are hurt.  The cover to this story is so gorgeous. The mother and daughter relationship felt so real and I was turning the pages until I got to the end.  I loved this stories flow and the story was just so beautiful. 




Go Into This One Knowing: Dog is fine though entire story!
