Absolutely gorgeous 5* read – Escape to the Hummingbird Hotel by Daisy James

When florist-to-the-stars Abbie Coleman catches a glimpse of her boyfriend through the window of Tiffany’s, she couldn’t be more excited. Keen to share her happiness, she organises a huge surprise party for all their family and friends… except things don’t quite work out as she expected, and instead of planning a flower-filled wedding, she finds herself single, and fired from a job she loves.

Desperate to escape her heartbreak, she jets off to her aunt’s quirky Hummingbird Hotel on the gorgeous island of Corfu. Little did she know that instead of spending her time lounging by the pool, drinking cocktails, and soaking up the sun, she’d be stepping into the role of the island’s newest hotelier.

The arrival of unexpected guests sends Abbie into a tailspin of panic, and she’s forced to turn to snippy, but charismatic, vineyard owner-turned-chef, Nikos Angelopoulos, for help. Why does the kitchen fill with smoke whenever she makes coffee? Why is there a naked man swimming in the pool? And why do the hotel’s toiletries turn their guests’ hair pink?

Despite all the chaos, the Hummingbird Hotel works its magic on Abbie, and she finds herself with a decision to make. Will she return home to the drizzly grey skies of London? Or will she take a leap of faith and embrace the new opportunities that little corner of paradise has to offer, and maybe, just maybe, discover a sprinkle of romance along the way?

My Review:

This is the story of Abbie Coleman who finds her dreams crashed
When what she’d assumed would happen are all completely smashed.
Instead of getting engaged she discovers herself instead
Without a boyfriend or a job - and, to top it all, that her aunt is dead.

All isn’t lost, however, as her aunt has left a will
Along with lots of other life changing surprises still!
It seems she owned and ran the Hummingbird Hotel so
To visit Corfu is where Abbie decides she has to go.

On Corfu, Abbie finds this Hotel that it seems
Is not quite as she’d thought in her dreams
Not only that but guests are shortly due
Just what is Abbie going to do?

With a fantastic community and new friends to make
Abbie has lots of decisions to take
The warmth of the sun, the community vibes, too
Will leave her with a quandary about what she should do.

There’s added mystery as a guest’s hair turns pink
What’s going on? What should she think?
The characters are great, some I’ve read about before
And now I can’t wait to read about this Hotel some more!

This author writes the types of books I just can’t wait to read.
Ones that are always full of fun, love and romance - just what I need!
I have no hesitation in highly recommending this to you
And thank the publishers for my copy enabling me to write this, my honest review.

About Daisy James

Daisy James loves writing stories with strong heroines and swift-flowing plotlines. She especially likes to create sunshine-filled settings in exotic locations – the Caribbean, Tuscany, Cornwall, Provence – so she can spend her time envisioning her characters enjoying the fabulous scenery and sampling the local food and drink.

When not scribbling away in her peppermint-and-green summerhouse (garden shed), she spends her time sifting flour and sprinkling sugar and edible glitter. She loves gossiping with friends over a glass of something fizzy or indulging in a spot of afternoon tea – china plates and teacups are a must.

Daisy would love to hear from readers via her Facebook page or you can follow her on Twitter @daisyjamesbooks or on Instagram @booksdaisyjames.
