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.
I enjoyed Trish Doller’s last book The Float Plan a lot, so this newest book had some pretty big shoes to fill. I’m happy to say that The Suite Spot exceeded my expectations in all the best ways!
I loved the small town feel of this book, and the close friendships that Rachel made in her new home. I loved the sense of adventure in picking up one’s life and heading into an unknown situation. Rachel and Mason’s friendship and blossoming romance was a joy to watch, as Mason is slowly healed and sees himself embarking on a similar adventure. The only thing I wanted was more! I adored these two characters, and could’ve read much more about them. I loved the people of Kelley’s Island, and would love to read more about them.
This was my favorite of Trish Doller’s books so far, and I can only hope she keeps writing inspiring and fun romances like this one!
Thank you to St Martin’s Griffin for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
