I love the idea of bed and breakfasts. So many quirky strangers all together, enjoying breakfast or happy hour, talking about whatever quirky strangers talk about. Heartbreak Hotel by Deborah Moggach is everything I have ever imagined about a bed and breakfast, and more. The intimacy, the ambiance.
Retired actor, Buffy has moved from fast-paced London to a small town in Wales to run a bed and breakfast left to him by a close friend or ex-lover. Potato, potato. The shabby Myrtle House is not exactly what he pictured, out in the middle of nowhere, but Buffy's eccentric personality attracts quite the group of misfits. Great fun is had by all, especially the reader. I enjoyed being in Buffy's company, and watching unlikely couples get together. A nice and relaxing read, which was exactly what I needed.
