Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Mariposa Hotel!
A Tangerine Street Romance
~A Novel in Three Parts~
Welcome to Tangerine Street
Tangerine Street is a must-see tourist stop with a colorful mix of one-of-a-kind boutiques, unique restaurants, eclectic museums, quaint bookstores, and exclusive bed-and-breakfasts. The Mariposa Hotel, a new resort, has revitalized Seashell Beach, bringing new life to the sleepy beach town. In the charming gardens of the hotel sits a three-hundred-year-old wishing well transported from Mexico. One toss of the coin, a sincere wish, and lives are changed forever…
Part 1: Ghost of 913
Part 2: Butterfly Kisses
Part 3: Dreams Come True
I really enjoyed this “novel in three parts”, and I enjoyed all three parts of this novel. Usually in a novella collection there is at least one story that I don’t care for as much as the others, but that was not the case with The Mariposa Hotel. Each part was well-written and very much kept me engaged and invested in the outcome. The characters were dimensional and developed as much as possible in a reduced word count, and the romances were sweet but full of chemistry. There were some pretty nice kisses, too 😉
Bottom Line: This is a really nice novella set bracketed with clean but electric romances, strong characters, and sweet themes. The setting of Tangerine Street gives a small town feel to the stories, and the oceanside Hotel sweeps readers up in the magic of its fountain. Recommended for anyone looking for a light read who doesn’t want to sacrifice quality.
(I received a copy of this book in exchange for only my honest review.)
Three bestselling contemporary romance authors: Julie Wright, Melanie Jacobson, and Heather B. Moore come together to write A Tangerine Street Romance series.
Julie Wright started her first book when she was fifteen. She’s written over a dozen books since then, is a Whitney Award winner, and feels she’s finally getting the hang of the writing gig. She enjoys speaking to writing groups, youth groups, and schools. She loves reading, eating, writing, hiking, playing on the beach with her kids, and snuggling with her husband to watch movies. Julie’s favorite thing to do is watch her husband make dinner. She hates mayonnaise but has a healthy respect for ice cream.
Melanie Bennett Jacobson is an avid reader, amateur cook, and champion shopper. She consumes astonishing amounts of chocolate, chick flicks, and romance novels. After meeting her husband online, she is now living happily married in Southern California with her growing family and a series of doomed houseplants. Melanie is a former English teacher and a sometime blogger who loves to laugh and make others laugh. In her downtime (ha!), she writes romantic comedies and pines after beautiful shoes.
Heather B. Moore is a USA Today bestselling author of more than a dozen historical novels and thrillers, written under the pen name H.B. Moore. She writes women’s fiction, romance and inspirational nonfiction under Heather B. Moore. This can all be confusing, so her kids just call her Mom. Heather attended Cairo American College in Egypt, the Anglican School of Jerusalem in Israel, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young University in Utah.
