The Best Boomerville Hotel by Caroline James
PUB DATE: 13 March2018 | PAGES: 320est
Let the shenanigans begin at the Boomerville hotel …

Jo Docherty and Hattie Contaldo have a vision – a holiday retreat in the heart of the Lake District exclusively for guests of ‘a certain age’ wishing to stimulate both mind and body with new creative experiences. One hotel refurbishment later and the Best Boomerville Hotel is open for business!
Perhaps not surprisingly Boomerville attracts more than it’s fair share of eccentric clientele: there’s fun loving Sir Henry Mulberry and his brother Hugo; Lucinda Brown, an impoverished artist with more ego than talent; Andy Mack, a charming Porsche-driving James Bond lookalike, as well as Kate Simmons, a woman who made her fortune from an internet dating agency but still hasn’t found ‘the One’ herself.
With such an array of colourful individuals there’s bound to be laughs aplenty, but could there be tears and heartbreak too and will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?

‘Britain’s answer to the Best Marigold Hotel! Book me in for Sharing with the Shaman and Clairvoyance in mid-life – this book is fabulous!’ - Nikki Ashton, Amazon best-selling author

Movie Review: Paddington 2

Paddington 2

I loved the first Paddington movie, but I wasn't sure if Paddington 2 was going to be good. Thankfully, it was great and I loved it even more!

This time, Paddington is looking for a job to earn money and buy his aunt a beautiful London book. It's not as easy as it seems, and when someone steals the book, the police think it was Paddington.

Paddington being as charming as always seems to find a way to make everything ok again, making new interesting friends again and people realizing how amazing he is. I loved to see the old characters and the new ones (Hugh Grant), eccentric but funny.

Overall, you know I love everything Paddington but I'm glad this second movie was as great as the first, maintaining the true essence of this heartwarming bear.

Best books I read in 2017 & Reading Challenge 2018

Ok, so I know it's a bit late to wish you a Happy New Year but I've been so busy lately working, getting married, trying to get used to living abroad...

Anyway, I like having goals and resolutions, that's why I always have a goal to read a number of books. Sometimes I read more, but the last couple of years not only I have failed miserably, but also I've been reading less a less.

Why? I don't know, I guess it was life. 2017 I only read 14 books, although I must say I tried to read more but didn't like them so DNFs them. I just don't want to waste precious time reading a book I don't like. Only 14 books was very low if I compare it to a few years ago, but also I feel like I'm enjoying more the books I read.

The best books I read in 2017

Movie Review: The Healer

The Healer

Alec's life is a mess, so when an uncle shows up accepting to pay all his debts with the condition that he goes to live in a little town Canada for a year, it doesn't sound too bad. But in that little town he will discover he has the gift to heal people, although he isn't ready to have that responsibility.

Alec was stubborn but had his (very sad) reasons, and I really liked Cecilia's characters, because she's a vet and lives in my dream house!! I liked how Alec changed, finally opened his heart to try to help a teenager with cancer. It was heart warming, it makes you remember that even if you feel like your life is shit, you can do better and even help other people. It left me feeling positive about life.

The Healer is a very sweet movie, perfect for those moments when you want to watch something light and with a happy ending. All profits for this film go to charity for children's cancer care, so what are you waiting for?
