Trish Doller’s The Suite Spot is a charming romance novel about taking a chance on a new life and a new love.
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 received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I have been a fan of Trish Doller and her books since I was introduced to her debut YA in 2012. Since then she has grown so much as a writer and has since taken on the romance world. Her book, Float Plan, was not only loved by me, but by everyone I know that has read it. She touched a lot of hearts with Keane and Anna’s story, and she once again has done it with Mason and Rachel in The Suite Spot.
The Suite Spot is about Rachel, Anna’s sister, and how stuck she is in her life. She is raising her daughter with her ex and working in a job where she is treated poorly by the guests of the hotel, but it’s a job she loves and is great at. But when one guest gets out of control Rachel is left without a job for something she didn’t do. On a whim she applies to be a manger for a brewery hotel in Ohio thinking it is time to stand on her own and have a fresh start. Unfortunately the hotel is not at all what she imagined and neither is the owner Mason. But as time passes Rachel not only gets the hotel going but she gets Mason’s heart going as well. What once felt like a disaster of a risk is quickly becoming the best thing Rachel has ever done for herself and her daughter. Now she just needs to convince everyone in her life, including Maisie’s father, of this.
I seriously loved The Suite Spot with everything I have. I admit I was unsure about Rachel in Float Plan. I found her to be judgey and looked down on Anna and her choices. But getting to know her in this book made me see she wasn’t judging her. She was almost jealous of her. Anna was able to go off and sail the world. She was able to leave ands be free. Rachel instead had to have a steady job because she had a child to take care of. The brewery hotel on sleepy little Kelleys Island, Ohio, was Rachel’s chance to do something different. To have some freedom. It was awesome seeing her bloom as a character. And Mason, oh sweet Mason. He was dealing with so much pain and grief. he had closed himself off so much that he was a shell of a person. Rachel and Maisie were exactly what he needed to open himself back up to life and love and just plain living.
Teh Suite Spot is a book you will not want to put down once you start it. Rachel and Mason are the perfect pairing and little Maisie is just the cutest little thing. Not to mention you will be wanting a beer while you read. Essentially Trish Doller knows just how to hit my romance loving heart and you need to have both Float Plan and The Suite Spot on your TBR!
