A little slow at the beginning but I loved the ending. Can't wait to read the sequel! :D

This book was a delight. Scarlett is a lovely heroine who must deal with the typical issues surrounding a romantic relationship but she also has the added dramas that life in a hotel and the unpredictable Mrs Amberson provide. I absolutely adored all of the Martin children, particularly Spencer who is a wonderfully sweet older brother. Johnson's quirky sense of humour is evident throughout the novel, but she deftly intertwines it with real moments of insight that make the novel thoroughly enjoyable. A very sweet novel whose sequel I will be hunting down shortly.
