Synopsis from Macmillan Publishers:

One of the few bright lights in Rachel Beck’s life is her job at a Miami Beach luxury hotel—until she’s fired for something she didn’t do. As a single mom, Rachel knows she needs stability, and fast. On impulse, Rachel inquires about a position at a brewery hotel on a tiny island in Lake Erie called Kelleys Island. When she’s offered the job, not even the grumpy voice on the line can dissuade her from packing up her whole life and making the move.

What she finds on Kelleys Island is Mason, a handsome, reclusive 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 life—from the ground up.

Trish Doller’s The Suite Spot is about taking a chance on a new life and a new love.

My Experience: I started reading The Suite Spot on 3/26/2022 and finished it on 3/31/2022. Fantastic read! I don’t read too many romantic contemporary but I should because I love how this book got me smiling often. I enjoyed following Rachel’s view. Her thoughts sounded real and relatable. I loved all of the characters in this book. The people on the island were so welcoming and nice. The diversity was great. Mason, 39, was an interesting character. The beer brewery was a nice touch. I haven’t read of it before so it was refreshing. Now I want to try some beers even though I don’t really drink beer! The romance was sweet and cute and slow burning. Their friends, Avery and her husband were great and hilarious. I enjoyed the glimpse into their book club. I loved that Anna and Keane appeared in this story too.

This book started with Rachel, 28, Anna’s sister, as she waited with her 3 year old daughter, Maisie for her ex-boyfriend, Brian, to come pick Maisie up for their weekend get together. She’s been waiting around for Brian to grow up because he put his love for his car improvements and video games above saving money for their family or even marriage. She worked at a luxury hotel in Florida as a Reception Manager on the night shift. One customer was known for groping and one night while working he did that and she swore at him so she got fired. A new job was referred to her but it’s located in a secluded island in Ohio. Uprooted and moved, she decided it could be good for her. So she moved out of her mom’s house with her daughter and accepted the job offer. At first it was nerve racking but as time went on she loved the change in environment and people. Every chapter started with a foreign word and its definition in English. The story was organized by months starting April and ending in November.

The Suite Spot was well written and a fast paced read! Definitely a page turner and often I couldn’t put it down. Humor and new love in books, this series have won me over. Maisie was a cute toddler and my toddler could absolutely relate to her, even cranky mornings too. Island life sounded great especially with all of the stars and seafoods. It was a surprise that Mason came from an Asian background because his name wasn’t an obvious giveaway. His interest in women who aren’t all bony was another surprise to me. I liked that each book can be read as a standalone even though they are in a series. I’m excited for book 3! I can’t tell where it’s heading but I’m excited for the surprise. I recommend everyone to read this book as well as Float Plan!

I rate it 5 stars!
