The death of a woman at Boston’s Seafarer Hotel affects all the people staying there. The hotel manager, Jean-Paul Savant, regrets moving from France to take on a new responsibility; he should have stayed in Paris with Marie and their new baby, Isabella, rather than moving them to a new country. Carol O’Dell came to the Seafarer to relive old memories and perhaps make new ones. She’s meeting an old classmate for dinner and hopes there are still sparks. Will this be a night of new beginnings? Gwen has surprised her fiancé, Jason, with a weekend away at the Seafarer for his birthday. Though their relationship is sometimes rocky, a romantic weekend is the perfect opportunity for Jason to finally open up to her, before it’s too late. Riley and Tom are planning their wedding; Tom’s mother, involved in every little detail, has booked a tasting at the Seafarer. They arrive at the appointment willing to give the hotel and its amenities a try, until the woman in the pretty yellow dress falls from a balcony to the patio, right outside their dining room window.
VERDICT Book a room and be sure to pack this enticing summertime read by Francis (The Summer Sail). Readers who enjoy books by Mary Kay Andrews and Fannie Flagg will want to know what happens next at the Seafarer.
