I would recommend this book to people who love sweet romance! It's about a 30 year old female who is divorced and learning to trust men again. I think because it is short story there are no misunderstanding. It is more to do with mistrust on her side after how her ex husband treated her. The author leaves it hanging at the end. So you wonder do they have a happy ever after or is there trouble brewing up in the horizon. Can't wait to find out what happens next.
I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
I have not read the print version so I have nothing to compare. I listen more than I read now.
Henry the donut guy because he is so lovable.
The former owner's wife.
This was a funny story that made me smile the entire I was listening to it. I got this book via audiobook boom.
"A slice of the life of a hotel clerk"
Short, funny, and leaves you wanting the next one. The characters are believable and clearly depicted. The story flows well, but is divided into "episodes" rather than chapters, which I personally found odd. Overall it was fun and worth reading.
AH is a skilled audio performer who is able to bring the characters to life and keep them well differentiated in voice.

"A new interesting beginning!"
Romantic, although its the beginning of the story, and the characters are very sweet and keep the interest up to the last page. It does a great job of getting you interested in the next book in the series.
No comparison, every book is unique and I really liked this very much.
I haven't listened to Angie Hickman performances it was the first one and I really liked her voice and the way she gives life to the characters.
Extreme reaction no, but I laughed a lot. I believe that extreme reactions are about to come in the next one....
I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read this book. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts opinions and ratings are my own. I was under no obligation to give positive feedback.
Cute little story. I liked the characters and the fun situations the author put in the story.
"You'll Want To Check Out This Hotel"
You know things are gonna be tough when you work at a hotel named Roche. Newly single Jane Seymour begins her new job as the night shift clerk, not a glamorous job to say the least, but it pays the bills.
Jane finds herself working with the oddest bunch of coworkers ever, Jerry’s a jack of all trades who resembles a sasquatch and fellow clerk Aquanetta who’s never heard the words “personal space”. Her shift gets even more interesting when a local baker and resident hot guy Henry, drops off his daily batch donuts. Jane tries not to lose her head… Kinda like her Tudor predecessor. A misadventure in room 12 means an upswing in business and hilarity ensues.
The Roche Hotel Season One is filled with humor, mystery, romance and a twinge of heartbreak. It’s amazing you can fit all that into an hour and nineteen minutes! Angie Hickman narrates and does a wonderful job in the fast-paced production.
I’m looking forward to Season Two. This audiobook was received in exchange for an unbiased review!
"Sweet, funny story"
I enjoyed these episodes of the goings on at the Roche hotel and the developing romance between Jane and Henry. The stories are warm, funny, and a little sexy. I loved the ongoing attempt by the elderly prior owner to "cover" the statue's nasty bits. This is the beginning of a series, so you don't get the end of the story in this book, and it definitely left me wanting to listen to season 2.
The audiobook delivery was perfectly paced and well-voiced. Very enjoyable, and short enough to listen to in a single sitting.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
"great short listen"
I love Angie Hickman's narration! I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher
I thoroughly enjoyed this sweet, romantic comedy, my only complaint is that it is way too short.
Mysti Parker writes very well and Angie Hickman does a great job narrating the story.
The characters are fun and well developed; the conversation is snappy and believable, there is nothing missing from this story - romance, a little mystery and humor, it all leaves you with the desire to hear more.
"entertaining short read"
I was gifted this audio ARC from the author for a honest and unbiased review.
First of all cudos to Angie Hickman for her fabulous reading of the story. She has a fine range of voices.
Jane Seymour is a 33 year old divorcee
Who lands a job at The Roche Hotel as a night clerk.
On her first night Jane meets Henry Hermann who gives her a donut and the attraction begins.
Seeing this is a short book I will say no more other than there are a lot of lol times.
I am interested in seeing where this Novella leads, hopefully to a full blown series.
I truly enjoyed listening to this book, Mysti Parker did a great job with this story and Angie Hickman did a great job bringing the words to life. I highly recommend listening to this book, you won't be disappointed
