I am delighted to share my review today for Sunshine Over Bluebell Cliff by Della Galton, this is a gorgeous summer read and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.
Here is what it is all about…
Bluebell Cliff Hotel is a place to make your dreams come true…
Clara King is left in sole charge of a fabulous new clifftop hotel for the summer.
The owner has barely left the country when Clara realises that someone is hell-bent on putting the Bluebell Cliff Hotel out of business.
It becomes a race against time to hunt down the sneaky saboteur before they succeed in bringing the hotel to its knees.
With her dream job under threat and her personal life in chaos, Clara discovers that, when what you love the most is in danger, it can bring out the very best in you.

The synopsis for this book gives a very nice idea as to what this story is about. Clara is the main focus of the story and she takes over running the hotel when its owner has to fly off to Australia for a family emergency.
The staff are like a big family and their loyalty is soon seen as random events start to occur. These events could threaten the reputation of the hotel, a hotel that is built on dreams and offers a vast array of different events and functions.
What I really liked about this book where the descriptions of the area and the way the author set the scene. Clara has the extra responsibility of running a hotel, she also has her own family problems to deal with and a potential rival hotel that may cause problems. Dealing with what she can she goes to see the owner of the rival hotel, not the best of meetings, the second one wasn’t much better either.
This story has a few threads woven into it, the family problems, the personal problems, a saboteur and all through this the staff and Clara have to keep things running, “the show must go on” and all that. With these various threads, there is little time for relationships, but there is a tentative one.
This was such a good read and I devoured it in one sitting, it was just one of those books that I quite happily lost myself in for a few hours and it is one I would definitively recommend.
