"Summertown Readers" are aimed at young adults/adults studying business English or using English at work. The storylines offer intrigue, murder and mystery to capture the reader and encourage reading for pleasure. Each reader is supported by an audio CD and comes with a unit glossary. A holiday hotel outside Tokyo, a pensione in Milan, a country house hotel in the English countryside, this collection of short stories describes the adventures and disasters, funny and frightening, romantic and sad, that everybody has experienced when staying in a hotel.
