"Long Weekend" by Veronica Henry is the book that can't be specified into one genre, because inside you'll find people and their stories, both sad and funny, that can be found in each and every hotel.
The book main characters are Claire Marlowe and her partner Luca Ramsay who own the Townhouse by the Sea, a hotel in Pennfleet, Cornwall.
They two are preparing for a long weekend full of work because several younger guests together with some other quests will make their weekend a long one...
After some introduction about these two, reader will meet other characters: Laura and Dan who are on their first weekend and soon will uncover some family secrets, Nick and his party who will change lot of destinies after the weekend, Assistant Manager Angelica who works at the hotel, the Parfitts, Trevor and Monique, who are sleeping partners in the hotel, and some more.
All of them are different people in terms of their characteristics and life paths for which author managed to interest us giving them depth with each page.
We will learn that each and any of them have some problem, either with disease, depression, infidelity or some secret, that makes the whole atmosphere in hotel interesting for research and finding out the details.
"Long Weekend" is sometimes sad, more often humoristic but certainly engaging book that is easily read due to author's literary style making reader to feel like she/he is, or would like to be, also guest of this unusual hotel.
Due to that, I can recommend you to visit hotel in Cornwall, because you'll see it's a place where people might want to stay.
