Oh I love Vanessa Greene and her books. This short story didnt fail to deliver either, I loved Cally, the main character. She has abandoned her plans to train as a midwife in order to look after her Dad. She works at the Seafront Hotel and just seems a generally all round lovely girl. I enjoyed getting to know her character and cheering her on to be happy.

This story is short, only 48 pages so can be read easily and quickly. I am hoping it will be continued in her new book being released in the autumn. I can't wait to see what happens next.

This is an exclusive short story by up and coming author Vanessa Greene only available on kindle. It tells the story of Cally who once dreamt about being a midwife, but cut short her training to come home to look after her dad and gets a job as a receptionist in a seafront hotel.

She makes friends with one of the chambermaids, Liliana and also catches the eye of the head chef Anton. Perhaps her life might be going to change. Cally has caught someone else's eye as well and along with the rather annoying guests the two friends meet in one of the hotel rooms to catch up on the gossip. That is until Cally looks to become the gossip herself.

If you want a taste of Vanessa Greene's writing then this is a good way to start. It is a relatively short story, less than 60 pages but it gets across everything in that time and gives you a warm fluffy feeling. Which sometimes all you need from a book!

A charming little tale, full of fun laughter and love also contains some heartache, what else? The location is great sun, sea and rojita's in England. Visitors coming and gong from exotic locations, the heroine follows her chosen path, with company along the way, warm hearted look at life read on fellow novelists.

Simple story. If you are a train commuter could almost be read in one journey. Don't bother to take on a plane! Probably more suited to a women's magazine but pleasant enough.

Relaxing gentle story about some hotel staff and how they get to know each other, as they progressing their lives. Takes about twenty minutes to read.

Another feel good story, just felt it ended a little abruptly. Would prefer longer stories please. Brilliant author though, thank you.
