Boomerville is back!
Join Hattie and Jo as they head to Southern Ireland to open Boomerville Manor, a holiday retreat for guests of ‘a certain age’. There’s Irish craic and shenanigans aplenty for the colourful cast of characters as everyone gathers for the grand opening.
Meet Melissa, an ex-cabaret singer running from her abusive husband, and Bill, a bachelor bullied from beyond the grave by the ghostly voice of his mother. Along with local bobby Harry the Helmet, ageing aquatic team the Boomerville Babes, eccentric artist Lucinda Gray, and heartthrob Finbar Murphy, they gather in Ireland and the fun begins. But murder is in the air and there’s mischief afoot. Will the residents get more than they bargained for at Boomerville?
Set in the beautiful Irish countryside, ‘Boomerville at Ballymegille’ is a heart-warming story of friendship, fears and new beginnings.
If you are looking to escape into a good book, this one is perfect. There is an enticing mix of vivid, relatable characters and an absorbing plot that immerses you into the world of Hattie and Jo. Humour and poignancy add realism into an enjoyable book which is hard to put down.
Jo needs a new project and opens a new Boomerville establishment in Ireland. There’s a host of new characters to meet with a myriad of life issues to face and overcome. Insightful writing introduces serious themes but deals with them positively keeping the spirit of the story intact.
The story reads well as a standalone but is a sequel to The Best Boomerville Hotel, which is on my list to read. Characterised by independent, intelligent older female characters, this story has something to offer everyone regardless of age.
