Hotel Ruby


24465518.jpgIf you’re looking for a light, but still creepy, ghost story with a dash of romance mixed in – then Hotel Ruby is for you.

Best-selling author Suzanne Young has penned a ghost story/mystery about Audrey Casella, who when arrives for an unplanned stay at the grand Hotel Ruby.  Just months after their mother’s death, Audrey and her brother, Daniel, are on their way to live with their grandmother, dumped on the doorstep of a DNA-matched stranger because their father is drowning in his grief.

Audrey and her family only plan to stay the night, but life in the Ruby can be intoxicating, extending their stay as it provides endless distractions—including handsome guest Elias Lange, who sends Audrey’s pulse racing. However, the hotel proves to be as strange as it is beautiful. Nightly fancy affairs in the ballroom are invitation only, and Audrey seems to be the one guest who doesn’t have an invite. Instead, she joins the hotel staff on the rooftop, catching whispers about the hotel’s dark past.

The more Audrey learns about the weird guests and staff at the Ruby, the more confused she gets. But will she be pulled into the mystery herself, or will she sit back and enjoy the creepy fun until it is time to leave the Ruby?

This novel is entertaining and the reader will be intrigued to uncover the mysteries of the Hotel Ruby- but the characters and the dialogue fall a little flat/cheesy. Either way it is a decent and entertaining read as long as you don’t expect too much.
