Book Review: Suite Scarlett
Book 1 in Scarlett series
AUTHOR: Maureen Johnson
GENRE: Realistic Fiction
PREMISE: Scarlett helps her family run a hotel during the summer and gets put in charge of helping a eccentric guest...
MY REVIEW: I'm slowly but surely getting through all the Maureen Johnson books. What I do appreciate about this author is that you never know quite what you'll get with her. Sometimes she'll do contemporary romance like this one, then she'll switch it up with a urban fantasy thing like the Shades of London series. The only thing that's consistent is her charming characters and writing style.
Suite Scarlett is the contemporary side of Johnson. It's cute and quirky like most of Johnson's contemporary books. I honestly don't have much to say about it beyond that I liked it and it's an enjoyable read. If you're looking for something a little juicier though...I'd go elsewhere.
So not the hardest read around. But if you're in the mood for a light and fluffy book about a girl with a quirky life...this is for you.
WHO SHOULD READ: Maureen Johnson fans, Suite Life of Zack and Cody fans
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five hotels
