I recently read, HOTEL RUBY by Suzanne Young and I didn't check out until I finished this creepy, delightful book. Take a look:
Stay tonight. Stay forever.
When Audrey Casella arrives for an unplanned stay at the grand Hotel Ruby, she’s grateful for the detour. 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 new people she’s met, the more her curiosity grows. She’s torn in different directions—the pull of her past with its overwhelming loss, the promise of a future that holds little joy, and an in-between life in a place that is so much more than it seems…
Welcome to the Ruby.
What a roller coaster this book was! It was a thrilling ride that kept me guessing and made me grip the the book until it was over. I had no idea where this book was heading.
The Hotel Ruby was filled with secrets. When a hotel so beautiful, luxurious and glamorous was too good to be true, you're bound to be a bit suspicious. The Hotel Ruby seems to have a mind of her own. She makes sure she has everyone, staff and guests, right where she wants them. Throughout the novel, Audrey learns about the tragedy that has filled the grand hotel. A horrible fire broke out when the hotel was first built, killing many of the staff and guests in the ballroom. It is rumored that ghosts haunt the hotel. Whether that's fact or fiction, you will have to find out for yourself.
HOTEL RUBY was a perfect blend of mystery, suspense, romance and may or may not be a horror book. This perfect mix made it hard to put down. The book is fast-paced and a quick read. I wouldn't be surprised if many of you read it in one sitting. HOTEL RUBY will make sure you stay in that world forever.
I highly recommend HOTEL RUBY to anyone who wants a thrilling quick read. Fans of The Twilight Zone will devour this book.
