This romantic comedy/drama/mystery/adventure was more than a fun romp. The author's wicked sense of humor elevated an already interesting premise and plot to a new entertainment level. None of the characters seem relegated to one-dimensional status; "oldsters" and their younger chaperones all vied for attention and were equally captivating. In every way, a great read. I look forward to more from this author.
Retired pro-athlete Oliver Pikes has a lot of demons in his life and the past keeps coming up. And one of those happen to be helping his ill brother with his business of tours. The one tour that he got suckered into is for fifty-one seniors in which their tour bus gets a little detoured and stuck in a small mountain town in the middle of nowhere. To make matters worse he has to deal with a stowaway. A approaching snow storm and disappearing seniors, who won't stay at the hotel long enough to be found and be accounted for. He needs help but no one's coming from his brother company. And his problems seem to just keep piling up.
Will he find out who the mysterious woman is? Will they find the missing seniors? And better yet will they ever get out of the mountain town?
The Opposite of Frozen is A Thurston Hotel Novel Book Two. Even though this is book 2 in a 12 book series is it is a standalone book. I questioned reading the second one knowing that I didn’t read the first one. However, It was easy to follow.
I loved the note to readers as it gave some insight as to the background of the book and how she came to write it.
I always love reading Dedications in books and this one was no exception.
So many things I enjoyed about this book. The fact that it was set in Edmonton, CA was unique as many books I have read are not placed in that setting. I loved that the characters in this book were mostly of the elderly population. That made for many comical moments in the book.
The oldsters made you think about being just like that when you are there age. I laughed and got a little weepy but this book was just so worth the read.
The author did a good job with her portion of the series. Kudos Miss O'Hara. I will probably need to look out for other books written by you.
In this case, the couple is stranded in the Thurston due to a snowstorm and they are accompanied by a group of oldsters that add humour to the mix.
