The Mariposa Hotel


About the book: Welcome to Tangerine Street

Tangerine Street is a must-see tourist stop with a colorful mix of one-of-a-kind boutiques, unique restaurants, eclectic museums, quaint bookstores, and exclusive bed-and-breakfasts. The Mariposa Hotel, a new resort, has revitalized Seashell Beach, bringing new life to the sleepy beach town. In the charming gardens of the hotel sits a three-hundred-year-old wishing well transported from Mexico. One toss of the coin, a sincere wish, and lives are changed forever… 

My review: I really enjoy reading these Tangerine Street romances. The books are written by some amazing authors. They are filled with three different contemporary romances written by some of my very favorite authors. I love the way that Julie Wright, Melanie Jacobson and Heather B Moore write. I love that these books all have a commonality, this one is the Mariposa Hotel and it's famous fountain. It's kind of fun when the characters from each of the stories show up in the other stories too!

Ghost of 913 is a cute story. I love the main character Mari. She's a housekeeper in the hotel and she is assigned to clean room 913. But it's kind of funny that when she goes into the room, everything seems to be in order. The bed is properly made, the shampoo and conditioner is how it's supposed to be. It's almost as if no one has been staying there. But Mari is good at finding even the smallest thing out of place and as she cleans the room she starts to notice very small things that aren't quite right. The pillows, for example, are not quite how she left them. Eventually through a twist of fate, Mari ends up meeting Grant, and she isn't quite sure what to think of him. He tells her that his job is "something like a cop," he's mysterious and amazing and Mari finds herself falling for him. But can she really trust him. Such a cute story!

In Butterfly Kisses, we find Ridley Lansing a professional photographer showing up to The Mariposa to capture the surfing competition going on in the ocean behind the hotel. As he is going through the hotel, his friend Brent catches him and asks for help during the crazy time when the hotel's concierge is home with his sick family. That's how he meets Brook, a plastic surgeon who spends a good chunk of her time working on her charity to help kids in foreign countries with cleft palate, she also happens to be a bit obsessed with the actor Tom Hiddleston. I loved the flirting that went back and forth between the two about Tom Hiddleston, so cute and fun. I liked Brook and how hard she worked to find more doctors willing to help out with her cause. I liked Ridley, he is such a cute, romantic leading man. I was hoping for a cute outcome for both of these great characters!

Dreams Come True is about Raegan Stone. As the hotel events coordinator, she's used to some crazy requests, so it's really no surprise when Hollywood producer KC Wood's assistant has some pretty nitpicky requests for him, including room in the suite for her and a hush hush attitude about it. I loved the part in this book when Raegan walks out on KC Wood because she has found out who she is and she isn't sure she likes what he stands for. But it's all a big misunderstanding. Will she be able to see that before KC moves on? This story is super cute, I especially found the part touching where Tiffany is able to talk with her mom.

Make sure to take time to read this great book!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
