From the wildly popular bestselling author of The Keeper of Lost Things comes an uplifting novel of mothers and daughters, families and secrets and the astonishing power of friendship.

She loved fizzy drinks, swear words, fish fingers and Catholic churches, but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone's magnificent Paradise Hotel with its endearing and loving family of misfits.

This was such a sweet novel. Tilda’s story is revealed by looking at her quirky current life and her 7 year old life when her experiences shaped her.
Both sad and funny (I loved Tilly’s voice and misunderstandings) it was truly touching. ( )

Wonderful Book. Lovely how the two timelines between the adult Tilda and the child Tilly intertwine. Interesting, complex and wonderfully flawed people, this is like a masterclass in writing character led fiction. ( )

Synopsis: 'Tilly was a bright, outgoing little girl who liked playing with ghosts and matches. She loved fizzy drinks, swear words, fish fingers and Catholic churches, but most of all she loved living in Brighton in Queenie Malone’s magnificent Paradise Hotel with its endearing and loving family of misfits – staff and guests alike.
But Tilly’s childhood was shattered when her mother sent her away from the only home she’d ever loved to boarding school with little explanation and no warning.
Now, Tilda has grown into an independent woman still damaged by her mother’s unaccountable cruelty. Wary of people, her only friend is her dog, Eli.
But when her mother dies, Tilda goes back to Brighton and with the help of her beloved Queenie sets about unravelling the mystery of her exile from The Paradise Hotel, only to discover that her mother was not the woman she thought she knew at all...'
Review: This was a rather slow-going slice of life book. I did enjoy the fact that the main character sees ghosts, but not much was made of that. Purported to have a happy ending, I was a bit disappointed that the ending was marginally pleasant rather than happy. The last quarter of the book was interesting and intriguing; if the entire book had been like these pages it would have been wonderful. I will say that the writing is beautiful. ( )

I'm ambivalent about this book and I think a lot of it may have to do with the chapters alternating between her childhood and present time. It was hard to keep straight at times and I felt like I didn't get to know many of the quirky characters very well and some of the plot points are still murky. But, I feel the protagonist's story was well-told and the author did a good job showing the difficult life the main character had. ( )

I have loved Ruth Hogans previous books so went into Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel with high hopes. I found the book okay but I didn’t connect with the main character Tilly/Tilda. The storyline dragged in places and I found myself wanting it to hurry along instead of settling into the life and rhythms of the book. I do appreciate the book comes recommended by trusted friends so perhaps it’s the reader right now and just a mismatch. If you’ve previously enjoyed Ruth Hogans books absolutely give this one a try. If you’re new to her writing I recommend trying The Keeper of Lost Things which I highly recommend.
Thank you to LibraryThing and William Marrow for a copy of Queenie Malone’s Paradise Hotel. All opinions are my own. ( )
