Hotel Portofino

Hotel Portofino by J.P. O’Connell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reading this novel felt like I was watching the English tv series “Downton Abbey”. Although I was a fan of the TV show – I was not a big fan of the book. This novel contains everything needed for juicy drama – secret affairs, love triangles, unexpected friendships, blackmail, pricey robbery, and all of this is taking place during the roaring ’20s in the luxury hotel on the most beautiful Italian riviera.

The novel was entertaining but too romantically dramatic for my liking. And the characters – that was one fascinating set of people. And I did enjoy a little history behind the main scenes. Thank you NetGalley and Blackstone Publishing for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
