Description

Raymond de Guise, home on leave and still affected by the death of his brother, is desperate to help so he joins a night watch. I loved this one so much, I immediately went out and bought the one set before this and am making my mission to get all the others in this series too!

It’s Jack and the Beanstalk at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley, and it’s going to be absolutely terrific! As the skies split apart and bombs rain down on London, it’s all the staff at the famed Buckingham Hotel can do to keep their guests in the luxury they’re accustomed to, and evoke the magic of the Grand ballroom for them each night.This book was just magical, it transports you to 1940s London in the time of the blitz and how the show must go on at the Buckingham Hotel. Royalty from other countries are flocking there for the duration of the war, so the hotel manages to keep busy. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Although I haven’t read the prequels to this book I still felt as though I could pick it up and follow the story without feeling muddled, though that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t mind reading the start of Raymond De Guise’s, Nancy’s as well as the other staff members stories.

Home on leave and still reeling from the tragic events at Dunkirk, the dashing Raymond de Guise struggles to define his role in this new world, and to do his duty both to his country, and his beloved wife Nancy- who needs him now more than ever. There are a few new characters to this book and actually overall there are lots of characters to keep track of however there is a helpful page of the characters' names and who they are at the beginning of the book which you can refer to and wish more authors would do this. I love the author’s style of writing, I felt as though I was there in the ballroom, watching the dancing and at the other end of the scale, I could feel the fear of the unstable place that England was and the trepidation of the characters with the regular bombings. There are changes afoot in many aspects of The Buckingham, look forward to reading the next instalment. A consummate storyteller adept at captivating audiences, he is now captivating readers as he whisks them away to worlds of dance, intrigue, high society and scandal.But, at the same time, knew that the end of the book also marked me having to say goodbye to the characters again for a while. Unfortunately I was only able to give this book 3 stars because it was edited so badly that I almost couldn't read it. From the glamour of the ballroom with Archie Adam’s music playing for all the guests to enjoy, whilst watching the enchanting seasoned dancers of the Buckingham Hotel waltz away, versus the harsh juxtaposition of outside the hotel doors, where the war ridden streets of London awaits full of looters, air raid sirens, bombs and last but especially not least the brave volunteers for the war effort. With profiteers skulking the London streets, and devious rivals plotting the Buckingham's downfall, the hotel staff must all hold onto what matters most- and decide where their loyalties lie.
