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. 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 an adult, 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 returns 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 …

Ruth Hogan tackles issues of isolation, mental illness, forgiveness, chosen families, and estranged mothers in this charming and delightful tale that is sure to resonate–and uplift–during these uncertain times.

Mothers and daughters … their story can be complicated … but it can also turn out to have a happy ending.

I found similarities between QUEENIE MALONE’S PARADISE HOTEL and LIES IN WHITE DRESSES (Sofia Grant) meets the writing of Lesley Kagen and Elizabeth Berg, also Gretchen Berg’s THE OPERATOR. Some loose connections to THE HOME OF ERRING AND OUTCAST GIRLS (Julie Kibler).
