I am not a cover designer but I can agree that cover layouts play an important role in the overall presentation of stories and I must admit, often times I first judge a book by its cover.
The Thousand Lights Hotel by Emylia Hall
Pub Date 13 Jul 2017
THE THOUSAND LIGHTS HOTEL is the gorgeous new novel from Emylia Hall, author of Richard & Judy Summer Pick THE BOOK OF SUMMERS. Set in idyllic Italy, it’s the perfect holiday read, for fans of Louise Douglas and Hannah Richell.
When Kit loses her mother in tragic circumstances, she feels drawn to finally connect with the father she has never met. That search brings her to the Thousand Lights Hotel, the perfect holiday escape perched upon a cliff on the island of Elba. Within this idyllic setting a devastating truth is brought to light: shaking the foundations upon which the hotel is built, and shattering the lives of the people within it.
A heartbreaking story of loss, betrayal, and redemption, told with all the warmth and beauty of an Italian summer.
As I’ve said before, I am drawn by the ocean and stories that take place near them. I am a Florida native by birth and grew up near beaches and went often. Still do when I get the chance. Those were some of the happiest moments of my life. The smell of the salty air, the warmth of the sun, the ocean breeze, the sounds of the seagulls and the waves as they break at the shore line. Just to relax in the sun and stare out at the ocean while your mind is reflective. The ocean gives one such a calming effect. When there is not a storm of course! There is a saying for people like me, “I have sand between my toes.” Anyhow, I am getting way off topic here.
As you can tell, I really like this cover and its scenic view. The title is appealing as well. As you have read in the book description, there are sad moments and hopefully happy ones. Will this book make for a good summer read? Well, that is something you will have to find out entirely on your own but who knows, I might pick it up.
