The Gull Motel by Amie Denman

The Gull Motel (A Barefoot Book)The Gull Motel by Amie Denman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a captivating read.

I loved this book, its certainly one I loved sitting out in the garden on a nice sunny day, lemonade on hand and reading.

Savvy's aunt and uncle run a Motel, and now that college is finished she decided to head there, she's always had a room there of her own for over 24 years, so a nice vacation is what she is looking forward to.

Her aunts Mother is ill with dementia and she badly needs being taken care of, so they leave the Motel in the capable hands of Savvy while they head out to look after her Mother, only the short break is lasing longer that short! Where Savvy is now right in the middle of managing the Motel on her own.

In comes Skip who bought the bar next door. Savvy and Skip have history.

It was lovely to read the banter that went on between those two.

Great read, highly recommended.

I read this as part of a blog tour and without that, I don't think I would have come across this superb author.

Savvy Thorpe needs a vacation. Finally finished with college, she heads to her favorite shabby motel on Florida’s Gulf Coast where her aunt and uncle always save her room twenty-four. She quickly finds out, though, that The Gull Motel is not just her home away from home. It’s hers to manage while her aunt and uncle take an extended trip.

Skip McComber, The Gull’s former maintenance man, has been working on Savvy’s nuts and bolts for years. Now the new owner of the bar next door, his mission is to renovate a pirate bar while being a walking temptation for the girl he can’t get off his mind.

For Savvy, keeping her cool running a motel in Florida heat is one thing, but navigating the steamy waters of a former fling takes a whole other kind of savvy. In addition to the motel and the man next door, Savvy stumbles on a plot to swindle land from the residents of Barefoot Key. Devalued properties tumble like dominoes until Savvy musters her colorful crew from The Gull Motel to make the pillagers walk the plank.
