    I loved this book. I loved 12-year-old Emma. I loved how her mind works, and it works all the time. I loved all the characters she comes in contact with. I loved the atmosphere and the sense of place. This is not an action mystery, but a slow paced charmer that you don't want to put down until it's done.

    Response to review titled 'CHECK OUT THE HOLIDAY INN'

    I read the sequal to Hotel Paradise, Cold Flat Junction, before reading Hotel Paradise. I loved them both but really do consider them companian books--the individual who titled their review 'Check out the Holiday Inn' didn't seem to conclude that it was meant to leave something missing--I believe if they read Cold Flat Junction they would have their missing pieces filled it (it also is much more textured than Hotel Paradise). It felt to me that the two books really should've been one, but I enjoyed the characters, visualizations, and language so much that it was well worth the wait for the clarity that the other book gave (though their were some things left again for resolution for the next sequal). Read these books back-to-back--if you enjoy quirky characters and first-person narrative in a child's voice, I believe you will have a wonderful journey.

    How could you not love Emma? Add that to a slightly creepy atmosphere and excellent plotting. Just a wonderful read.

    Engaging and delightful Heroine

    This book is different from other books I have read by Ms. Grimes. And because it was different, I was almost tempted to dismiss it out of hand. But, the engaging character of the 12 year Emma (not named until the end) just kept me reading until the last page because I just had to learn what she would say next and what she would find out about poor Mary-Evelyn and Rose. It certainly left me wanting more and I was very glad to read the sequel Cold Flat Junction. I hope Ms. Grimes writes more books from the eyes of Emma. She is a delight!

    I loved this book!

    I have never read a Grimes novel before and I loved it! The characters were all so belivable-I especially liked the old aunt upstairs. I loved that the point of veiw was from the 12 year old (she was so realistic!!!) My favorite part had to be the ending-this book would not have been nearly as good if it had been neatly tied up at the end, that just isn't how life goes and this story was about ordinary people living life in a small town.
