The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle by Sharon Buchbinder was a paranormal romance with a lot of twists and turns that kept me turning the pages. Tallulah Thompson is an independent hotel inspector with a gift. Lucius Stewart is a man who was cursed over a century ago on the day that he obtained his dream of owning the Hotel LaBelle. These characters were well developed and the history and background of the Billings, MT area was excellent. The plot was fast paced but fully developed and each character brought another element to the story. Tallulah and Lucius are both smart and strong. Their growing relationship is sometimes humorous and sometimes painful as they both must face Lucius' past. I will definitely be looking for more from Ms. Buchbiner. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from The Wild Rose Press via NetGalley.

The fate of the Hotel LaBelle is on the line and hotel inspector Tallulah Thompson will the need the help of a powerful medicine woman to undo the curse on Lucius, the extremely annoyed innkeeper who is neither dead nor alive. This suspenseful romance that is set in a wonderfully historical inn with lots of Native American influence. Tallulah and Lucius are strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers into their story that is full of emotional turmoil and a relationship that has a major obstacle- the hero is in limbo. This keeps the romance on the sweet side as Tallulah struggles with her attraction to Lucius and wondering if she stands a chance against the past which readers can certainly understand. Lucius is charming and the way he sees things is quite charming and produces quite a few chuckles due to the fact that he has been bound to the inn. With the fate of Hotel LaBelle on the line, readers easily become caught up in the romance part of the story as well as the suspense of Lucius’ situation and the happenings of the man who is trying to claim the hotel as his own which causes quite a bit of trouble and excitement. The author created a wonderful setting for her series that has its own ambiance that fits this story perfectly and readers definitely want to read every last page of this intriguing romance.

The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle by Sharon Buchbinder starts me out with a laugh and I love that. The story begins at Hotel LaBelle in 1905. Finally Lucius’ dreams came true. He’d worked hard, sacrificed much, including his love. He was ‘left’ with a curse from Mourning Dove’s powerful mother. Present Day: Tallulah was at the Hotel LaBelle to find out why the hotel’s renovations were being delayed. The outside looked like Hotel LaHelle. She hadn’t had a vision in a year and she wondered, “Why now?” Enter Lucius: who is neither alive nor dead. My thoughts are of a very unusual romance. Is it possible? Both the living and the dead want her there, to fix what is broken, to save Hotel LaBelle. The Native American mysticism adds that extra element that intrigues me, that takes this creatively written paranormal/supernatural read to a special place. I love haunted buildings and ghosts. Tallulah also has a dog, a pug. Any time a critter appears in a book I am reading, it adds a little spice to the story. The writing has a humorous side, along with the mystery, and all I can say is, “I want to return to Hotel LaBelle:” I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle by Sharon Buchbinder.

Pages: 156 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense Sub Genre: Fantasy & SciFi; Horror; Romance; Paranormal; Ghosts ISBN: 13: 9781509211548 ASIN: B01LXK295J Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.5 Stars I received a copy of "The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description From the Publisher: When hotel inspector, Tallulah Thompson, is called in along with her pug, Franny, to investigate renovation delays, she meets an extremely annoyed and dapper turn-of-the-century innkeeper. The only problem is he’s in limbo, neither dead nor alive, and Tallulah and the pug are the first to see him in a hundred years. Cursed by a medicine woman, “Love ‘em and Leave ‘em Lucius” Stewart is stuck between worlds until he finds his true love and gives her his heart. When he first sees Tallulah, he doesn’t know what he’s feeling. Yet, her stunning beauty, and feisty attitude pull him in. With the fate of Hotel LaBelle on the line, Tallulah with the help of a powerful medicine woman turns Lucius back into a flesh and blood man. She and Lucius team up to save the hotel, but Tallulah can't help but wonder if he will ever let go of his past love and learn to love again. My Review: When is a ghost not a ghost? When a powerful Crow medicine woman filled with grief exiles the person to limbo, neither living or dead. Lucius Stewart fell in love with the Hotel LaBelle and ended up costing him his unborn son and wife, the medicine woman's daughter. After over a century of limbo, finally someone sees and acknowledges him. Tallulah Thompson and her pug Fanny have come to inspect the old hotel and get it ready for the new owner, Will Wellington. Then complications set in. She realizes Lucius is not a ghost, Will is unscrupulous, and she's going to need help to bring Lucius back into the real world. Sharon Buchbinder has created well rounded and realistic characters for readers to enjoy. The plot is laid out to move smoothly scene to scene. Flowing quickly to keep the readers interest. Who has not heard something unexplained or just seen something just out of the corner of their eye? So many questions floating around. "The Haunting of Hotel LaBelle" may answer a few of the hows and whys for you. My rating is 4.5 out of 5 stars. Take a break and enjoy the possibility of legends and maybe.
