|Samantha can’t resist being in control. Told to take a
holiday break, she ends up taking over room service in the
new hotel. Delivering refreshments to a rock band with the
lurid name Vampires could be eye-opening, she thinks, even a
trifle hazardous. But surely she’s seen all there is to see
in hotel rooms during her working life.
Room Service changes Sam’s life forever
once she opens the door of the Vampires’ hotel room.
Shocked out of her usual sang froid, Samantha clings
precariously to her cool, and all but bolts from the room.
She doesn’t escape however, for she bumps into Sully, one of
the band members, on the beach later.
The writing is witty and perceptive, and the denouement,
when it comes, is a surprise. I enjoyed reading Room Service
for the entertaining internal dialogue of the heroine, and I
wanted the story to go on far longer than it did.
