The Roche Hotel, Season1 by Mysti Parker

  Rated 3.5 STARS

This is the first installment of The Roche Hotel where we meet Jane Seymour, a newly divorced and disgruntled ex-wife who has been dumped by her husband for a younger, sexier model.
Jane is starting a new job as the night desk clerk at the hotel and she meets her colleagues, a handsome donut delivery man and an assortment of  customers from her first night on.
The hotel is having difficulties, which start to dissipate when a death occurs!  A councilman who was escorted by two women ends up dead in the early morning.
Soon the hotel is booked by people who want to see the ghost who seems to be appearing now.
Jane tentatively starts a relationship with the donut guy, tries to care for her mother who lives in a nursing home and tries to adjust to living the night life.

Jane was a likeable character but I wasn’t sure why Donut Guy fell for her so fast and hard.  He seems like a good catch and a nice guy but Jane has been tricked before so I understand her reluctance to start a new relationship.
I liked her relationship with her mom.  She genuinely cared for her and tried to provide the best environment that she could for her mom who seems to have dementia.
The supporting cast was quirky enough to be interesting and to continue on in the stories to come.


I’ll look forward to the next installment to see if Jane and the gang can really hook me but they’ve made a pretty good start.
