Heartwood Hotel, Book 3 Better Together
Mona, Tilly, and the rest of the Heartwood Hotel staff are back for another adventure. But there are a couple of changes — Mr. Heartwood decides to take a vacation and leave the hotel in the hands of the staff, and Tilly’s annoying little brother, Henry, comes to stay for awhile. When rumors are heard of a new hotel opening nearby, the members of the staff decide they must do something to fill the hotel and defend against another hotel stealing their business. They come up with a plan to hold a Spring Splash with lots of competitions. Soon every room is full, and the competitions grow. All the while, Mona has to take on a lot more work, including looking after Henry. When dangerous, uninvited guests show up, it’s up to Mona to save the day.
Author Kallie George has written another enchanting book in the Heartwood Hotel series that will delight young readers. The characters are fully-formed and as believable as animal characters can be. The charming illustrations by Stephanie Graegin support the story perfectly. Each book in this series easily stands on its own, but they, as a group, will keep young readers reading for days on end.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
