This was a sweet little story about Sophie Spark, intern at the formerly grand hotel called A Castle in the Clouds. She befriends birds, longtime employees and boys. There was a bit of magic here, along with a mystery about a jewel, just enough to keep my interest. I don't know if I would have gotten around to reading this if I weren't babysitting a small pile of books from the library during the pandemic. ( )

Sophie Spark decides that university is not for her, so she takes a position as an intern at a luxury resort in the Swiss Alps, much to her parents' dismay. Her position has her doing a little of everything, from working in the laundry to babysitting the children of the hotel's guests. She meets a lot of fascinating characters, some of whom may be jewel thieves and kidnappers -- or is that just her overactive imagination?

Sophie reminded me a little of Jane Austen's Catherine Norland, always seeing dramatic plots everywhere. Jewel heists! Kidnappings! Curses! Ghosts! ...Then again, maybe there really are all of those things in this book -- I won't give it away. Plus, there's the obligatory love triangle: two hot, nice guys, both interested in Sophie. Decisions, decisions! I found this book a little over the top, but young teens who enjoy this sort of romantic comedy adventure will probably love it. The romance goes no further than kissing, there's a little bit of violence but nothing too gruesome, and the setting is delightful. I probably wouldn't recommend it to grown-ups or even older teens, but for tweens it could be just the thing. ( )

Castle in the Clouds reminds me of the old-fashioned mystery novel.

Sophie Spark decides to work at the hotel Castle in the Clouds as the intern instead of attend school. She performs various duties, one of which is babysitter. She also works in the spa. As I mentioned, the novel is like an old-fashioned mystery. First, the suspects: all the hotel guests and the hotel workers. Second, the crime: is there one or is there only a story being told to frighten Sophie?

Sophie learns that the hotel is not doing well and the owner is trying to sell. The owner treats everyone, except guests, rudely. The owner's son, Ben, does not share his father's beliefs. He feels he is the unpaid help, but he loves his hotel. He also finds Sophie intriguing. Tristan Brown presents himself as the hotel thief. In actuality, he is there with his grandfather, Professor Arthur Brown who is an expert on gems. He also finds Sophie intriguing. To add some humor, we have the Forbidden Cat, whom the owner has no knowledge of. The cat seems to appear and disappear on cue, never to be seen by the owner but well taken care of by guests and workers alike. There also seems to be a resident ghost--at least the pipes make enough noise to possibly be a ghost or just annoying old pipes.

There are various wealthy guests among the lucky guests who have saved up to stay at this famous hotel in the clouds. Children disappear, a ring disappears, a man carries a gun, a cat appears and disappears, and guests explore in areas of the hotel not expected. Sophie navigates these peculiarities while also contemplating a possible romance....with Ben? with Tristan? The novel begins with blood running down Sophie's arm while carrying a child. While running for her life with someone, she is kissed. Then, the novel goes back in time to see how we get here.

The hotel has nooks and crannies, mysterious noises, secrets, mysteries (could one employee still be the same age after 30+ years?), unknown workers and the Forbidden Cat. It's a lot of fun and well worth your time as you find out who Sophie is kissing and who the criminal is or who the criminals are. ( )

Das ist ein sehr süßes Buch, das einfach gute Laune macht.
Ich habe ständig laut vor mich hin gekichert.
Dabei ist die Handlung etwas undurchsichtig, zunächst ist es einfach ein vergnügliches Buch über ein norddeutsches Mädchen, das in einem Schweizer Hotel ein Praktikum macht und dort allerlei erlebt. Es ist nicht ganz klar, worauf es hinauslaufen wird. Später wird es dann ein Krimi und der ist sogar recht spannend.
Also, süß, harmlos und vergnüglich! ( )

Vuole mettere insieme romanzo rosa, giallo e fantasy. Ne è venuto fuori un pastrocchio insapore e insipido. Una sbobba senza personalità ( )
