I liked this, not as much as I thought I would but it was a fun read for sure. I loved the premise of a family living in an art deco hotel in New York. I thought the details about the family and the hotel were great, I wasn't so interested in some of the side plots (the Hamlet play) but I found Scarlett and her family so interesting that I will definitely be reading the next book. More than anything, this book made me miss NYC in a major way! ( )

I don't know why, but I love stories that take place in hotels. Maybe I've always wanted to secretly live in one or something but my eyes are always immediately drawn to books that take place in hotels at book stores. And, maybe I'm biased because of that, but I loved this book. I did read it awhile back but I can still remember loving the characters and the writing. If you're a fan of contemporary romance then definitely pick this book up! ( )

I found it a little slow in the beginning, but about a quarter of the way through it was pretty entertaining. Stories set in New York always make me happy.

It's a pretty funny story about a weird family who owns a hotel. There's a ridiculous play that needs to be hidden from parents and an old lady that changes Scarlett's life. Entertaining stuff. Weeeeeeeee! ( )

Imagine your family owned a hotel in New York City. It wasn’t a giant chain hotel, but an old historical sort of hotel. Imagine you lived in the hotel, slept in a suite, ate in the dining room and helped at the front desk after school. If you can’t imagine this, Maureen Johnson’s novel, Suite Scarlett, helps you with that.

Scarlett’s family lives in a run down hotel in New York City. The charm of the hotel is its history, but Scarlett’s family is struggling to keep the doors open and as our story begins, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. With a younger sister who is a cancer survivor and whose medical bills didn’t help the family finances, an older brother who wants to be a starving actor - quite literally if he has to be - and an older sister who seems like she has it all together, Scarlett and her siblings have to band together to help her family with the hotel. Top this off with her brother’s play that seems doomed from it’s beginning, his scene partner that has Scarlett seeing stars and the mysterious Mrs. Amberson who likes to shake things up and you’ve got a book packed with a fun and witty plot.

A quick-thinking, problem solver with strong family ties, Scarlett, is an endearing character and I found myself cheering for her from the very beginning. Mrs. Amberson - who moves into their hotel for the summer - takes her on as an assistant and meddles in the life of her family, putting Scarlett in some awkward situations which she has to power through. There is a bit of sibling rivalry, but it’s clear to see that Scarlett and her siblings love and respect each other.

There are times when the story read a little sitcomesque, but overall I thought that Suite Scarlett was a wonderful read. Though it walks the line, it never crosses over to saccharine or corny; its quick pace guarantees that there is never a dull moment.

This book is dedicated to anyone who has ever played a dead body on a stage or screen. It takes a big actor to lie on the ground and keep quiet. Droop on, my lifeless friends.
