Description

With profiteers skulking the London streets, and devious rivals plotting the Buckingham's downfall, the hotel staff must all hold onto what matters most- and decide where their loyalties truly lie. As publication date approaches for my new novel, The Ballroom Blitz, I’m delighted to let you know that I’ll be appearing at a marvellous selection of literary events over the coming weeks to talk all about it! Billy manages to get her a job at the hotel, in housekeeping, but it doesn't all go according to plan.

Surprised not only by the rich storytelling but by the way Du Beke’s charming writing is filled with glorious characters who you can’t help but feel emotion for. The staff at the Buckingham Hotel are trying to carry on as normal and give their honored guests a magical stay. While wartime tales are not always my go to genre this book pulled me in and i just could not put it down. This is clearly part of a series, but does also stand alone as the reader is soon brought up to speed. There are a few new characters to this book and actually overall there are lots of characters to keep track of however there is a helpful page of the characters' names and who they are at the beginning of the book which you can refer to and wish more authors would do this.They all have issues and most of the story involved everything from profiteering to mental health problems, poor family relationships and greed. As Strictly's longest running professional dancer, and now Judge, Anton is the perfect author to lead the reader to the dancefloor as never before. He was the toast of the Buckingham Hotel's Grand Ballroom, and is going to host One Grant Night to raise much needed money for the war effort. It’s Jack and the Beanstalk at the Churchill Theatre, Bromley, and it’s going to be absolutely terrific!

Apart from 'there' instead of 'their' and 'it' instead of 'it's ' every age had word or words removed from the correct place and put in several lines above where they should be. There are changes afoot in many aspects of The Buckingham, look forward to reading the next instalment. You don't need to be a Strictly fan to relish this lively read, its glamour, magic and colourful characters contrasting starkly with the privations of grey, war-torn London. I know he's started writing a different series, so I hope I don't have to wait too long for another Buckingham Hotel book. As bombs rain down on London in 1940, those employed by the well renowned Buckingham Hotel, do what they can to ensure their guests are kept comfortable.As usual they approach a member of the team who they feel might be a weak link and easily exploited.
