The BookViral Review:

Chock a block with romance, adventure and the obligatory ‘baddies’, ‘The Castle of Troubled Souls Hotel’ ticks all the boxes for a relaxing read.

Joann is a 25-year-old singleton who holds a 45% share in a Hotel inherited from her father who passed away when she was young. Despite having made the Hotel a resounding success with her business partners, things take a sharp turn when they sell out to rakish-looking Garrett Fereday.

As their relationship deepens, Joann begins to harbour secret feelings towards her new business partner, but the plot thickens as more characters become embroiled in their lives, leading to some surprising conclusions, great danger, a treasure map and a ghost or two added for good measure!

Barlowe keeps us guessing throughout, as implications from the past catch up with an increasingly bewildered Joann, who finds that all that glitters is not gold, and both physical and metaphorical treasure can be found hidden in plain view.

The Castle of Troubled Souls Hote takes us deep into the Cornish Countryside as the plot unfolds, with some arresting imagery and description, creating a solid backdrop against which the mystery plays out. With some obvious conflict creating disaccord between the protagonist and the key characters, one might assume that the dangers are obvious, but ultimately the real threat springs from a rather more surprising place, culminating in a fast-paced and exciting conclusion, and the realisation that the troubled souls are rather more solid than the apparitions we might imagine.

An immersive and recommended read for discerning fans of mystery and romance. This feisty tale will not disappoint.

A tale of English snobbery at its best, this collection of mini-stories makes for a refreshingly unique tongue-in-cheek read.
