Revue de presse
"A charming tale of second, even third, chances." —Booklist
"“Courses for Divorces.” That’s the plan in Moggach’s (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”) latest novel. When thrice-married Russell “Buffy” Buffery leaves London and buys a rundown B&B in the rural village of Knockton, Wales, he targets the niche newly single-traveler market with classes like, “How to Make a Sponge Cake,” and “How to Change a Tire.” However, the eccentric group of guests who show up learn little about practical matters and more about relationships." —New York Post
"I will start this review by declaring how much I adored this book, and Moggach, as both are such a true delight for any reader...Humorous, heartfelt and memorable characters will forever be in the minds of the readers as this book is clearly a masterpiece...I encourage readers to read this book. If possible read all of Moggach's books. Heartbreak Hotel is a wonderful pick-me-up and I promise you will come to love the author as much as I have."—Night Owl Reviews

Présentation de l'éditeur
When retired actor Buffy decides to up sticks from London and move to rural Wales, he has no idea what he is letting himself in for.
In possession of a run-down B&B that leans more towards the shabby than the chic and is miles from nowhere, he realises he needs to fill the beds – and fast.
Enter a motley collection of guests: Harold, whose wife has run off with a younger woman; Amy, who’s been unexpectedly dumped by her (not-so) weedy boyfriend and Andy, the hypochondriac postman whose girlfriend is much too much for him to handle.
But under Buffy’s watchful eye, this disparate group of strangers find they have more in common than perhaps they first thought...
