Praise
"'Hotel Paradise' is brilliantly rendered and superbly textured, yes--but it is the amazing voice of a wonderful girl that provides such unique narrative force and lyrical beauty. If this book is a `mystery,' it's the mystery of life itself. As a reader I was enthralled. As a writer I was struck mute with jealousy."
From the Publisher

Editors Note 1 "ONLY THE MAGNIFICENT MARTHA GRIMES COULD HAVE WRITTEN THIS BOOK. . . . BRILLIANTLY RENDERED AND SUPERBLY TEXTURED."--Andrew VachssA neglected lake, covered with water lilies. A once fashionable, now faded resort. A derelict house full of secrets, uninhabited for almost half a century. The death of a twelve-year-old girl forty years in the past. And another girl who becomes obsessed with this death. With her knack for encouraging adults to reminisce, she begins to piece together puzzles from the past and present.HOTEL PARADISE is a delicate yet disturbing view of the decisions a young girl must make on her way to becoming an adult . . . and the choices she must make between right and wrong, love and truth, life and death. With its narrative grace, compelling characters, and intricate suspense, HOTEL PARADISE is Martha Grimes at the top of her form."Utterly engaging."--The Washington Post Book World
