What they say:
‘Kate Foster runs the Summerside Inn (and her life) by well-organized checklists.
Make sure the caterers don’t serve devil’s food cake to the Christian Women’s Alliance– check.
Tell my mother that having a séance to get rid of any unwanted spirits in the kitchen during dinnertime is not okay- check.
Send a friendly reminder to all staff that the pens are colour coded for everyone’s enjoyment, and therefore it is not a good idea to put them all in one jar in order to “spice things up” as was anonymously suggested– check.
But, when an acclaimed hotel critic dies at the Inn, just before she’s about to publish a scathing review that would ruin the business, Kate’s life and checklists are thrown into disarray. And it doesn’t help matters that the detective assigned to the case is messy, unorganized, and too charming for his own good. Now Kate has to prove her innocence and save her Inn, or else the only thing that she’ll be organizing is the prison’s next bake sale.’

Review by Elizabeth Wright
Emily sets out to create unusual protagonists that tap into something different in each reader and in Checking Inn she has certainly succeeded. Unless you have OCD it is fairly difficult to empathise with someone who does, yet somehow the main character, Kate, slowly gets into your head and before you know it you are completely on her side. Throw in a little murder mystery intrigue and a roguishly handsome detective to balance her out and you have the perfect escape after a busy week.
Harper’s writing is easy to read and her characters are believable. Some you’ll love and some you’ll hate, but you will certainly find yourself invested in several of them. The small town Kate lives in sounds idyllic, but the descriptions of Summerside Inn make it a dream destination. If only it were real and I could visit (although I wouldn’t be so interested in the Botox offer!). Overall this is a lovely weekend read and ideal for anyone wanting to relax and forget about their own problems for a while.
Emily Harper has a passion for writing humorous romance stories where the heroine is not your typical damsel in distress. Throughout her novels you will find love, laughter, and the unexpected!
Originally from England, she currently lives in Canada with her wonderful husband, beautiful daughter, mischievous son, and a very naughty dog.
Emily is also the author of the funny and charming novel White Lies, which has proven to be a huge hit with fans. The book will even be appearing on The Marilyn Denis Show as a giveaway next month! For more information on the book please visit Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
