Today’s review is a little different from what I’ve been doing lately for my book reviews but I’d like to take them in this new direction in the future (I’ll still be reviewing novels too, don’t worry!).

Hotel Beau Séjour focuses on Kato Hoeven (Lynn Van Royen) as she investigate the circumstances surrounding her own murder. And the added twist to the series? only few of the town’s residents have the ability to see her in her purgatorial state.Continue reading “Review: Hotel Beau Séjour (2017)”
