Gorgeous little Grace Andersen has been abandoned at
the altar at the Rock' n' Rolla Hotel in Memphis. The
owner, Willodean Jackson, is a sprite energetic lady
completely in love with everything "Elvis", including all
decors in the hotel as well as all music. She is also a
great "matchmaker"! Now Grace is penniless and needs to
find work to earn enough money to return to Las Vegas.
However, Willodean's strait laced son, Charlie McMinn, is
anxious to have Grace gone. His mother takes in all strays
and has a heart of gold and is quite rich herself, making
her a target. Charlie is an investment and figures man and
takes care of his mother's assets even as he worries that
she is being taken advantage of by all the strays.
With Christmas near, Charlie is placating his mother
by acting as an "Elvis" lookalike complete in a gold lame
jacket and pompadour hair, performing weddings in the
chapel. Willodean offers Grace a job as event coordinator
and gives her a small apartment to enable her to earn her
fare home. In spite of his wishes, Charlie immediately
feels a staggering connection to Grace which shakes his
steady equilibrium. The kicker is, flashy Grace also feels
the same connection to the boring but handsome man always
in black. As the relationship escalates, Charlie takes a
leap of faith to denounce everything he believes in to
capture Grace. Having none of this, Grace is terrified of
his advancement and Charlie has to find a way to show her
he can be patient and step back.
Another installment in the Rock' n' Rolla Hotel is
just as entertaining and quirky as the others I previously
read. The delightful and snappy characters will keep you
smiling and fulfill you with a genuine feeling of love and
warmth. I absolutely love this series and especially the
character Willodean. I look forward to future installments
from this series and do not plan to miss a single one!
A bride abandoned at the altar . . . just in time for
Christmas? 'Tis the season for second chances at Cheryl
Harper's Elvis-themed Rock'n'Rolla Hotel.
After trying and failing at acting, modeling, dog grooming,
and a dozen other jobs, Grace Andersen thought for sure
she'd nail marrying a rich man. But dumped in a hotel chapel
and strapped for cash, Grace needs a miracleâ€”and a job.
Grace isn't sure what to think of sexy, rugged Charlie,
except that she can't deny the attraction between them, or
how good it feels to finally fit in somewhere. Is she ready
to give a certain placeâ€”and a certain someoneâ€”a real chance?
Or will she abandon a true Christmas miracle?
