The Roche Hotel: Season 1 by Mysti Parker

The Roche Hotel
A serial romantic comedy by Mysti Parker
After her husband ditches her for a blonde actress wannabe,
Jane Seymour needs a job that pays the rent. The struggling Roche
Hotel needs a miracle. With the former owner’s wife butting her nose
into the renovations and new owners who are in way over their heads,
Jane may be the answer to their prayers. Sure, she can handle The
Roche Hotel’s quirky staff. But, can this skittish divorcee keep it all
together when handsome Henry the Donut Guy makes his first
delivery? This collection of serial fiction stories is a Tudorific romantic comedy that will leave you
laughing fore more!
THEY say a lot of things, don’t they? Like don’t wear white after Labor Day or don’t fry bacon
with your shirt off (that’s probably good advice, come to think of it). Most of what THEY say
goes right in one ear and out the other. But, in terms of writing, when THEY say “write what you
know”, it makes a lot of sense. So, that’s where The Roche Hotel got its start—from my own
experience working in a hotel way back in the ‘90s.
Many of these first 10 episodes are based on some very real incidents that happened during my
days as a front desk clerk in a little mid-priced hotel. Sure, a lot of stuff’s made up purely from
my crazy imagination, but there were 5:00 AM donuts—delicious being fresh from the bakery.
Henry the Donut Guy—not real, but I wouldn’t have argued one bit if he had been! Among the
many other true-to-life items that appear at the Roche Hotel are a popcorn machine, a Muzak
(think elevator music) that never played at the right volume, at least one “lady of the night”, and

Thanks so much for your support! Happy reading! ~Mysti Parker


This was by far the easier read of my entire life! Sure, 153 pages isn't a lengthy novel, but if it's a horrible piece of work, even one of that length could drag on for a week! I was still laughing long after I finished it! There is literally humor to be found on every page.

Mysti Parker's prose, as usual, was immaculate. I enjoy her writing so much that I get jealous from time to time...shhhh ;). I can't help myself. I love a well-written, strategic book.

Jane's predicament with her mother pulled at the old heart-strings. It was captured so well, that even those who have yet to face those days can relate. As is her situation with the jerk of an ex-husband. I'm sure many can relate to that!

The romance between Jane and Henry may have been short and sweet...very sweet, but it was nice and simple. I'm ready for more! Get to it woman.

I'm hoping the Author doesn't mind if I throw in a couple of excerpts. These are hysterical!

(1) Just a bit of a teaser: Sewage Saves the Day and Aqua Net Can't Catch A Man, are two of the chapter titles!

(2) Excerpt: "I'm willing to overlook any multiple personalities or imaginary friends in return for enchilada's and homemade salsa."

(3) Excerpt: "Will I be blamed for letting hookers into the hotel? Maybe they were too much for him."
