The Hotel Room Mix-Up by Kathy Jay (2023)


The Hotel Room Mix-Up

Two weddings, three hotel reservations gone awry…and one weekend in Cornwall they’ll never forget!

When the similarities between Ella Swift and Callum Smith’s last names lead to a hotel room mix-up, they find themselves sharing a cramped cottage in Porthkara rather than the private luxury hotel suites they expected.

Each in town for a different wedding – and carrying more baggage than just the suitcases in their hands – the reluctant roommates are forced to share a shelter from the storm surge that sweeps in off the Atlantic. But as the rain crashes down there’s a shift in more than just the atmosphere, and by the time the sun rises on a new day, Ella and Callum’s futures have already been forever changed…


The Hotel Room Mix-Up is a heartwarming romance that touches on heavier themes such as bereavement and childhood trauma.

Ella and Callum have chemistry right from their first meeting, but both are too afraid to take the step from lighthearted flirtation to serious romantic entanglement. Despite their best efforts otherwise true love wins out.

Ella and Callum's family and friends find little ways of encouraging them along however it is not plain sailing at all. 

I enjoyed Ella's backstory of having a famous dad and her time as a young actress in TV shows and the toll it took on her mental health.

 Callum's past is more tragic. He endured a difficult childhood and suffered the loss of his wife in an accident. It is understandable that he would be wary of putting himself through more heartache.

I loved how things resolved in the end for the couple.
