Book Review | ELEVATOR GIRL Part 3 of 6 | Stephanie Bond


Book Description

An Amazon exclusive! In this romantic comedy mystery, a young woman discovers that life is like an elevator–just be sure to get off on the right floor.

Hello. My name is Virginia, although I live in Georgia… Atlanta, to be precise. Two years ago I happily clutched my degree in Hospitality Management, smug with the knowledge that I would always have job security because no matter what, people would always travel, right? And then the pandemic happened. It’s hard to complain about losing my job in the midst of so much tragedy, but it came on the heels of a bad breakup, and being partially abandoned by my jet-setting parents. I was shook.

Thank goodness the economy is starting to reopen, but because so many hotels have closed permanently, there are three people for every hospitality job available, and I don’t have enough seniority to even warrant an interview. So when I heard of an opening at a historic hotel in Midtown that’s allegedly haunted, I showed up in person to beg for the job. I naively told the eccentric owner I’d do anything… and that’s how I wound up being an Elevator Girl.

What’s an Elevator Girl? Stay tuned, friends, for the story. There are ghosts, an unsolved murder, and some of the most oddball guests imaginable. Oh, and the mind-bending secret I stumbled upon in the basement. In between I spend a LOT of time riding up and down, wondering where my life went wrong and how I can get off this ride._________________This ELEVATOR GIRL, Part 1 novella is a month’s worth of daily segments: JULY

Author’s Profile

USA TODAY bestselling author Stephanie Bond was seven years deep into a systems engineering career and pursuing an MBA at night when an instructor remarked that she had a flair for writing and suggested that she submit to academic journals. But Stephanie, a voracious reader, was only interested in writing fiction–more specifically, romantic fiction.

Upon completing her master’s degree and with no formal training in writing (her undergraduate degree is in computer programming), she started writing a romance novel in her spare time. Two years later in 1995 she sold her first manuscript, a romantic comedy, to Harlequin Books.

In 1997, with ten sales under her belt to two publishers, Stephanie left her corporate job to write women’s romantic fiction full-time. In 2011,

Stephanie launched a self-publishing business. Since that time, she has sold more than 1 million copies of her own books. To-date, Stephanie has published over 70 novels and has over 6 million copies of her work in worldwide distribution in numerous languages and formats.

Plot Summary & Review

Elevator Girl has got me hooked. I’ve been waiting for the third installment since September 8. I am a KU person, so I read books on my subscription. I never buy a Kindle book, unless they are free, or if I mistakenly click on the buy button.

So, Part 3 of 6 is here.





Shit just got real!

That’s the thought that came to my mind when I finished this part. 


I know… Things had gotten serious in the second installment itself but this one takes it to a notch higher. 


Virginia tries to solve Eloise’s murder mystery while also flirting with a handsome bartender. She’s truly getting the best of both worlds, if you know what I mean, wink wink. One bartender, Alec is super handsome and hot. The other one, Archie likes Virginia, too. Plus, he’s that trustworthy person, that one friend you need when you’re messed up. 

I can’t disclose much beyond this else I will ruin it for others. 

Parting Thoughts

I so relate to Virginia. I had a pounding headache while reading this book even though I’m not doing any time travel. I’m NOT.

Oh, please… Don’t tell me that I spoiled it by mentioning time travel. It’s in the first book itself. 

It was overwhelming even to read about Virginia going back and forth. I want to attribute it to Stephanie’s brilliant writing. You feel the protagonist’s pain. 

If it isn’t brilliant writing, I blame my headache to a super stressful Sunday. I have been doing some chores that have drained me mentally. The week hasn’t begun yet. and I’m already too tired. I need to loosen up a little bit before Monday schedule kicks in.

Ah! I wish I could quit my job and just write and make enough money to make ends meet. That would be an awesome life, ya?

Could someone recommend some light rom-com to watch on YouTube? Thanks!
