Book Review | ELEVATOR GIRL | 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

Before I begin the review

If you are an author and have stories bubbling inside you, even reading becomes hectic. While reading a novel I keep analyzing it with my author mind, keep thinking about things I would have done differently, make notes of things I like… Very rarely does it happen that I am too engrossed in a story and keep reading without a worry in the world.
Elevator girl is one such story.

I have been meaning to read Stephanie Bond since is watched he interview on Amazon KDP university. She is so humble and honest. I gave always wanted to write serials and Stephanie aces the art of serials.

So, yesterday I picked up this one. My only grouse is that I picked the wrong one as in the one that is still in progress. I gave to wait for give more months for the full story. Damn!

Plot Summary & Review

Elevator Girl Part 1 of 6, as the name suggests, is the first part of a six part serial.

This story is about Virginia Hall who left her job because her ex boyfriend slept with her boss. And post pandemic there are very few job opportunities. She lands a job as an Elevator Girl at retro hotel. But things aren’t as simple as they seem. Soon Virginia finds herself involved in a murder mystery.

The book is just so freaking awesome. I couldn’t put my phone down until I read all thirty chapters.

Just wow!

I hope my books are the same. Check them out on Amazon. You might like them if you like light breezy romantic comedies.
