There's no doubt about it, the Cure Hotel situated on the outskirts of Manhattan is one of the most run down establishments in the whole of America. This is a hotel that not only boasts dampness, poor decoration and lighting, but also welcomes the most sinister type of overnight guest. Shady loners, men with prostitutes, bosses and their assistants - It all takes place und ...more

Well...this was unexpected. I thought it was a simple sex book, a story about a horny receptionist who liked to entertain male guests who stayed at the hotel. At the beginning, thats exactly what it was, however, halfway through that all changed.

All in all I think the story had great potential and it was quite exciting with its twist and turns; the characters were interesting and I found myself reading most of the book in one sitting because I had to know what was going to happen next. However,

This book was so good! I love books written in first person and I loved the twist in the middle where it switched to a different person's point of view. I was definitely not expecting what happened but I couldn't stop reading! The only reason it took as long as it did was because of school and other things I had to do at home. But I will definitely be reading more books written by Ashley Clancy!

Great Psycho-thriller.
As story comprises couple of thrills, I like the writer moves the story.
Jenna,the leading character have shown like a normal person like us.
Certainly, Thriller lover's should read it.
Heartily Thanks to Ashley Clancy,the writer.

‘With a small spy hole in every room, which viewing will leave the biggest hole in someone’s life?'


The Cure Hotel is not a book I would immediately gravitate towards, however the blurb and tagline intrigued me so I thought I’d give it a go. Seeing the private going-ons of the inside of a hotel room just seems too appealing – everyone is nosey and I must admit, I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to know what others get up to in their hotel rooms!

I was given this book for free for an honest review. I'm afraid I have nominal aphasia so I'm not the greatest at writing and grammar but I can honestly say that I really did enjoy this book, a welcome change from the normal crime thrillers I normally read. This book was original in its story line for me and would be hard to categorise thriller horror with some voyeurism. It also was an easy read good for me with aphasia as some books with complicated story lines i have to read over or have to c ...more

For me it took me a while to get into for some reason I didn't really jell with Christina to begin with but the more I read the more it captivated me to continue reading.

The story telling was great from first person view definitely would read more books from Ashley.

I was planning to read this book within two days, but finished in just one sitting. It took three or four chapters to warm up, but when it did, it certainly did. At my planned stopping point on chapter seven, the story twisted on it's head. This was something I really didn't see coming. After chapter seven it's literally one cliffhanger after another, holding your breath and then at the end of every chapter, wanting to know what happens next.

This book is a little hard to write a review for, with

Thanks to Ashley for sending me this book. This isn't the type of thing I would pick out for myself to read so I wasn't sure what to expect, I did end up enjoying it.
I found the story a bit slow at first but a few chapters in It did start to pick up and I then got through it very quickly. There are a lot of unexpected twists and it kept me guessing right until the end.
I really liked the style in which the story was written, and the two main characters Christina and Jenna were believable and like

I was honoured to be given this book to review and I'm so glad I accepted. This was by far the most gripping book I've read in a long time and for an author just starting out, it was an amazing start.

I totally loved what she did with the main characters and it became a book where I couldn't vision the end until I got there. Overall, the best thriller I've read this year and I certainly will be on the look out for the next book from this lady.

First of all I wanted to thank Ashley for sending me this book, it was incredibly sweet of you!
I actually liked this, I'm more a fan of psychological thrillers or ya, so it was a change. There were some parts where I thought the story was slightly slow but I found the twists definitely made up for that.
P.s. I never want to work in a hotel now

3.75 stars, I loved the story of this book, very gripping! My only downside was I'm not too into books with sexy scenes, I found myself a little uncomfortable at times but that is just my own personal preference.
The writing was amazing! As a debut novel Ashley should be extremely proud!!

It was an interesting start and development of the characters, and it really kept me wanted to read to the end! Definitely kept me engaged. A really good write, and made me think I was the one who was going crazy! And such a good ending. I didn't expect that! I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good thriller.

I was given this book in return for an honest review. I enjoyed this book and read it in a couple of sittings. Enjoyable characters, easy read.
Written as a first person, I liked that it changed characters halfway through.
Hoping there's a series of cure hotel books.

WOW! It's really the only word that comes to mind while reading this book as well as the first word that comes to mind when it's all over.

This book is definitely a solid 4.5 stars! I can not begin to tell you how much mystery and suspense and twists there are in this story and that is a great thing. I loved being kept on my toes the entire time while reading this book because just when you thought you knew where this story was headed, you were shocked into a twist that you NEVER saw coming.

Thoughtful and thought-provoking. Not at all the book I was expecting.

“The Cure Hotel” is a complex story about voyeurism gone wrong. This kind of story can be found at the blink of an eye on Amazon. What this book does differently however, is take the conclusion of the book and give it an intelligent meaning. Usually a killer will murder in a book, yet we seldom find out why they do it. It's sobering and totally satisfying to understand why this all happened and projects the book from an averag

Welcome to The Cure Hotel

Ashley is a new author to me and this is the first book I have read by her and what a great book. This story is the biggest head mashing what the hell no kind of book I have ever read. Think Dexter but in a hotel and a very very very disturbed young lady who thinks she is doing the right thing. This is Christina and Jenna's book even though it's the one story you will see what I mean once you read it. I couldn't put it down and read it in a few hours so enjoy this weird

I really loved this book, I was just going to read a few chapters to get me back to sleep, however 7am and I have stayed awake just to finish it.
You are taken on a journey of emotions with the two main characters and all the plot twists. It was so fast paced I could not stop reading especially from half way through, I did not expect what happened. However I feel like my journey was too short and would of absolutely loved more chapters. I will definitely have to read this book again and can't wai

I was given this book for an honest review. Whatever you expect to read in ‘The Cure hotel’ don’t! The cure hotel is full of twist and turns and I never could have imagined the ending at all! I usually like my standard stories where you know how it’s going to finish from the very start but this took me by surprise! I was hooked from the start, if I was to categorise the book in to three words it would be GRIPPING, SUSPENSEFUL and SHOCKING.
These aren’t usually the type of books I read but after t

I was sent this book to give an honest review of it. Too much sex stuff! That's just my personal opinion, it's just not what I'm into reading about. The story was good though, and written in a "diary" type way made the timelines more understandable.

A bit of a twist half way through that I was not expecting, turned the story around (for the better) and the ending was totally different to what I thought would happen.

All in all, a good read.

This book was one of the most gripping, unexpected thrillers I've ever read.
Not only does the author excite you and make you unable to put the book down, but she shocks and amazes you page after page.
I haven't read a book this quickly in a long time so it was definitely a nice, accomplishing feeling!
Thanks to the author for a lovely read.

This book was kindly given to me in exchange for an honest and fair review. Would have to give this book 3.5 stars out of 5.

*be aware there are spoiler alerts*


When I first started this book I was worried. It is not the type of book I would pick up or recommend to my reading group, HOWEVER I am so pleased I persevered.

The two main characters are fairly young and seem naive in their own ways. At first this grated on me a lot, especially as it was written in first person. I can't quite put my fing

This book is really hard to rate.

It's about a run down hotel that has some questionable staff and even more questionable clientele. That's pretty much all I can say without giving away spoilers.

I'm not sure, but I think this is the author's first book and it does show. It needs some editing, since there are some words and phrases in it that are repeated a lot, but not to an annoying extent.

The writing can be a little bit clunky at times, but the author has her own unique writing style that's re
