The Hummingbird Sanctuary~A Review

Hummingbird Sanctuary, a novel by Erin Zak, is a unique and enchanting love story times three. This book came along at exactly the right time and was just what I wanted and needed to read.

The novel is a character-driven story about three ladies who open a women-centered resort in a remote, but gorgeous area in Colorado. Besides being best friends for years, Olive Zyntarski, Eleanor Fitzwallace, and Harriet Marshall have something else in common…they’ve all lost their mothers. That is why they dedicated the resort to their moms and made the place for women to come, relax, and rejuvenate. Olive, Eleanor, and Harriet do have secrets they’ve kept for years. Those secrets could be revealed when a journalist and her two friends come to write a piece about the place and its owners in a major magazine.

This tale is told in first person through the eyes of the three main characters. That can sometimes be confusing if the POV is switched often as it is in this book. The author did a good job of keeping the reader informed about who they were seeing the story through. The setting is really important to the story, and it is well described. I want to find a real life resort like the Hummingbird Sanctuary. I could really use a vacation like that. The characters are what make this novel so special though. They are very true to life. The story is heartwarming with a fair amount of angst.

I’m very glad I got the chance to read Hummingbird Sanctuary. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
