WELCOME TO FLANAGANS, the first in a new series set in 20th century London and Sweden marking a new departure for the 800,000-copy bestselling author Åsa Hellberg.
Welcome to Flanagans, where anything can, and will happen! Step into the jet set lifestyle of the 1960’s, where aristocrats and business men meet, and where the absence of an invitation to one of Linda Lansing’s glamorous and legendary parties, could mean your social downfall.
But deep down on the inside, Linda doesn’t feel all that glamorous. As a woman and as a Swede, she is an outsider in this world. She has struggled to rise from her humble beginning on the Swedish West coast, to becoming the owner and head of the most prestigious hotel in London: The Flanagans. Her begrudging cousins still plot her downfall, and she is starting to wonder if it’s really worth all the sacrifices. Is this happiness? Is this enough?
Downstairs, in the kitchens, we meet Elinor and Emma who dream about a better life. But when both Elinor and Emma meet charming strangers, their lives and everything they have fought for will be turned upside-down in a dramatic turn of events.
This brand new trilogy is centred on the Flanagans hotel in London, beginning in the 1960’s, continuing in the 1980’s in the second book with the dramatic final in the 2010’s. Under crystal chandeliers, on carpeted floors and in-between wood panelled walls, we’ll get to know the women who in three generations run the hotel, each one with their own hardships, heartbreak, successes, drama, and challenges that come with their own era. The new series marks a new beginning for the authorship.
One woman, one hotel, everything to play for. Welcome to Flanagans.
