Synopsis

No Room at the Inn is part of The Year of Short Stories and is one of several digital shorts released to celebrate the publication of Jeffrey Archer’s magnificent seventh collection, Tell Tale.

Taken from Jeffrey Archer's sixth collection of short stories, And Thereby Hangs a Tale, comes No Room at the Inn, an irresistible, witty and ingenious short read.

Richard has spent an idyllic month in Italy, soaking up the sun and the rich culture – even though his girlfriend decided at the last minute not to accompany him. Finding himself in the beautiful historic town of Monterchi, he spends his last few euros on a simple yet delicious meal. He is recommended the Albergo Piero for his stay that night. When he is told they have no rooms, the beautiful receptionist tells him to wait a moment – there might just be a room after all . . .

Be sure to look out for more from The Year of Short Stories collection, including The Endgame and In the Eye of the Beholder.
