Nora Roberts opens a Romantic Inn

Thanks to The Rap Sheet for news on Nora Roberts new Literary-Lovers Inn.
Nora Roberts, best selling romance and suspense author, has opened the Inn BoonsBoro. She has named the rooms of her hotel after married detectives. Roberts says of the Nick and Nora room, "It's a comfortable room that blends sleek art deco and fussy Hollywood glamour," she says, "which strikes me as very Nick and Nora Charles." The room's smoky walls, chocolate ceiling, crystal light fixtures and mirrored night stands, she says, would ensure "they'd be very comfortable and happy here."

The Charleses are one of seven fictional couples who inspired the Inn's decor and romantic atmosphere. Read more. There's also a video of the Inn on the site. Roberts's husband owns the nearby Tattered Cover Bookshop, one room of which is devoted to Roberts' novels. Can't imagine they all fit in one room!

When I was in Ann Arbor a few years ago for a mystery symposium, I stayed at a small B&B that had different rooms dedicated to different mystery genre. I stayed in the Mystery Room, of course.
