Publisher's Summary

Bobby Hutchinson, a best-selling Harlequin writer, decides to open a B & B in Vancouver, BC, when sales of romance novels falter. Despite never having stayed in a B & B and knowing absolutely nothing about running one, she jumps right in. Strange people from nearby and halfway around the world arrive at her home with their stories and struggles, not to mention their baggage, psychological and otherwise.
Each chapter is peppered with a humor, a little tragedy and many life lessons (but mostly humor). There are sure-fire breakfast recipes guaranteed to turn out even if the cook is half asleep. In explaining why she opened a B & B, she says, "I was far too old for prostitution, the only other job I could think of which might net enough to pay the mortgage."

Cheers to Book II soon (fingers crossed)

What does Randye Kaye bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The tone of her voice. It gave me a much better picture of the way it really was. A B&B run by a regular, everyday, humble and hardworking woman who makes the very best of what presents itself.

Any additional comments?

I felt myself reeling in anguish over Louie. Because I had impatient feelings about him as well, I felt so disappointed in myself after that sad night. He was alone. That really hurt my heart.
I was uplifted however, after Sammy was sought after by the-perhaps, unknowing family. I'd like to think he mellowed out. (smile)
I sure hope the next book is being written! This is the stuff that inspires many to make lemonade. Really tasty lemonade. That the author can make the best of any given situation is something we can all learn from. I love how she shares the stuff life hands her even when it isn't pretty. That's real life.
