Publisher's Summary

Looking in your teenage daughter's purse is never a good idea.
After all, it ended up with Carolina Jessup opening a bed & breakfast for railroad fanatics in a tiny Georgia mountain town. Carolina knows all about, and hates, small towns. How did she end up leaving her wonderful Atlanta suburbs behind while making her husband's dreams come true?
The town bully (who wears a lavender skirt and white gloves), an endless parade of teenagers through her house, and everybody's talk about a ghost have Carolina looking for an escape, or at least a way to move back home. Instead, she's front and center for all of Chancey's small town gossip.
Unlike back home in the suburbs with privacy fences and automatic garage doors, everybody in Chancey thinks your business is their business and they all love the newest Chancey business. The B&B hosts a Senate candidate, a tea for the county fair beauty contestants, and railroad nuts who sit out by the tracks and record the sound of a train going by. Yet, nobody believes Carolina prefers the 'burbs.
Oh, yeah, and if you just ignore a ghost, will it go away?

Love small town life

What a great little book full of small time life at its richest. No bad language, no explicit sex scenes but still full of life and lessons. One your not embarrassed to listen to out loud in front of the whole family. Made my chores go by that much more pleasantly. Learned some train info too not bad. Narrator did a great job. I received this book at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

Ten hours well spent

I got this book via audiobook boom. This is small town Georgia at it's best. I laughed out loud many times. I also got mad, cried, and just thoroughly enjoyed looking at this slice of America. Anyone who has lived in a small town anywhere will relate to this story and if you have lived in a small town in the south you will start calling names of people who these characters remind you of. The narrator was very good and did a great job in helping you to understand the tones and emotions that were being portrayed. Small town, gossip, small town jealousy, small town love all came together to make for a wonderful story.
