About this Book

The B&B Is Open for Business!
Shhh…

Excitement is in the air in Goose Creek, Kentucky, as the small town prepares to celebrate its 150th anniversary and the veterinarian’s upcoming wedding. But trouble is brewing in this provincial paradise…

Al Richardson agreed to open a B&B with his wife after his retirement in two years, but Millie secretly invites some guests to stay for the wedding. She plans to be the most gracious Southern hostess—until a tumble down the stairs leaves her unprepared for their quirky and cantankerous first guest.

Meanwhile, the town’s anniversary plans are in a state of chaos as the celebration committee scrambles to raise the necessary funds—an effort spearheaded by a “newcomer,” which ruffles the townsfolk’s feathers.

Goose Creek has lasted 150 years. Can it survive the next month?

My Review

The story picks up not long after the previous as Susan and Justin’s wedding. There are some fun antics by more than Aunt Lorna that keeps everyone on their toes.

In addition to the crazy characters we’ve met in earlier stories in this installment we meet the well meaning, overbearing Aunt. To say she is one you’ll love to hate would be an understatement. Okay, maybe hate is too strong a word, but she is a “piece of work.”

Al and Millie are working hard to make Goose Creek’s first B&B a success and finding it an adventure. Then, of course, there are the Thatchers, the city’s celebration of 150 years, and a broken wrist. Along with the laughs there are some touching moments especially between Millie and Lulu as Millie came to understand her a little better.

This is a great book for people who are looking for a relaxing read. No heavy message or intense plot. Great writing that is wholesome. It is part of the series but I think one could read this book easily as a stand alone.Disclaimer: I received a free copy from the publisher. No review, positive or otherwise, was required—all opinions are my own.

BTW…

Book 4 is currently available FOR FREE

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
