Author of THE RED PRIEST'S ANNINA and JAZZ GIRL
This is the story of a couple of professionals who decide to leave the hustle and bustle of New York City to open a bed and breakfast near the city. The first issue is that they don't share the excitement about the decision. It's the husband, Dan, who being sick with his corporate job who wants out and into the entrepreneurship live. On the other hand, his wife Laina, is very happy with her career and the prospect of growth, but in an unexpected turn of events those prospects are cut off and in a swift decision she agrees to move to Cape May to open up the B&B.
And you would think that the business went bad or something and that's the issue. No. Dan, who was the one who wanted the B&B decides to be the entertainment director ( just to titled him something) and leave all the hard work to his wife. I admit that for the large part of the book I was super angry with Dan and wanted to see him suffer greatly. The author's heart is better than mine and she did put him through some hurdles, but I wanted a little bit more.hahaha!
The kicker to this story is that Laina has a cousin, Tia. Who decides to invite her to Las Vegas so that she can catch a break from the life at the B&B. Laina accepts not only because she needs the time away, but because her inconsiderate husband needs to experience how much she does and how much of him is required to run the B&B.
All those who know about my reviews know that I hate to spoil the fun, but let me just say this; I literally read the last two chapters with my mouth open.
This is a great book to read by a poolside or the beach, when you want some lighthearted reading. Good job Mary Anne Benedetto. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Most of the plot-lines were predictable - almost to an embarrassing extent. I finished it, but it definitely wasn't one of my favorite reads.
The entire Las Vegas scenario was just stupid.
