Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I moved back to the South as an adult, it struck me as a book I'd read, but not really appreciated. With older eyes and ears, what I heard and saw struck me as sometimes absurd, often beautiful, and most of all, funny.
That's what I wrote in this book. But not only the differences found in the South. There's also the generational differences to explore and the differences between small town life and living in suburbs or a city are found worldwide.
Carolina is representative of so many women I have known. As a mom, with so many people to keep happy, it becomes easy to not say "yes" and not say "no", just maneuver things to end up how you want them. Problem is, sometimes things get out of control and people will take advantage of you trying to just slide by. Teenagers are notorious for taking advantage of non-committal moms, and so are small towns.
Hope you enjoy Chancey enough to come back as there are other books already in different stages of editing. Whether or not Carolina develops a backbone, whether her family manages to stay together, and can she figure out a way to get out of town and back to the suburbs are some of the questions you can look for answers to.
Thanks, Kay

From the Back Cover

Looking in your teenage daughter's purse is never a good idea.
After all, it ended up with Carolina Jessup opening a B&B for railroadbuffs in a tiny Georgia Mountain town. Carolina knows all about, and hates,small towns. How did she end up leaving her wonderful Atlanta suburbs behindwhile making her husband's dreams come true?
Unlike back home in the suburbs with privacy fences and automaticgarage doors, everybody in Chancey thinks your business is their business andthey all love the newest Chancey business. The B&B hosts a Senatecandidate, a tea for the County Fair beauty contestants, and railroad nuts whosit out by the tracks and record the sound of a train going by. Yet, nobodybelieves Carolina prefers the 'burbs.
And if you just ignore a ghost, will it go away?
