HOW HARD CAN IT BE?? A PERSONAL MEMOIR
Bobby Hutchinson, a best selling Harlequin romance writer, decides to open a B&B in Vancouver, B.C.
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.
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.”
˃˃˃ HUMOR, A LITTLE TRAGEDY AND MANY LIFE LESSONS. (But mostly humor.)
What does a hostess do when a dog rips the bathroom apart? Or gerbils reproduce in the attic?
Make wonderful breakfasts and keep on keeping on.
˃˃˃ SURE FIRE BREAKFAST RECIPES
Lots of other recipes as well, guaranteed to turn out. And some advice that may or may not work, but what can you lose by trying?
I’d been running a B&B in Vancouver, and it wasn’t until I moved to my home town and opened another one that I decided to write about the experience. I’ve only recently closed the second version of the Blue Collar, because I wanted to get back to writing full time. The Vancouver version is filled with true accounts of the weird and wonderful people who came and stayed, and my even more weird and wonderful dear friends.
