    I am so happy that I don't have to write this book!

    I have been an Innkeeper and now an Inn Consultant for 15 years. One of the things on my to do list was to put together all of my thoughts and blog articles into a book on Innkeeping which updated all of the prior ones that are no longer available. Now I am just thrilled that Mary White has written the definitive work on Innkeeping, and, of course, now I don't have to do it.We tell our prospective innkeepers in our Seminars on Innkeeping a lot of the information that Mary has compiled, but here it is all in one place and easily accessible to everyone. Nothing left out and a clear understanding that Innkeeping is a 24/7 job with a lot of sacrifices. It is not retirement, and it is not Bob Newhart in a cardigan sweater. Mary lays it all out for the reader, clearly and with all of the downsides, as well as the joys of sharing your lives as innkeepers with some of the greatest guests that you could every hope to meet.

    0 5/5 Marena - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: "I've Always Wanted to Run a Bed & Breakfast": THE SECRETS TO STARTING AND RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL B&B (Paperback) This was really helpful to me as initial research around considering running an Inn of some sort. Practical and philosophical at the same time. Hit the mark with me. I was so inspired I googled the Inn that the Bengivengo's ran, however was disappointed to discover that their Inn is no longer in business. It left me curious as to what happened, and a bit more anxious about moving forward. Nevertheless, the information and the message the authors communicate in the book seems relevant still. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 26, 2015

    Great Cozy Mystery!

    I grew up on Agatha Christie, and ‘cozy’ was her middle name. Now, this cozy mystery is not set in St Mary Mead, but instead it takes place in a small town in Georgia, where even today you can find turns in a country road that take you back in place and time. That is the one thing I loved about this story. It transported me.I have said that before both in reviews and in my blogs. I love a story that can take me to a different time and place. I love stories that assume an easy pace, that have humor, atmosphere, and engaging characters. This story has all those.Although the setting is a present-day small town in Georgia, the feeling is all down-south, old-world magnolias and veranda breezes. The character of Miss Vivee reminds me so much of another southern matriarch I very much love, Miz Demetrice in C.L. Bevill’s Bubba novels. Miss Vivee made me laugh with her antics and her ‘lies.’Now, this is not another twisted,... 5/5 Zeecé Lugo (San Sebastian, Puerto Rico) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Cozy Mystery Indeed!

    Bed & Breakfast Bedlam (A Logan Dickerson Cozy Mystery Book 1) by Author Abby L. VandiverI very much enjoyed this good, clean, and unpredictable mystery novel. Logan Dickerson is a young archaeologist who is following in her mother's footsteps. However, she has a long way to go before achieving her mother's great reputation and level of expertise. Logan decides she wants to make a name for herself by uncovering proof that the Maya may have once migrated to Georgia..."at the Track Rock Gap to be exact". These ruins are considered U.S. government property with obvious signs stating that there is no trespassing allowed. These signs seem to have the reverse effect when it comes to Logan.Although, usually a person that knows how to follow rules, Logan decides to take a gamble and cross into the "KEEP OUT" turf. While there she gets caught red-handed but manages to escape or so she thinks.
