Bitsy's Bait & BBQ

Bitsy's Bait & BBQAs a general rule I usually refrain from doing book reviews. It's not that I don't like to share my opinion about a book, but it is just that ... my opinion. I would hate to give my thoughts on a book, a plot or an author's writing style, only to sway someone from picking up the same book. A book that, had it not been for my one-sided view, could hold a storyline or characters that they absolutely love. So, instead of giving my personal take on this book I thought I would share the blurb and link so you can judge for yourself.

I will however say that I tend to read dramas, thrillers, chillers, and mysteries but this "feel-good" story full of true to life characters caught my attention. Wouldn't the phrase, "I just bought us a B&B on eBay!" peak your curiosity?

The blurb found on the back of Bitsy's Bait & BBQ written by Pamela Morsi:

While Emma Collins wonders who in their right mind would use her hard-won divorce settlement to purchase a bed-and-breakfast down in the Ozarks, her free-spirited sister Katy fantasizes dreamily about how this move to a small town will be just the thing for her six-year-old son, Josh.

And, as usual, Emma is right. But it is not until they drive to Warbler Lake, Missouri, to take over Bitsy's B&B that they realize just how right she's been. In this part of the country, B&B stands for Bait & BBQ! The girls know little enough about running a bed-and-breakfast, but a bait-and-BBQ?

With their money and futures sunk into a run-down, roadside rattletrap, the girls have no choice but to roll up their sleeves and get to work. But as they settle in and get to know the difference between fatheads, night crawlers, mealworms and shiners, no one is more surprised than they are when they actually get the place up and running.

But trouble is brewing. Katy's ex-husband is having second thoughts about the custody arrangements for Josh, and he fully intends to get him back. With the prospect of losing the little boy, the sisters face another challenger, only this time it's Katy who proves that she, too, can solve a problem.
