Bitsy's Bait BBQ Author: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... more » 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 and 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 challenge, only this time it's Katy who proves that she, too, can solve a problem.« less
I had never read this author before and thought this sounded like a good read. I don't usually read books of this genre, as I tend to stick with mysteries. The story revolves around two sisters, who couldn't be more opposite of each other. One of them buys a bait & bbq business and the other decides to stay on & help her. The small town and its residents are charming. It reminds me of the town my grandma lived in for many years. I enjoyed this story very much.
Emma has always been the big sister looking after her younger sister Katy. Now Katy has bought a B&B on Ebay somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Once they are just getting settled, along comes Katy's ex-husband and mother-in-law.
This book is a good reflection on the people and interactions in a small town. The characters are well-developed in this novel. By the end you feel as if you know each of them. I enjoyed this book by Ms. Morsi, although some of the plot was a bit predictable.
Every now and then you order a book that you think you might 'like,' and then are pleasantly surprised to find that you love it! A thoroughly enjoyable story about two sisters who think they are buying a bed & breakfast on a lake, only to find that it's really a 'bait and barbeque' place. A very enjoyable read. I liked it A LOT and was glad I ordered it!
Delightful story about two sisters, the youngest of whom has a 5 year old boy, who purchase, sight unseen, what they think is a Bed and Breakfast, but in fact, turns out to be the only restaurant (and side revenue from the adjacent bait shop). The small town feel is reminiscent of Debbie Macomber style setting, and the plot, though predictable, is comforting. I highly recommend this book as light reading for feel good finish.
