It's summertime in Honeysuckle, and everyone is lazing in the shade with a tall glass of lemonade. Everyone except Raelynn Pendleton. She's stuck working at the local store to make the rent while her no-good ex-husband lives it up with a floozy.
When she inherits a Victorian house, Raelynn jumps at the chance to turn her life around. How can she afford the upkeep on such a huge place? Simple. She'll run it as a hotel. Problem is, she has no experience and the decor dates back to the Dark Ages. She'll have to use her secret talent for turning junk into treasure or she'll never snag an overnight guest.
But before the new Honeysuckle Hotel even opens for business, Raelynn discovers the body of a young woman in the garden. As a newcomer in town, Raelynn is blamed for the murder. She's fired from her job, which could mean she'll lose the house. The only way to save Honeysuckle Hotel is to find the real killer - with or without the sexy Sheriff Kent Klein.
One way or another, Honeysuckle will be buzzing.

Being from KY and specifically Lexington (as mentioned in the book) I find this book to be so true of small towns and how they react to outsiders.
Had fun reading and look forward to reading the next book.
This is a great book to listen to on vacation!
I did so by the pool and chuckled so hard many times.
Really liked this book
She can do a great job of trash to treasures and I did enjoy that portion, but didn't much like this chic...just kept waiting for her to die.
hang a homemade sign that says hotel and you,re in business? the state might have something to say about that. Did you really get a degree?
this character is too stupid to live. she doesn't seem to know anything about anything
the townspeople. I'm originally from a small town, but most of us were nice, ordinary people - the people in this town - all of them - are nasty.
