A Poo Poo Kind of Morning
I tried not to look down the mouth of hell staring back at me from inside the glaringly pristine outer ceramic shell of the white throne, my throat catching, stomach doing half flips and a rather impressive rollover routine that would have gotten at least a 9.5 even from the Russian judges. Instead, I forced myself to smile and swallow and remind myself the elbow length yellow rubber gloves grasping the handle of the standard issue plunger were all that stood between me and Pooageddon.
Suck it up, Fee. Big girl panties and adulting and all that.
“At what point,” I waved the dripping plunger, wincing as droplets of yuck flew, “did I think owning a bed and breakfast was going to be glamorous and romantic?”
Fiona Fleming hasn’t lived in Reading, Vermont in over a decade, her escape from small town living leading her to New York City and a life of adventure. An adventure that has left her with no career, an ex who cheated on her and zero plans for the future. Her grandmother’s death grants her a new chance—inheriting Petunia’s, Iris Fleming’s bed and breakfast, seems like the ideal fresh start. But when Fee finds out ownership of the property Iris willed her might be in question, she’s drawn into the seedy underbelly of the cutest town in America after being singled out as the main suspect in a murder.

Bed and Breakfast
Ms Larsen has the ability to play with words that, at times, makes me feel like I need to rest before continuing my trek through the winding road. Not at all boring but delightfully verbose with an almost lilting melodic quality to it.
Fiona’s series of fact-finding adventures start with anticipation for high drama, followed by discovery or confession by the person of interest, who then leads her to the next person of interest. The process repeats and the investigation keeps rolling.
The final discovery is completely unexpected. Who would have guessed!
Bed breakfast and murder
Well written and fun to read. Lots of humor. Couldn’t put it down. Loved the pug.
