Lisa gives an overview of the book:

Southern belle Leelee Satterfield leaves her beloved Memphis to follow her husband’s pipe dream: to manage a quaint Vermont inn. But when they arrive, young daughters and ancient Yorkie in tow, they discover pretty fast that there’s a truckload of things nobody tells you about Vermont until you live there.
