All's set for a great time with nothing to mar the horizon, despite Connie's retirement, Himself believing he's fully in charge, and Joan aching for the day she has nothing better to do than twiddle her thumbs in front of a blazing fire with a good book and contented cats.

It doesn't turn out that way. BT sabotages the business. Connie is missed beyond measure and Himself has ideas well beyond his station while the cats do their utmost to destroy the harmony by taking exception to certain guests, and enforcing their belief that children, expecially the grandchildren, should not be allowed over The Sheiling doorstep. More laugh-out-loud tales from the pen of Joan Campbell mixed with some good advice for running, or staying at, a successful B& B.
