- A small town inn,
mayhem, and misadventure in
Maine, unforgettable characters,

and hilarious debut novel follows the trials and tribulations
of the hotel's proprietor, the affable yet bungling, brother

player for the real-life rock band moe., John weaves a series
of interconnected stories filled with misadventure, haunting
tales, and unforgettable characters.
