Inn Mates is a lively chronicle of two Boston corporate escapees who dreamt of owning a luxury inn in Bar Harbor, Maine. The inn was a passion, sometimes a prison, while serving five-star hospitality to a parade of guests who taught them lessons of gratitude, humility, love, and laughter in the midst of life’s hurricanes.

Hugely entertaining! Brightly written and full of eye-popping tales of human frailty and hubris, this memoir reads like a suspense novel. I couldn’t put it down.”

—Monica Wood, author of The One-in-a-Million Boy, When We Were the Kennedys, and Any Bitter Thing

Inn Mates is a beautifully written account of the innkeeping life. Hilarious and heartbreaking. Full of wisdom, wit, and whimsy. The best memoir I’ve read in a very very long time.”

—Claudia Hunter Johnson, author of Stifled Laughter: One Woman’s Story About Fighting Censorship, winner of the 2023 Best Book Awards in the Current Events category, and Hurtling Toward Happiness: A Mother and Teenage Son’s Road Trip From Blues to Bonding in a Really Small Car
