When the queen of the tabloids, Juliette Cadbury, decides to film a movie in Fort Rosalie, Mississippi, local Tourist Bureau executive Mary Dell Hoskins is given the unenviable task of setting up a whirlwind inspection tour of the town’s three bed-and-breakfasts – only one of which can win the right to host the outrageous actress and her hunky actor boyfriend during their three-month location shoot. All genteel hell soon breaks loose as a local ladies’ group organizes a protest against the “Hollywood morality” of the live-in couple, and the competition among the quirky bed-and-breakfast owners takes on a life of its own. Sparks fly, tempers flare, and all sorts of people fall in and out of love as Hollywood’s fast-lane meets Deep South hospitality.
“A hilarious tale of eccentric personalities, political correctness, the tabloid industry, and Southern hospitality sure to delight those fans of all things Southern.”—N.E. Mississippi Daily Journal
