The Mavis Garner Bed and Breakfast is not the sort of place you'd find on a freeway or even a map.

During his stay he's fined eight times, dragged across town by the local watchdog and fired from his job. What else could he do but fall in love with one of the proprietors! When his boss shows up and takes over the story, he's treated to scenes from Shakespeare, slipshod seances and a witch who can't keep her hexes straight.
