Operatic Divas and Naked Irishmen: An Innkeeper's Tale by Nancy R. Hinchliff

Into the Wild

Read Operatic Divas and Naked Irishmen: An Innkeeper's Tale Online Free - In this humorous and engaging account of how an admittedly asocial retired school teacher reinvents herself as an Innkeeper, the author candidly writes about her challenging twenty year journey of self-discovery. In 1994, at the age of 64 with no business experience and very little start-up money, she buys a turn-of-the-century mansion in Louisville, Kentucky on a whim and turns it into a charming Victorian Inn. Through sheer tenacity, she learns the business while successfully negotiating with maintenance men to city officials, fire codes to blackout shades, and housekeepers to hundreds of guests.

The reader is drawn into that journey as the author deftly wields her way around cantankerous contractors, harrowing housekeepers and no shortage of strange and interesting visitors and events. Through her collected stories, the savvy and humorous business woman gives the reader a personal, in-depth, and honest look at what it's like to be an Innkeeper and still retain your sense of humor.
