Thanksgiving at the Inn by Tim Whitney

A coming of age story filled with quirky characters, "Thanksgiving at the Inn" marks the debut of author Tim Whitney. Meet Heath the Third and his father, Junior, as they stumble into the true inheritance they receive from Heath Wellington, Senior.

Expecting money to help them get more comfortable in their lifestyle of choosing, Heath and his father are shocked by the terms of Senior's will: manage his bed-and-breakfast with courtesy and skill for three months.

With their relationship already strained to the breaking point, Heath doesn't hold out much hope for improvement as he and his father embark on this trip to fulfill Senior's wishes. Even more, he doesn't expect his dad to ever open the lime green envelope that contains his grandfather's apology.

But surprises are in store for Heath: some good, some not-so-good. But all designed to turn his life into something worth living. "Thanksgiving at the Inn" was a pleasant surprise, although I could have lived without the mild language sprinkled throughout the story.

The characters were all interesting and colorful, and the interaction between Heath and his father was vivid and real. I do wish Mr. Whitney had included a message of faith in his story, but the message is there if you look closely enough at the story.

In all, I'll give "Thanksgiving at the Inn" three out of five bookmarks, with an apple pie as a charm.

Great, NOW I'm hungry!!

Happy Reading!
