Maggie Davis is a middle-aged widow and heiress of a grand Victorian mansion built in 1910 by her grandfather in Madison County, Nebraska. The stately old manor, which she shares with her spunky nine-year-old daughter Jenna, also serves as a bed-and-breakfast inn to a once regular, but now transitory clientele. Maggie’s spinster neighbor delights in keeping everyone on guard with her opinionated tirades, but she is frequently reined in by an elderly, equally forthright house guest who has recently become a permanent dweller at the old manor.

Gentle-spirited Maggie finds herself struggling with the painful memories of her husband’s tragic death, while acknowledging the stirrings in her heart associated with a new house guest—a man of few words and quiet wisdom. On the heels of a sudden death in the community, Maggie must also contend with a scandalous scheme to swindle her out of her property, leaving more than one family member caught up in suspicion.

In The House Guest, the kitchen table is the epicenter of lively, colorful dialogue, where no subject matter is off limits. Set against a backdrop of humor, tragedy, and love, this lyrical novel culminates in a most surprising and unexpected manner.
