Caught Read-Handed

by Sandra Murphy

Sassy and Bridgy run Read ‘Em and Eat, a café/bookstore in Fort Meyers Beach, Florida–with the help of Miguel in the kitchen, of course. Each of the tables is named for a famous author with quotes, photos, and trivia on each one. There are several book clubs that meet there too, with Sassy acting as moderator. Fort Meyers is a small enough town that residents know each other and are always willing to pitch in and help. The tourists keep the economy going.
