Synopsis: Minnesota-born lawyer Jeff and his partner, Dean, enjoyed a successful life in London. Yet they wanted a change, so they sold their house, packed the dogs and moved to the resort town of Hayward, where they acquired an ice cream shop, West’s Hayward Dairy, and started a bed and breakfast, McCormick House Inn. The book shares the ups and downs of their first year in business and how the traditions and the stories of those who built the town helped Jeff and Dean adjust to the rhythm of life in their new home.
