Abstract:

"Miranda, a smart, raucous and bolshy young woman, splurges her entire inheritance on a pile of sagging architecture in the Bay of Islands, sight unseen, simply because it bears her name. One step ahead of bankruptcy, the now not-so-proud owner of the old Miranda Bay Sanatorium, must turn her mistake into a profitable beach resort or lose everything. She knows little about running a business, and depends heavily on cousin Pansy's expertise. In her frantic drive for success, Miranda succumbs to her booze stash, hires a motley collection of workers, including the local drunk, to help clean up the property, and the guests trickle in, definitely not the A-list types she's envisaged."--Publisher description.
