Abstract:

The adventures during a couple's year of renting a cottage in Palm Beach are recounted in this memoir that reveals the unexpected side of living in an exclusive island town. The day they arrive, they are greeted by the police and at the end of their stay they are treated by paramedics--even in the time between, surprises abound around all corners. From foxes to Ferraris and frozen iguanas to parrots and parades, this hilarious and engrossing story not only paints a picture of life in Palm Beach that most people--even the billionaire mansion owners--never experience, but also chronicles how a year.
