Having her feet up and crocheting with a G&T in hand and a Labrador by her side was Stephanie's romantic dream of life in a Bed and Breakfast.
It didn't quite turn out that way. Come Sleep With Me is an insight into the shenanigans that happen behind the scenes in Bed and Breakfast land.
It's about a laundry mountain, Roman Centurions, Chintz, geraniums and an Orangutan rehabilitation centre in Indonesia.
Woven into the mix are stories of humanity and adventure across the globe.
Stephanie's adventures in B&B land began after many years of travelling and living out of a backpack, including a two-week holiday in Bermuda which turned into a 16-year stay.
When she returned to the UK and whilst watching a game of rugby in Bath, she spontaneously decided to buy a Bed and Breakfast.
This isn't a book about how to run a Bed and Breakfast business.
It isn't a book about travelling. It's a book about life and the wonderful ways in which humans interact.
