Hotel heiress Fair Finley has issues. She oversees a posh Los Angeles hotel for her traveling parents, which is stressful enough, but she’s been tasked with a real stomach-twister: She must buy, or somehow take, the failing motel next door and its lovely, shimmery swimming pool. How she’ll get the pool from the handsome cousins who own it, and how she’ll keep a cagey hotel mogul from snatching her own hotel and making it his own, and how she’ll figure out why so many strange things are suddenly afoot, are at the heart of “Stay Awhile: Wilfair Book 3.” Oh, and one last little matter? Not falling in love with one of the motel cousins is on the nearly-20-year-old heiress’s already overloaded to-do list, too. Not falling in love quite yet, anyway.
“Stay Awhile” follows Fair, Gomery and Monty Overbove, and Fair’s best pal Sutton Von Hunt as they attempt to find out where the cousins’ mothers might be and why buildings seem to be moving under their own power. Several weird discoveries are made during the quartet’s mountain road trip, leading the young hotelier to land on a major decision, and announcement, about the motel’s pool and the futures of her two nice neighbors. How she arrives at her life-changer of a decision, and the journeys she and her friends embark on, are in the light-hearted mix. As is Gomery Overbove, who is about a billion times more important in the heiress’s mind than 24,500 gallons of chlorinated water and some old diving board.
