This book is very grandma friendly. The reviews on Amazon and the blurbs on the backs of the books use the words "cozy" and "gentle" over and over. While it's true that this book is squeaky clean fare, it's a lot of fun for the bookish sort. Homer and Virgil are fraternal twin brothers in their 40's who own a bed and breakfast on a Canadian Island that is basically a reader's getaway. People show up for their vacation with their to be read pile and dig in. The book loosely ties together the stories of the two brothers and several of their guests along with book lists and lots of reader humor. A fun quick read for those in the "reader's club."
