The first quiet hour of the morning, with a cup of coffee for herself and the delicate scent of vanilla muffins rising from the oven, was always the best part of the day, Camryn thought. This peaceful time of poking about in her kitchen, before the guests started coming downstairs, before the day had a chance to get frantic, was the nicest thing about running a bed-and-breakfast inn.
But all good and peaceful things ended sooner or later, she told herself philosophically as a buzzer announced that the muffins were done. She pushed her mug aside and hummed as she arranged a china cup and saucer on a lace-lined tray and filled a small pot with freshly brewed coffee.
