Comedy: One year after inheriting The Catch & Keep, an old St Thomas Manor Home, we return to find the sage island woman, Nevilina, still cheerfully helping Bo run the guest house. Bo has had quite a year, missing her old friend and life, while learning how fit in and get things done, island style.
As they prepare for a wedding in the guest house garden, they are hit with a couple of Nature's tropical surprises...a small earthquake to really shake things up and the news a big storm is headed for the island. But more urgently... they are running out of time to renew Bo's old car's inspection sticker and a mouse shows that he likes cake. A lot.
Their guest's misguided agendas and learning why the Catch & Keep has had its young ghost for several generations just adds to the mele' of a few days of vacation in Paradise.
Welcome, again, to the Catch & Keep, where everyone is just...for a bit...goin' ta come back.
