If unfortunate events can be funny, they are in this book. The series of crazy experiences that Peg Savage has when she and husband, Clark, move to Key West are the funniest but not to her. Of course, her husband departs for a consulting job in Cuba almost as soon as they arrive in Key West leaving Peg to fend for herself and her dog. Peg has everything happen to her, compounding her lack of desire to even be there: stranded with over forty-two bridges to cross to get to the mainland. Not an awful distance to travel but interminable if, like Peg, you have an abject fear of bridges. Peg does meet some friendly people (and haints/ghosts) that help make life more bearable until Clark returns.
