Dina Demille is by all appearances a fine young woman who runs a quiescent Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town. She also owns a small Shih Tzu named Beast.
By all counts, she should be a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem is what to serve her guests for breakfast.
But Dina does not have a regular bed and breakfast.
