The Happy Hammock

The Happy Hammock

Author(s): Kathrin Lake

Location(s): Mexico

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs, Comedy, Romance

Era(s): Contemporary

Kathrin, a foodie writer stuck in a corporate job, bonds with John through a mutual hatred of the cold. They discover paradise in a small town in Mexico and after three days naively buy a house there… or did they?

After months of foul ups, they struggle to survive as a couple, while falling for the charm and characters of the town. In process, Kathrin accidentally starts a “Mecca” for writers and they both learn what had been missing in their lives.

Their adventures and misadventures include:
– Lost in the outback hills of Mexico after taking the wrong bus
– A Christmas (Navidad) miracle or two
– A competition with neighbors over siesta sex
– Close encounters with tropical insects
– Shopping for a Mexican wedding dress in a small town (very funny)
– A brush with the queen of the Dead (Day of the Dead)
– Unexpected friends and unexpected villains…and inadvertently becoming part of a Mexican circus act… to name some of the trouble that Kathrin and her man, John live through as they laugh, love and learn in Mexico.
Based on a true story.
