Ths author was new to me, but I’m very glad I found her. This is a really fun read, some romance, some sisterhood, and a lot of laughs.
Sisters Maxine and Janey really couldn’t be any more different. Maxine is a big flirt and very self centered, always looking out for herself. Janey is the “nice” one, married young, and one day her husband just disappeared completely, leaving everything behind. Janey isn’t sure if he’s dead or alive, and after a few years, she has rebuilt her life on her own. She owns a florist shop and works hard to support herself.
Maxine blows into town and expects Janey to put her up, which she does, but it grows old quickly. Maxine is a slob, so when a job comes up as a nanny for a great looking, wealth,y glamorous photographer -widower in town, Janey pushes Maxine to go for it. One look is all it takes for Maxine to decide not only will she take the job, she’ll get a husband out of the deal, too.
Of course things don’t go exactly as planned for either sister, or their mother for that matter, but there is a lot of fun to be had in the trying. If you are looking for a quick summer read, look no further than this thoroughly enjoyable romp.
