    An interesting tale of a young man trying to get his life straight His father passed away two years prior, and he has a hard time trying to be his replacement as he believes his mother wishes for this His sister s unwanted preganancy also puts large stresses on his overly strained family My favourite part was his meeting of the nun on his bus ride to his mother s house Sister Frances was funny and was nothing like the stereo typical sisters in the habits.

    Entertaining debut novel that is good for some light, humorous reading While I enjoyed it, it does often read like a debut novel from an inexperienced author The plot appears forced at times making the book feel kind of clunky at times Most of the characters are quite well developed but sometimes not totally convincing By the end of the book, I found the humorous aspects somewhat drowned out by melodrama I feel the writer was trying to write a book withemotional heft than it actuall Entertaining debut novel that is good for some light, humorous reading While I enjoyed it, it does often read like a debut novel from an inexperienced author The plot appears forced at times making the book feel kind of clunky at times Most of the characters are quite well developed but sometimes not totally convincing By the end of the book, I found the humorous aspects somewhat drowned out by melodrama I feel the writer was trying to write a book withemotional heft than it actually contains.However, for a fun book to pass the time on holidays say, it is well worth a read

    Although the subtitle implied that the book was organized around the protagonist s efforts to renovate her old house in a small New England town, in fact the renovation comes in only occasionally, and the writer does a good job of exploring the main characters relationships and the relationships and behaviours of people in the town, and the plot is actually pretty good I liked this one enough to go looking for others in the series.

  9. Sheryl says:

    Cute book about a young irish man Some parts are very funny some are deeper his mother mourning her husband, his sister and the mother looking to him to be the man of the house Short and good.

    It was okay, I didn t find it particularly special or thrilling.oh, it also contains some instances of the c word.Read some of the other reviews before deciding on trying this book.
