Maisy Collins is celebrating her
forty-sixth birthday. The divorced mother of twins has no
plans for the big event, since her kids have left for college.
When plumbing problems arise, she calls Fullservice Fixit to
come and take care of the problem.
Thirty-one-year-old Dean Martini co-owns
Fullservice Fixit with his father. Heís intrigued by Maisy,
and knows that sheís checking him out, which he finds
flattering. Dean also works for a friendís escort service, and
heís delighted to find Maisyís name as his date for that
Maisyís friends chipped in and got her a
date for dinner at a fancy restaurant and dancing afterwards.
When Dean shows up, Maisy is flabbergasted. They have a great
time, and Dean wants to continue seeing her. But there is the
little problem of a 15-year-age difference. Maisy has to come
to terms with her feelings, and with the fact that her
daughter doesnít take kindly to her motherís new friend.
Will they be able to brave the waters, or
will a permanent relationship be one thing that Dean canít
I loved this book, and the way Ms. Storm
drew the characters and their interaction. Maisy is still
reeling from the effects of a divorce several years ago. It
was great to watch Dean coax her out of her shell and make her
realize that they loved one another. I had more than a twinge
of jealousy when the delicious Dean was with Maisy, helping
her to gain confidence and learn to live again.
At the end, I wanted to slap Maisyís
daughter. But her realistic and emotional reactions to her
motherís relationship added great tension to the book..
I love Ruby Stormís writing. Her
characters are so vivid and fun that you canít help but enjoy
every word of her books. Mr. Fullservice is
definitely a Joyfully Recommended Read for me.
