CPA Gus Hollister should have listened to his grandmother, Rose Blossom. Elaine, the woman he married, is a world-class gold digger. He comes home from work to find that Elaine has taken his beloved Porsche, his bank accounts, and his house. Gus has a few suitcases, an old, beat-up Volkswagen, and Wilson, the dog. Homeless, he retreats to his grandmother’s house, where he grew up. But the woman who raised him turns him away, saying that since he deliberately ignored her warnings, she isn’t going to bail him out. It’s a long, tricky road to redemption as Gus tries to prove to his grandmother and her stubborn twin sisters that he’s a wiser man, and from here on out, he’ll pay heed to their suggestions. With its cast of feisty seniors and spunky, resourceful women, Michael’s latest is sure to capture the hearts of its readers, even while tickling their funny bones. --Shelley Mosley

Even more perplexing is that the exwife is dealt with by the author stating the ex wife married a Matoff wannabe and ended up having many problems. However, this is stated in one simple sentence with no following of her life or her experiences. The beginning of the book follows these experiences so this statement seems like a rip off because we have no real knowledge of her life and how it ended u this way. nogtehr is sue is that the exwife suddenly sends a text to Gus telling him he can have the house and she will leave the key for him. We do know that she had some issues with her attorney, but this is such a huge switch from her hard driving goal to get control of Gus' assets that it seems like a cheap solution to a problem the author created and then could not resolve for the reader.
Also, the ending chapter seems to come after a 2 yr period of time has elapsed and is very unsatisfying because we are not made aware of any of the details of the romance between Gus and Jill and how it evolves. We hear about their firs date and then she is helping Gus' relatives run their business and then they are getting married with no details.
The last couple of books I've read from Fern Michaels seemed to lack the detail and plot development and evolution of her previous books so thery were a bit disappointing, but this one is a complete MISS. I hope that Fern gets back on track because I have enjoyed the majority of her books, but find the last few to be missing the mark, aka details don't seem to build and gel and the book endings wrap up too quickly and the reader is left feeling cheated.
This book has it all...feisty grandmother and aunts who refuse to be ignored. An elder controlled business that gives other elders who have been forgotten by their relatives a purpose and better living arrangements for some of the elders. The gold digger wife who uses spells that she has purchased from the Blossom Sisters' business against them and her husband. And there is a duckling that turns into a swan.
If you like cozy, feel good stories, I recommend this book to you.
Spelling could be better. Spell check doesn't always take the place of a good proof reader.
