After an attempt at doing some jobs herself, Lizzie hires a handyman named Riley to help. Oh, and what a man he is! Lizzie has a boyfriend named Scott but the man seems to have a commitment phobia. He’s also bossy and treats Lizzie like a child. Lizzie actually works for him but now, she will be working from home.
Riley and Lizzie find some old letters, a photo, and an engagement ring that had been hidden under the floor boards in one of the rooms in the house. The letters had been written to Avis from Will. Avis owned the house before she died and now Lizzie is determined to find a member of Avis’ family and give them the ring.
But, someone appears to be watching Lizzie and has broken into her house. This makes her feel creepy and she stays at Riley’s for a few nights while it gets investigated. As the story progresses, we find that this is not just a simple case of breaking into someone’s home because they mean serious business.
We meet her Grandma Mabel who has a sex drive that’s going strong in her 80’s. Lizzie’s brother, Danny, is gay and he and his boyfriend, are hairdressers. Danny is a total hoot.
This story grows as the tension builds but it is often broken with laugh out loud moments with Lizzie’s family. Come join in and enjoy this book. You are guaranteed to find the book with a big, satisfied smile on your face.
Riley, the handyman, is a wonder to behold and the house starts to look better as he finishes the attic which is Lizzie's home office. Between jobs in the attic he comes across a box of letters and a diamond ring hidden beneath the floorboards. Meanwhile Lizzie has the feeling she is being watched, and her house is broken into, and she is followed by a black sedan. Riley joins her in sleuthing to try and figure out exactly what is going on.
There are many funny interludes with her family members that included her mom and dad, Grandmother Mabel, sister Molly, brother Danny, and his partner Andrew. Basically it is a mystery with a lot of lighthearted moments. At times Lizzie is at the mercy of not nice people, but it is Riley who always manages to come to her rescue. It certainly is a story that you don't want to stop reading and I had a hard time putting it down. It has many storylines that feature the various family members as well as the house connected mystery. I loved the way Ms Prentice wove them all together to make a compelling story that kept me guessing until the end. A lovely book that I recommend highly.
