Octogenarian Luke Grant, despite suffering war injuries that left him blind in one eye and with only part of his right foot, went on to become a successful photographer. After his wife died of cancer, he became a fervent yet discreet womanizer whose conquests invariably remained his friends. But Luke’s peaceful life is interrupted when Emily, his granddaughter-in-law, is seriously injured in a tragic accident, and Luke is left to care for his two teenage great-granddaughters. Then the police indicate that Emily may have been the victim not of an accident but of an intended murder. Determined to find the truth, Luke uses his extensive network of friends and former conquests to ferret out clues and information, all the while negotiating the tricky needs of his teenage wards. Tongue-in-cheek humor, a feisty hero, and a surprise-filled plot make this an entertaining and enjoyable read. Perfect for a cold winter day in front of the fire. --Emily Melton

This is going to be a huge hindrance on his lifestyle but they are blood relatives and he does love them after all. He is also determined to find out who ran down their mother and left her to die since the police don't seem to want to allocate any man power to it. Only thing is its a small Scottish town they all live in and gossip spreads fast. Someone did what they did for a reason and isn't too happy to have an old man meddling in what the police have written off as a simple traffic accident hit and run and it seems the girls may well need to find a new guardian if Luke isn't 100% alert!
This was a great novel, except Hammond obviously being an old man himself has forgotten what a sixteen year old is like or isn't aware of what they are like and know and do in the current generation at all. He has Luke having to talk to a sixteen year old about an older boy who has asked her to go fishing who isn't aware there is much more beyond wanting to hold her hand. She also later has no idea why her mum would have expensive mum since no one would ever see it. Maybe Hammond should have made the oldest daughter 8 or 10 at the most, even this would be a stretch these days. This is my only fault with this story and where an editor should have probably stepped in. Great story though other than this factor and highly recommended!
