Description
Having descended from a long line of indomitable, good-humored Scots, Hayden MacBride sees no reason to take his own death lying down. In fact, he now spends his days crashing funerals for the free food and insight into the Great Beyond. Then he meets Rosamond, a nun playing hooky from the Holy Orders. Hayden is smitten the instant her heavy silver cross smacks him in the face when she leaps up to do the wave at a ball game. Luckily, Rosamond has picked the right person to teach her how to live . . . and to love--because nobody does both better than Hayden MacBride. However, Rosamond's years in the convent have not prepared her for the oddball characters of Hayden's world. There's his ever-fretful, vigilant daughter, Diana, the "Dutchess o' the Sidelong Glance"; his sweet grandson Joey, struggling to break free of his mother's overprotective embrace; Hayden's bagpipe-blowing cronies; the Greyfriars Gang; neighbor Bobbie Anne, a "working girl" full of good advice and tender mercies; and Hank, the sexy architect contemplating the priesthood--a big mistake in Hayden's book. For Hayden thinks that Hank should be married to his daughter and raising Joey. And he has an elaborate plan to make Hank see things his way. . . . In an uproariously funny novel of love, laughter, and one man's final call at the riotous watering hole called life, Laura Pedersen proves that miracles are all around us--when we open our eyes and our hearts to embrace them.
