JUST WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED

 

From Amazon reviews:

“Don’t miss this acerbically funny, intelligent saga of parenting and love.”

“But mainly, it’s hilarious. Nancy has a wonderful sense of humor and the way she captures this young girl’s personality is absolutely brilliant. I highly recommend this book.”

The characters are engaging and the ending isn’t what I expected, which made it even better.”

“…delightful, fun and poignant.”

About the book:

Cynthia Breault needs a new life.

She’s not miserable. She’s bored. Bored with her safe monotonous job; bored with her cautious loneliness.

Thanks to an unexpected financial windfall, Cynthia opts for early retirement at fifty, hoping to find a new passion. Soon, she thinks she’s found it – in the form of a failing boutique abandoned by its mysterious owner. And the shop is not the only thing the proprietor has deserted. There’s a very nice husband left behind as well.

It’s perfect.

Until Cynthia meets Shannon Miller.  Shannon is fourteen, a tough and defiant casualty of the foster care system.  And she’s pregnant.

Irresistibly drawn to this foul-mouthed, sarcastic, but vulnerable teenager, Cynthia rediscovers long-buried memories.

Suddenly the store seems unimportant.  And hoping she can explain to the new man in her life – eventually, anyway – Cynthia takes the leap.

She offers Shannon a deal. With strings attached.

If they both get what they want, does it matter that their scheme is just slightly illegal?
