Three months after losing his parents in a car crash, Denver weatherman Daniel Whitaker returns to Laramie, Wyoming. It's bad enough dealing with the death of his parents and his failing relationship of 15 years, but when he finds his childhood home full of clutter, Daniel is at a loss. He enlists Landon, his parents' sexy neighbor, to help him sort through the mess.
Landon Kushner is a study in contradictions. He builds wind sculptures out of scrap metal and loves the outdoors, but he also rides a mint-green Vespa and has an affinity for knitting and fortune-telling. He's been friends with Daniel's parents for years, and he's more than willing to lend a hand.
Their plan is simple: Clean the house so Daniel can sell it and get back to his life in Denver. But when a strange cookbook comes into Landon's possession, Daniel begins to realize that the universe - and Granny B - may have other plans.

At under 130 pages, this book really packs an emotional punch. I never thought that a short story would have me laughing and tearing up. Marie Sexton just has a way of tugging on your heartstrings and it makes me want to go back and read some of her other titles I may have missed. I’m so glad I picked this story up!
