I love Megs Pritchard's style of writing and this one is just as good as her other books.
Here is Zach, newly graduated and jobless. Desperate to find a job he applies to anything and everything, finally he is accepted at a call center and undergoes rigorous training to be qualified for the job. Here he bumps into his new boss, John, and he does literally bump into him causing an instant dislike from his new manager.
Tragedy strikes, and I was not expecting this, the scenes are heartbreakingly realistic and had me in tears. Zach suddenly finds himself responsible for his two nephews, one a toddler and the other still a baby.
Having to cope with his grief, the children and a boss that hates him leaves Zach a broken, exhausted and angry man.
John, doesn't hate Zach, he has the opposite feelings for him, and after a lapse one night Zach is left wondering just where he stands with him.
This is an uplifting story with some definite laugh out loud scenarios involving nappies and baby sick!!! But mainly it is a story of hope and survival and leaves you feeling good. Well worth reading.
