If you take a liberal, daughter of hippy activist parents, TV consumer reporter out of Los Angeles and plop her in the conservative, conventional suburbs of Houston to dog-sit for a couple of weeks, you’re bound to come up with some laughs. And in this book, you also get a bit of a romance, too, as Abby discovers the hunky, single-dad across the street. Granted he’s everything she doesn’t like in a man, originally. He even drives a gas-guzzling, giant truck! But as they say, sometimes opposite really do attract. And whether she wants to be attracted to him or not, she is – and it has nothing to do with the fact that he bails her out of jail.
