A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Hester Wallace is proud of her independence. She only needs one man in her life -- her nine-year-old son, Radley. But when Rad starts idolizing neighbor Mitch Dempsey, Hester begins to wonder if she's been cheating her son out of a male role model. Hester would do anything for Rad, but inviting Mitch into their lives is dangerous. Because she might start to rely on Mitch -- on his comfort, on his humor, on his passion. Worse, she might fall in love with him.

A very delightful story and writing: memorable characters, crisp hilarious dialogues. Entertaining.

Two novels in one volume: "A Will and a Way," in which rich Uncle Jolley leaves all his money to the only two of his relatives to care about him in hopes that they will get over their aversion for one another.
And "Local Hero," in which Mitch--a writer/illustrator--meets the new neighbor, Hester, who has a new job a the bank and is ahe single mother of a young fan of Mitch's comic book creations
