Blurb: Jason Day, brilliant designer of video games, is not only a confirmed bachelor, but he’s as gay as a maypole. One wouldn’t think being saddled with his precocious four-year-old nephew for four weeks would be enough to throw him off-kilter.

Wrong. Timmy, Jason’s nephew, is a true handful.

But just when Timmy and Uncle Jason begin to bond, and Jason feels he’s getting a grip on this babysitting business once and for all, he’s thrown for a loop by a couple of visitors—one from Tucson, the other from beyond the grave.

I’m sorry. Say what?

Toss a murder, a hot young stud, an unexpected love affair, and a spooky-ass ghost with a weird sense of humor into Jason’s summer plans, and you’ve got the makings for one hell of a ride.


Review – Book: Jason agrees to babysit for his precocious 4-year old nephew – Timmy – for his sister Sally. He’s in a bit over his head because Timmy is 4 going on 14!

Timmy’s dad is missing and Paul – Timmy’s uncle, Sam – comes into town, Jason lets him crash at his place rather than spend money on a hotel.

Timmy reports that there is a ghost in the basement and Jason and Sam hear unexplained things and see some strange things, as well.

The relationship building between Sam and Jason is pretty smooth and quick, the bulk of the story is spent figuring out the mystery in the basement.


John Inman does humor so well! It’s hard to be funny and spooky but he manages just that. The characters are all very well developed and three dimensional – even the ghost!

The one-liners really zing in this book!

This was a light, enjoyable, funny book with a sweet romance and a quirky/spooky mystery thrown in and… oh yeah! A ghost!

4 of 5 stars

Review – Audio Book: Anthony Davis is a new narrator to me. While he did a nice job with the timing and the emotions, and a passable job on Timmy’s voice, there were times it felt like he was stumbling along in his narration over words and it got distracting.

I think that – overall – it’s not a bad way to experience this book, but it wasn’t my favorite narrator.

3 of 5 stars

Overall Impression: I liked it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
