Thats kind of a full life for a kid in the worlds biggest playground. Despite what everyone thinks, she doesnt need, or want, a romantic relationship.Far more comfortable in blue jeans and flannel than in heels and satin, Lee finds herself lying to every man she dates.
To the physical trainer, shes a preschool teacher- to the guy at the bowling alley, shes a secretary. The lies keep romance at arms length even as they drive the angel to distraction until the day she realizes shes fallen for a straight-laced accountant whos exploring his dark side through bizarre foods (please note: sea cucumber is not a vegetable). But now he thinks shes someone shes not. And by the way, his last girlfriend lied to him, but Lee cant quit the lie.Now shes got to turn those mechanic skills on herself to diagnose and repair the most important relationships in her life.
And just think, she used to find it tough repairing a transmission!Long-time comedy writer and novelist Jane Lebak serves up a hilarious comedy with angels and spare tires and a recipe for the best omelets youve ever tasted. Also what may be the most romantic toilet-fixing scene in the English language. But there really isnt an award for that, so well never know.
