Hey, Good Looking: A Novel
With more than sixty-six million copies of her novels in print, Fern Michaels has long been accustomed to spending time on the bestseller lists. Her latest noel in paperback, HEY, GOOD LOOKING, is further proof of her storytelling prowess, quiet wisdom, and gift for creating characters that fairly walk right off the page.
When the Gunn family reunites to mourn the tragic death of 33-year-old Russ, they find themselves confronting some old wounds. Russ's father, Marcus, has been distant from his children for years, imprisoned in his own home by an evil second wife who had blackmailed him into marriage. But Ben, Russ's brother, remains unsympathetic and refuses to forgive Marcus for being an absentee father. Only the intervention of Ben's lover Darby Lane can bring an end to the impasse. She teams up with her three wily aunts to free poor Marcus from his pernicious spouse, convince Ben to forgive his father, and get them both a chance to find meaning in Russ's death by becoming a family again. Set against the rich backdrop of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, HEY, GOOD LOOKING evokes two extraordinary families and the ties that bind them through heartache and adversity.
