Book Review - 50 HOURS by Loree Lough
According to Amazon this is classified as medical fiction. Personally, I'd also put it in the genre of women's fiction, although obviously guys will like it too. (Jack Watts wrote one of the accolades for Amazon.) Put me down as one enthusiastic fan.
Franco Allessi is a bummed-out ne'er-do-well who'd rather drink his memories away than live, resulting in a DUI conviction with a judge who commands fifty hours in community service rather than jail time. Savannah Falls Hospice seems the perfect place. At least he enjoys the yardwork. He used to own a landscaping company before his wife died, and it's within walking distance of his barely livable trailer house.
At the hospice on the first day he meets Aubrey Brewer and breaks a cardinal rule: under no circumstances is he to enter a patient's room. The problem is a contract employee in her room who is bullying Aubrey. He's forty hours into his service completion when she suggests the impossible. If he does what she wishes, he'll go to prison.
Ohmygoodness! You really have to get this book and help them out of this precarious position--please! Amazon or Barnes and Noble, quick! (While you're at it, buy a box or two of tissue--even if you're a guy.)
I received a free copy of this book from the author in return for an endorsement.
