Publisher's Summary

To Neil Rucker, seven months, one week, and a day is too long to wait in between dates. But life as a Spanish teacher to missionaries in Ecuador affords little opportunity for romance.When his worst student, Jay Jarvis, suggests a respite in Greenville, South Carolina, so begins Neil's delirious summer. Neil sees his chance to meet a sweet succession of Southern women, but little does he know that the girls of Greenville are now more elusive than a snowflake in the Ecuadorian jungle.
As they church-hop in Greenville, Neil tries to find the perfect girl among the Neapolitan choices: a demanding redhead, a joy-riding blonde, and a very tardy but intriguing girl with raven hair and a pierced eyebrow. Who knew relational gumbo would look like this?

If I had a teen...

Friends tell me that I ought to lighten up my reading life. So I tired some chick lit, but found most of it boring, poorly written, and often containing too much explicit sex (made more graphic by audio format, even if was cliched). When I saw this on sale, I thought Christian chick lit (or lad lit, I guess, in this case) might be better. If I had a teenager, I'd be glad if she/he read this, but it was a dull listen for middle-aged me.

Great Read

This is an excellent read. I would recommend it to anyone. When one reads the description, you would think it to be a purely entertaining book, however, there is more to this story then meets the eye. This story has some truly unexpected insight into thought relative to relationships and bonding.
