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 of one hell of a ride.

When Jason Day's sister, Sally, drops off her four year old son, Timmy, for a month while Sally goes on vacation with her boyfriend, Jack, Jason never expects his life to change so dramatically.
While Sally and Jack are away Sally's former brother-in-law, Sam, shows up unexpectedly and quickly ends up settling in to spend some time with his nephew. Jason is immediately attracted to Sam and the two get into a relationship pretty quickly.
Oh, yeah, there's a mystery as well surrounding Sam's brother, Paul, who disappeared three years before with no word or explanation. There's also a spirit in the house communicating with the men, but especially Timmy.
Jason and Sam are really, really slow at getting a clue.
New to me narrator John Anthony Davis was entertaining, particularly with his timing on the humor and all the conversations in the story. Though he had some hiccups, they weren't so many that it detracted from the enjoyment of the listen.
The story was entertaining, particularly the humor, but the dense nature of Jason was taxing after a while. I just couldn't believe anyone could be that clueless and blind. Even after all the clues and glaringly obvious things begin piling up and happening around him.
But...the humor kept me interested and the narration kept me happy. Also, though I'm not usually a huge fan of when a kid is heavily involved in a story, Timmy (the little terror) was delightful. All in all it was a fun listen/read.
Funny and sweet story, not my favorite narrator
