Overview

Hey, Good Looking by Fern Michaels

When the Gunn family reunites to mourn the death of thirty-three-year-old Russ, they find themselves confronting old wounds. Marcus, Russ's father, has been an absentee father only because of his evil second wife who had blackmailed him into marriage. But Ben, Russ's brother, refuses to believe or forgive their father. Ben's lover, Darby Lane, knows that with the help of her three wily aunts -- Dodo, Diddy and Ducky Lane -- they can free Marcus from his pernicious spouse and convince Ben to figive his father, and get them both a chance to find meaning in Russ's death by becoming a family again.

I loved this book!!! The 3 aunts were delightful in the story...they made me laugh right out loud. The story was touching, romantic, funny and I just could not wait to read each page to see what was going to happen.

So far I have loved every book I have read by F.M. This one had everything I like. Humor, the Aunts antics especially, love, little mystery and getting rid of the 'witch' and of course it was a little sad. I read it far to quickly couldn't wait to get back to it.

Darby Lane and Russell Gunn have been friends forever but never lovers. That is not what they wanted for their friendship. They are just plain old good friends. They have just graduated from college, Russell with a teaching degree and Darby who will start her own business as an exclusive dollhouse creator, and they are on their way home to Baton Rouge. They first stop at the lawyer¿s office where Russ makes Darby his sole beneficiary and executrix of this will. One of his final wishes is to NOT be an organ donor. Ten years later, they are back at home at the Horseshoe because a young life, Russ¿, has been taken. A terrible accident happened and then Darby finds out too late that Bella Gunn, Russ¿s step-mother, donated his organs. Darby is crushed. She feels she failed Russ. Ben Gunn, Russ¿s brother is also there and has always been in love with Darby. The feelings go both ways but neither has ever said anything to the other. Marcus Gunn, the boy¿s father, has had a stroke and a mild heart attack and is being kept doped by round the clock nurses hired by Bella. She is trying to social climb but the city¿s society circles will have none of her. Darby¿s three aunts have raised her and the two boys and their sister, Mary when Bella wouldn¿t. With Marcus out of the way, Bella tries to demolish the two houses in the ¿shoe¿ that belong to the Gunn family to spite the aunts. Since this is where the aunt¿s live, they work together to discredit Bella and save the history. Ben and Darby finally admit their love for each other and work to discover where Russ¿ have gone. By doing this, Darby feels she will be able to go on with her life and not feel she failed Russ. In the meantime, the aunts kidnap Marcus to find out what is going on with Bella. How does this all end? Oh but that would be giving away the story and one that is very tender and full of real life situations. Fern Michaels has put together a wonderful story with a great ending. My only regret is that Bella is allowed to ¿get away¿. Laural Merlington is the reader and she is talented enough to create a voice for each character. She even does one with a Japanese accent! Her reading is done well and is easy to listen to. Grab a copy and have a good listen.

Will it take the loss of a life to bring a family together? On the day they graduated from college, Russell Gunn made his best friend, Darby Lane, the executrix and heir to his will. He is very explicit that his organs are not to be donated when he dies.   Ten years later, Russell is killed in a head-on crash. While Darby is out of the country on business, Russell's ruthless stepmother, Bella donates his organs and has the funeral almost immediately. Status seeking Bella has secrets of her own she is hiding.Darby and Ben, Russell's older brother make it their purpose to find out who the recipients of Russell's organs are and meet them in order to gain closure on Russell's behalf. Darby takes Russell's grieving dog on the visits and the results are hair-raising.Darby's three elderly aunts who raised her, Diddy, Ducky, and DoDo are the color that Southern ladies are famous for. While Ben and Darby are busy, they are hatching up a scheme of their own in between drinking up the profits from the company brewery and running naked in the rain at midnight. Fern Michaels never fails to amaze me. The grief, love, and humor portrayed in her characters displays the full spectrum of human emotion.   Hey, Good Looking is a winner!

Thirty-three years old Darby Lane comes home to Baton Rouge to attend the funeral of her long time best friend Russ Gunn, who died in an accident. Darby and her three septuagenarian aunts, Dodo, Diddy, and Ducky are upset that Russ¿ stepmother Bella donated all his organs to donors. Though it seems like a kind gesture, the Lane brood know that the deceased was adamant not to have that happen to him because of an incident at college involving a friend and that Bella is using this to enable her to finally join the elitist ¿Rougies¿. Russ¿ siblings Ben and Mary also arrive, but she leaves almost immediately unable to deal with their estranged father.----- When Ben sees Darby for the first tin years he knows why he never got married or that involved with another woman he loves her, but she has always been Russ¿ woman. As they and the aunts plot to destroy the evil stepmother and rescue the father, Darby begins to fall in love with Ben.----- This interesting contemporary romance emphasizes that the end does not always justify the means as the Lane females and Russ¿ siblings are horrified that his wishes were ignored by his wicked stepmother though his organs provide life to others. The ensemble cast for the most part is solid yet eccentric with fans realizing you don¿t mess with the three Ds. Bella on the other hand is so selfish she is a caricature of the wicked stepmother as every action she does is to further her personal objectives (perfect traits for Congress or the White House, but not for a mom and wife). Fans will enjoy this fine tale of matchmaking, rescuing, and honoring loved ones.----- Harriet Klausner
