When Lunie Pitts is laid from her job at the Mosby Gap Building Department, she decides to clean her spotless house and write a novel in 30 days as part of a national contest. She must begin dealing with her deceased mother's house down the street. Mother was a hoarder ("hoarding abhors a vacuum") and so is Lunie's affable but irresponsible brother, Dayton. He moves in "temporarily" because there is no room at Mother's. Lunie's circumscribed life quickly spins out of control when Dayton's gift of a stuffed moose with amazing mechanical attributes becomes wedged in the front door, and "friends" Dayton makes on Facebook invade Lunie's life and home.
Overwhelmed, Lunie seeks professional help online from the dubious Dr. Manngo, who offers odd, yet comforting, advice. She shares with him childhood issues, such as Mother's frightening refrigerator contents, and her dislkie of neighbor Coreen Pomphre's new reality TV cooking show and her brother's walk-about business. Lunie is increasingly unable to "get a grip" on her life and discovers Mother is still a force to be reckoned with.
Despite the many distractions, Lune types away on her novel, never quite sure of where her characters are headed in their steamy relationships. There are always surprises at her door, and they aren't all bad.
