Jack Laskin is an ordinary man. More than ordinary according to some. Running the family hardware store and a life that would bore a snail, nothing exciting ever seems to happen to him.
Then, at his mother’s urging, he tries on a pair of his late grandfather's old pants and everything changes -- most importantly his emerging love life. It's not long before his mother and her meddling friends get involved.
When an old friend of his grandfather’s tells Jack he has something she wants, his new-found life takes another turn. Having no idea what he is supposed to have, Jack looks to his girlfriend, Connie, and her brother, Robert, for help.
In the end, the answers will all be found in his Grandfather’s Pants.

About the Author
Dearheart, my wife of forty five years and I live in Cherry Valley, a little town of 8,200 in Southern California. In that time, I've built a successful remodeling /contracting business. But that's just my day job... everyone that writes, everyone who tells you how to write, all say the same thing... Write about what you know and what I know is me. Well, at least the me I see when I write... a protagonist frequently wedged between a rock and a hard place but manages to work things out at the last minute after all. Like most of us when pushed into a corner it only brings out the best in us and we become the unstoppable force of a reluctant hero. If I have a signature style for creating a character then this is it. I have a Action / Adventure novel called "The Chronicles of Tucker Littlefield," published by Netherworld Books and a Paranormal Fiction story called My Grandfather’s Pants as well as Sci-Fi novel called "Machines of the Little People carried by Tirgearr Publiashing and a number of short stories published by The Short Humor Site.

This was such a cute and fun read! This was a good and quick romantic comedy that was a joy to read. Jack, who everyone call's Henry (his dad's name) is given a pair of pants (that he doubts will even fit him, but they do; quite well) that were his grandfather's pants and his life changes; in the romantic sense. When this started, the story got funnier. Because the pants seem to have a magic power of what type and color shirts he should wear because when he reaches for a shirt, the pants itch., until he reaches for a white t-shirt, and no itching! Then, watching him go through what all kids, no matter the age, go through, was so funny for me...his mother and her friends forcing themselves into his love life when he clearly does not want their help or nosiness. Watching him swoon the girl that is the desire of his heart is both sweet and comical. All in all, this book was so cute and funny, even for the younger generation.
Jack Laskin is a man that runs his father’s hardware store. He has a great relationship with Connie and deals well with his mother’s over bearing ways. That all changes when I tries on a pair of his Grandfather’s pants. At first he is very hesitant until he finally puts them on and realizes how comfortable they are, then the magic starts. This is a great story that goes in all directions, but in a good way. I loved how his mother and her friends tried to help and just made a giant comedy of errors with blackmail and revenge. Jack has suddenly become very popular with the ladies and had a series of events that leaves him off kilter. Then there is the curse on the men in the family that is the icing on top of the cake. If you are looking for a great comedy with a touch of magic, look no further. You will be laughing out loud through this whole book. I can’t wait to read other books from Tegon Maus. I received My Grandfather’s Pants from Teddy at Virtual Author Book Tours for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
Well, I’ve heard of stepping in someone’s shoes, but their grandfather’s pants? Oh man, this book had me in stitches. That’s no surprise as most of Tegon’s books are heavy on the satire. Just wait until you find out about those pants. Poor Jack. There’s no way he could have seen his mom and her cronies coming. And his girlfriend Connie. It just got funnier when she became involved in the scheme those over the hiller’s were plotting. There’s romance, humor, more humor, and a mystery between the covers of this book. And the characters. I can only imagine what life would be like if I had these hanging around. For sure there would never be a dull moment. If you’ve not tried one of this author’s books, this would be a great one to start with. And once your finished, your funny bone will be demanding more.
My Grandfather's Pants is a funny and surprising novel. An enjoyable combination of fantasy and suspense with a touch of romance. The protagonist, Jack is a likeable old soul thrown into a bizarre situation, and the way he handles the bizarre challenges he faces will keep you guessing . . . and laughing. Pick up this book if you want to take a ride on this rollicking rollercoaster. You won't be disappointed!
