When Monique St.Cyr discovers her mother, a practically born-again-virgin, is writing erotic fiction, she realizes she’ll never again be able to show her face in public. But her mother is the least of her problems. Monique’s love life and her bank account tanks, leaving her emotionally and financially bankrupt.


Sometimes good intentions aren't enough. No one knows that better than Monique St. Cyr, parochial school dropout, dieter extraordinaire, and want-to-be investigative reporter with pit bull tenacity and a habit of leaping headlong before she looks. Monique, obituary writer for a tabloid-style newspaper in Portland, Maine, lives next door to her mother, Anne Marie, an erotic fiction author.


(Originally titled "Mixed Blessings")

When Monique St. Cyr's mother, erotic fiction author, Ann Marie, leaves on a three-month honeymoon, Monique is certain her life is about to improve: that is until old-fashioned Aunt Lilly and deaf Gramps move into the duplex next door-boxes of her mother's ripped erotic books show up on Monique's doorstep with threatening notes-and her aunt and her best friend end up pregnant.


Recipe for chaos: Start with a raffle for one brand-new Winnebago, a dishonest Winnebago dealer who doesn't intend to part with the prize, a virus-infected computer that spits out two winning tickets. Add Thomas O'Leary and Karen Ann Brown, opposites who instantly dislike each other. Pack them into a motor home for thirty days with three misbehaved boys, a Siamese cat, and a black lab. Let them fight it out.
