Formatted Contents Note:
Ruthie Midona has worked the front desk of Providence Retirement Villa for years, living on-site at the beck and call of the wealthy residents-- and the rare tortoises that roam the lawn. Teddy Prescott, son of Providence's new owner, is in town saving up money to pursue his dream of opening a tattoo shop. He's the definition of risky, and Ruthie's dazzled-- until he mistakes her for an old lady! She has revenge in mind: her most eccentric residents, the Parloni sisters, have placed an ad seeking a personal assistant. Not one of their assistants have lasted a week. As Teddy charms his way through the Villa, his family's plans threaten to ruin Ruthie's universe. Will he be there when it really counts? -- adapted from jacket
Summary, etc.:
"An advertisement has been placed (again!) by the wealthy and eccentric Parloni Sisters. The salary is generous and the employers are 90 years old, so how hard could the job be? Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears. Ruthie Midona will work in Providence’s front office, and be at the Parloni’s beck and call, forever. That’s sort of her life plan. If Ruthie can run the place in her almost-retired bosses’ absence, with no hijinks/hiccups, she has a shot at becoming the new manager. She might also be able to defend her safe little world from Prescott Development, the new buyer of the prime site. Maybe after all that, she can find a cute guy to date. All she needs to do is stay serious - and that’s what she does best. Until, one day, someone dazzling blows in to town. Teddy Prescott devotes his life to sleeping, tattooing, and avoiding seriousness. When Teddy needs a place to crash, he makes a deal with his developer dad. Teddy can stay in one of Providence’s on-site maintenance cottages - right next door to an unimpressed Ruthie - but only if he works there and starts to grow up. Ruthie knows how this sweetly selfish rich boy can earn his keep - and be out of her hair in under a week. After all, there is a position vacant…"--Publisher.
