Can a landscape designer find happiness as a househusband and father in the wake of his wife's cross-country move? Not quite as light-weight as you might expect, but still a fun read.

Really funny, and really good...quick read, and I sure wish I had a husband like Linc!

"When his wife, Jo, is offered her dream job, Lincoln Menner leaves his thriving landscape business in Los Angeles and moves to Rochester, New York. This will be his chance to start over, spend a little time with their three-year-old daughter, and finally do things right at home.

But Linc had no idea what it really meant to be a househusband: to stay home every day, folding laundry, cleaning soap scum, and teaching his little girl to use the potty. To be ignored at parties by his wifes colleagues who see him as just a homemaker. Though he soon has the house humming, Linc misses the outside world. Most of all he misses Jo, who works too late and barely notices the fabulous dinners he slaves over. Drastic action must be taken to make his efficiently run house truly a home, sweet home. And Linc knows he is just the man for the job!"

It took me a couple of chapters to get into this book and then I enjoyed it enough to only read a couple chapters a day. I really liked how in a "man's way" he found out what it was like to be a housewife, how he did the daily things (and often much more efficiently then most women do) --- how he handled little Violet and how he really truly enjoyed it! A good read!
