Multiple Listing By: Tracy McMillan
"What would you do if your ex-con father suddenly came to visit…indefinitely? Family drama ensues when Nicki’s dad unexpectedly moves in with her, her son, and her boyfriend in this comedic novel from successful TV writer Tracy McMillan.
Nicki Daniels owns a home appraisal business, but real estate is her true passion: she lives for open houses and really knows her way around a floor plan. And especially at this juncture of her life, real estate has come to signify the stability she is trying to build with her teenage son, Cody, and her much younger boyfriend, Jake. She’s finally ready to find the perfect house for the three of them and work on a new business venture with Jake that she thinks will jump-start their lives together.
Meanwhile, Ronnie, a longtime inmate at a nearby correctional facility, is getting some good news for once—there was a mistake in his sentencing, and he’s eligible to get out of prison. After a sixty-day stay in a halfway house, Ronnie decides his best option to avoid homelessness is to move in with his estranged daughter: Nicki. Even though they haven’t spoken in years, her door is always open to him, right?
Inspired by the author’s life and imbued with wit and profound insight into relationships, Multiple Listings speaks poignantly—and often hilariously—about the ties that bind families of all types together."
What a good read "Multiple Listings" was! I will say that this read started and went around a complete circle giving the reader a complete story from start to finish of about Niki, her son Cody, then to her father Ronnie, mother...Beth, Nikki's friend ....Peaches...her boy friends...Jake and Alex
to a few others that make this such a complete story. We find from this story that Nikki is a single thirty something year old with a sixteen year old son has a successful business in a relationship however, she has a lots of issues ...with a crazy friend...ex con father who she hasn't seen over seventeen years,..on to a romance that doesn't seem to be going no where. This story will pick up when Nikki's father shows up wanting to fix the past. Now, this is some story here yes, some even predicable but still some surprises! Will Nikki allow this to happen? I liked how this author brings in this grandfather who wants to be there for Nikki and his grandson Cody. How will this all fit into this story about real estate? However, this story will all blend in together as this author will bring it out so well to the readers. where we find one taking responsibility for their mishaps with there being s forgiveness. If you love a story with good endings and second chances then you have a good story that I would recommend to you as a good read.
