HOW TO TALK TO A WIDOWER by Jonathan Tropper, (2008). Well as you can see we have a male author, and believe you me, he’s all man! Lots of cursing in this book ladies so don’t even pick it up and read if it bothers you. The main man is a 29 year old widower, named Doug Parker and his 40 year old wife Hailey died a year earlier in an airplane crash. Doug claims he’s just not ready to date to have a serious relationship. Although he is finally having his first sexual encounter with a very sexy married lady named Laney, who happens to be married to his lawyer so I wonder what kind of an ending that encounter will have? Meanwhile Russ, Doug’s stepson is slowing going down hill following his mother’s death, by hanging out with the wrong crowd. He’s been drinking and smoking pot. Both men are sadly depressed even a year later as we would expect.
