Publisher Description

LONG SUMMARY: Lloyd has reached the age of 32 years, seven months, four days, and six hours without finding Miss Right and converting her into Mrs. Lloyd Schifflebein. Yes, Schifflebein. A name that is unromantic, unspellable, and way too long for signing checks and the backs of credit cards.

Even if Miss Right appears, there is another impediment to wedded bliss: Lloyd obsesses over his six children. He doesn’t have them yet, but he is working on it. He has been filing adoption applications all his adult life. This leads many people to deduce that Lloyd Schifflebein is crazy. Big and strong, sure. Cute, maybe, but loony nonetheless.

Somehow Lloyd finally convinces the Social Worker From Hell that he really is good father-material. Soon the Schifflebein household is a circus, with six special kids and their six neurotic pet bunnies. To become a forever family, however, they must pass a probationary period with surprise inspections at any time.

Then things begin to go wrong:

The Teapot arrives. The one that is certain to get Lloyd get officially labeled “insane,” removing any chance of successful adoptions.

Miss Right appears, but she is engaged to someone else.

Lloyd’s enemies attack him with false accusations and numerous lawsuits.

The government takes away Lloyd’s children, pending his day in court.

In his fight to keep his children, his livelihood, and his beloved bride, Lloyd definitely needs supernatural help – even if it comes in the form of a snarky, talking Teapot.

Marina Ariadne ,

Awwwww

This has got to be the single sweetest heartwarming story I’ve read in ages. An instant family of endearing misfits finally comes together under odd circumstances. There are some crusty characters with hearts of marshmallow, too. Love really wins out in this story, even under spectacular threat.

I had picked this up after reading Snow White and the Seven Daves, and it sat in my library until I really wanted a change from my usual genres. Then I discovered I had Finding Miranda and read that as well.

My late beau-père wasn’t the generations-long Florida native that Ms Chacon is, but his family moved to Destin, at that time very much in the middle of nowhere, from WDC in 1933.

Loved the teapots. You will find Orkney wandering through other Iris Chacon novels.
