"If you have anything weird wrong with you in this country, you'd better be Canadian." So says widowed Cassie Jones when, after being written off by countless doctors, she finally finds one who diagnoses her with a rare genetic form of arthritis. The condition is manageable, but not curable, and a new diagnosis, so her health insurance refuses to pay for most of her expensive medications and treatment. So widowed Cassie, still grieving for the love of her life and facing destitution because of her medical bills, decides she has to remarry for better health coverage. Enter one-legged hermit and curmudgeon Jack Wilson, on the same appointment schedule at their specialist's, who's rude and obnoxious, but eventually tries to help by setting up e-dating for Cassie. After a hilarious round of fix-ups and e-dating, Cassie's left with no hope and no prospects. That's when Jack offers a strictly business marriage that could solve both their problems, with a serious set of house rules, including separate bedrooms. How well it will work remains to be seen. With her trademark humor and sass, Haywood brings these two characters to life in an unlikely grown-up relationship that transcends their medical problems and will leave readers smiling long after the last page is turned.--Dust jacket flap.

This is my first novel by this author, and I was not dissapointed, she held my attention throughout the whole book, in fact I find myself staying up way past bedtime to finish reading this book. A real page turner.

Not a bad story, but too religious overall. I do appreciate the author's understanding of the financial and insurance coverage difficulties faced by people with chronic medical conditions.

I loved this book! It's the first one I've read from this author and I wasn't disappointed. The characters were real life people and their situations were very real. It was a real page turner and I couldn't wait to get back to it! If I didn't work, I would have just read it in one day! As it was, I read it in two days! I'm so excited to read another one of her books. If it's as good as this one I'll be a happy camper. I highly recommend this book.
