Maxie, a 60-something widow, is a new character to me. Having spent way too long in the Southwest, she's looking forward to a summer in her home in Homer, with her miniature dachshund Stretch. Soon she gets a pitiful phone call from an old acquaintance in Hawaii, a recent widow who never learned to take care of herself. She's wearing two casts from an accident, and wants Maxie's help packing to move back to Homer. Reluctantly, Maxie agrees. That's her first mistake. All kinds of things go wrong, and Karen leaves everything to Maxie, while being totally indecisive. I wanted to kick them both. Maxie's best move is to hire Jerry, a plumber's apprentice who's quit to get out from under his step-father's abusive thumb. He's a great worker, funny, smart. Not as good as the Jessie Arnold series, fluffier, though Jessie and Alex appear. I did like Maxie's well rounded character, a great role model of a thinking, active senior.
