Warning: Before you even consider listening to this, understand that this is a story about a guy that is large, feels he is in charge, and is ready to kick some butt. In truth, he is essentially deaf, almost blind, socially handicapped, and has little sense of smell to boot. Add to that his basic disregard for proper attire and you have one humorous, heartfelt, and, at times, moving story. Okay maybe not that heartfelt or moving, but it may all depend on how you look at things. If you can get past the loud Hawaiian shirts, shorts, and glaring white knee socks and sandals, then you can get to the meat and potatoes of what is coming at you. It is a diverse and respectful viewpoint of life, both in and out of the Amish community, and how the Plain Folk and English view each other. In the first volume, The Whoopie Affair, listeners will meet G, the erstwhile suburban hit man, and Eli, the Amish blacksmith. Two totally different men. Two totally different families. Two entirely separate worlds. One destiny. What happens when this unlikely dynamic duo go about solving the mystery of the missing whoopie pies? Plenty of mirth, merriment, malevolence, and muck, but above all, good clean family fun. This is a story that can be listened to by anyone of any age, from 9 to 99. So saddle up, get in the SUV or horse and buggy, put on your wrap around shades, tighten up those suspenders, fix your ball cap or straw hat on top of your head, and get your sandals - or boots - on! It is time to roll and party with Eli the blacksmith and G the hit man in an adventure you are not soon to forget. You will never look at a horse and buggy the same way again. 1. Language: English.

Brooks Benson is bored, stuck and miserable. When both his parents were unable to continue running the variety store, he dropped out of college and came back home to help. It´s been almost two years and he´s tired of making pizzas and selling scratch tickets to the locals of Hope Harbor, Maine. But as the second oldest Benson brother, he´s the one that stepped up. Now all he can see is a gray future in front of him. Remington ´´Remi” Wright is disappointed, frustrated, and out of options. After dropping out of college and trying to make a go of it in New York, she´s forced to come back home to live with her parents in Hope Harbor. Totally humiliating. Things are looking pretty grim until she starts baking again and runs into Brooks when she visits Benson Variety to ask if they´ll sell her whoopie pies, cakes, and cookies. What was once a high school crush is now something much more mature that hits both of them like a ton of bricks. Brooks is game, as long as they keep things physical which is just fine with Remi. She´s not planning on sticking around Hope Harbor forever, and Brooks is definitely a lifer. They´re just to different to ever build something that could last. Life rarely goes according to plan and what starts as just sex soon turns into something that splashes color into their once drab lives. For the first time, they find peace and security in one another. But will it last? Or will everything crumble into pieces leaving them with nothing? 1. Language: English. Narrator: E.L. Beckett.
