From the Editor

When this book first landed on my desk, I knew that I had found something very special. Quirky and uplifting, both laugh-out-loud funny and intensely poignant. I was enchanted by Oliver Clock and defy you to not be blown over by him too!

Oliver Clock has constructed a carefully organized world for himself, which is perhaps just a little OCD. He’s lonely, desperate for love, and having just inherited his family’s funeral home business, not the most attractive prospect. But his secret is that he has been in love with Marie, the funeral florist, for fifteen years. He’s never been able to tell her how he feels, and when she suddenly passes away, his opportunity is lost. Devastated by her death, Oliver is given Marie’s diary and discovers that she had secretly harbored a love for him too. This brings on a realization from Oliver that perhaps he is worthy of a happy relationship after all.

This book’s sparkly wit and charm had me from the first chapter. Author Jane Riley has a way of bringing rays of light into the most bittersweet of situations and conjuring up characters who are unforgettable. A truly joyful read!

- Sammia Hamer, Editor
