A Gemma Open Door book
Meany Freeney is a bachelor farmer with simple needs and a healthy bank balance. His approach to life mirrors his drinking habits – why buy a pint of Guinness when a half-pint, sipped slowly, gives twice the value?
Trouble brews when an old flame arrives back in town. Her sparkle lights up his lonely world, but if he and the free-spending Julie are ever to marry, Meany must loosen his iron grip on the purse strings. Soon there is talk of fancy central heating, hot running water and even a gas cooker! But Meany has some cost-saving plans up his sleeve that should keep everyone happy.
Or so he thinks…
