This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


When Marcus Sumter, a short-order cook with dreams of being a chef, inherits a house in small town Marathon, Georgia, he leaves his big city life behind. Marcus intends to sell the house to finance his dreams, but a group of lovable busybodies called the Do-Nothings, a new job at the local diner, the Tammy Dinette, and a handsome mechanic named Hank cause Marcus to rethink his plans. Will he return to the life he knew or will he finally put down roots?

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 05, 2016 – Brewer's second novel, "dedicated to Southern women of a certain age," is all about these ladies, or at least as much about them as one jaded young man can perceive. Marcus Sumter is rootless and cynical, and getting into a car crash in the tiny town of Marathon, Ga., does nothing to improve his outlook. Though vaguely aware that his father hailed from the area, Marcus is in no way prepared to discover that his grandmother there has died and left him her house. He's even more nonplussed by the parade of postmenopausal ladies this brings into his life: Delores, the menace who drove her car head-on into his; Helen, who sweeps him out of the hospital and into his inheritance; Inez, who thirsts for the gossip a gay neighbor will inspire; and a small host of other Do Nothings of the title. Though billed as romance, this is a classic comedy skit show, a series of set pieces strung along the simplest of plot lines. Hank, the town mechanic, does eventually wander into Marcus's life, but the point of the story is laughter, and Brewer shows a wicked facility with the pratfalls and plain speaking of the steel magnolias at the book's heart.
