Jack Laskin is an ordinary man. More than ordinary according to some. Running the family hardware store and a life that would bore a snail, nothing exciting ever seems to happen to him. Then, at his mother's urging, he tries on a pair of his late grandfather's old pants and everything changes -- most importantly his emerging love life. It's not long before his mother and her meddling friends get involved. When an old friend of his grandfather's tells Jack he has something she wants, his new-found life takes another turn. Having no idea what he is supposed to have, Jack looks to his girlfriend, Connie, and her brother, Robert, for help. In the end, the answers will all be found in his 'Grandfather's Pants'.
Praise for My Grandfather's Pants
by Tegon Maus
"This story is fantastic! It is totally different to anything I have read before. As the storyline unfolds, it is sexy, humorous and very entertaining and absolutely brilliant!"- Susan Keefe, Book Reviews By Susan Keefe, Author
"I was definitely not expecting to laugh as often as I did while reading My Grandfather's Pants. Mr. Maus has a fantastic sense of humour that translates extremely well to the written word. He is adept at teasing out the funny side of even the most serious or mundane parts of daily life. It was especially entertaining to see how he plays around with a wide range of assumptions most of us make about certain groups of people in order to keep his readers on their toes. My Grandfather's Pants is a great choice for anyone in the mood for something quirky and original. This is the kind of book that begs to be read more than once. I, for one, will be revisiting it quite soon!"- LAS Reviewer, Long and Short Reviews
"My Grandfather's Pants is a funny and surprising novel. An enjoyable combination of fantasy and suspense with a touch of romance. The protagonist, Jack is a likable old soul thrown into a bizarre situation, and the way he handles the bizarre challenges he faces will keep you guessing . . . and laughing. Pick up this book if you want to take a ride on a saucy, madcap rollercoaster. You won't be disappointed!"- Joseph N. Sidari, Amazon Reviewer
Jack owns a hardware store, passed down from his grandfather to his father, and now to him. He has a girlfriend - Connie. They dated in high school and then went their separate ways and are now finding each other again. Jack's normal existence is changed when he puts on his "grandfather's pants" and suddenly discovers things about his family he never knew or dreamed of, and isn't too sure about it all. Bizarre situations abound.
This is not your typical romantic comedy, and the blackmail aspect adds a bit of mystery. The characters - from Jack to Olivia and Harriet - not to mention the other young ladies - all have interesting personalities. Not quite believable, but certainly original and creative, an interesting read. Feeling adventurous? Give it a try. A note of caution though - some of the situations may be offensive to some more conservative readers.
FTC Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in the hopes that I would post an honest review as part of this blog tour. This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
About Tegon Maus
Tegon Maus was raised pretty much the same as everyone else - devoted mother, strict father and all the imaginary friends he could conjure. Not that he wasn't friendly, he just wasn't people orientated. Maybe he lived in his head way more than he should have, maybe not. He liked machines more than people, at least he did until I met his wife. The first thing he can remember writing was for her. For the life of him he can't remember what it was about something about dust bunnies under the bed and monsters in my closet. It must have been pretty good because she married him shortly after that. He spent a good number of years chasing other dreams before he got back to writing. It wasn't a deliberate conscious thought, it was more of a stepping stone. His wife and himself had joined a dream interpret group and we were encouraged to write down our dreams as they occurred. Be as detailed as you can, we were told. He was thrilled. If there is one thing he enjoys it's making people believe him and he likes to exaggerate. Not a big exaggeration or an outright lie mind you, just a little step out of sync, just enough so you couldn't be sure if it were true or not. When he writes, he always write with the effort of "it could happen" very much in mind and nothing, he guarantees you, nothing, makes him happier. He has consistently placed in the top 3 in 189 writing contest in a variety of genres and has been featured in magazines a couple of times to raise money for Saint Jude's Children's Hospital.
