Publisher's Summary

Shawn is single, 29, the full-time carer of his Alzheimer's-stricken mother, and a frequent victim of Murphy's Law - although his family calls it Shawn's Law. Other than caring for mom, his day consists of painting nude men and spying on the guy who walks his dogs along the street every day at four o'clock. When Shawn takes a spectacular fall on his front steps, who is there to witness it other than the man of his dreams?
Harley doesn't believe in Shawn's Law - but he soon changes his mind.
The two men make it through a memorable first date and Shawn's sexual insecurities to begin a relationship stumbling toward love. But when Shawn's Law causes Harley to be injured, Shawn is determined to save Harley's life the only way he knows how - by breaking up with him. Not once, but twice. Throw in a serial killer ex-boyfriend, several deadly Australian animals, two dogs called Bennie, a mother who forgets to wear clothes, an unforgiving Town Council, and a strawberry-flavored condom dolly, and Shawn's Law is one for the books.

Would you listen to Shawn's Law again? Why?

Yes, it's hilarious and the narrator suits the book.


What other book might you compare Shawn's Law to, and why?

I like this almost as much as 'Tell Me It's Real' by TJ Klune


Which character – as performed by Casey Hunter – was your favourite?

You have to love both Shawn and Harley, although in this case the secondary characters, including the bloodthirsty nurse, are just as good.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It definitely makes you laugh, Shawn deals with each disaster so stoically, and I share a little of his luck! But Shawn's caring nature and his love for his mum also touches you and it does bring the reality of ageing parents home.


Any additional comments?

Renae Kaye is a wonderful writer, and to be honest I don't think audio has done her justice, I am pleased to say that 'Shawn's Law' breaks the streak.
