Doug Parker is a widower at age 29, and in his quiet suburban town, that makes him something of a celebrity - the object of sympathy, curiosity, and, in some cases, unbridled desire. But Doug has other things on his mind.

First, there's his 16-year-old stepson, Russ - a once-sweet kid who now is getting into increasingly serious trouble on a daily basis. Then there are Doug's sisters: his bossy twin, Claire, who's just left her husband and moved in with Doug, determined to rouse him from his grieving stupor. And Debbie, who's engaged to Doug's ex-best friend and maniacally determined to pull off the perfect wedding at any cost.

Soon Doug's entire nuclear family is in his face. And when he starts dipping his toes into the shark-infested waters of the second-time-around dating scene, it isn't long before his new life is spinning hopelessly out of control, cutting a harrowing and often hilarious swath of sexual missteps and escalating chaos across the suburban landscape.

Funny, sexy, and smart, How to Talk to a Widower is a novel about finding your way, even when you have no idea where it is you want to go. Download and start listening now!

    " This was not my favorite of his but I still really enjoyed it... "

    " Love reading a romance novel from the perspective of a male character and a male author. With an exception to the needless profanity, this is a fun, meaningful story about love lost and found. My favorite character is Russ, a short-tempered, impulsive teen who fell wholeheartedly in love with his stepfather and his family just like his deceased mother had. I'll be on the lookout for more Tropper novels. He's a great storyteller. "

    " I think Jonathan Tropper is like Nick Hornby, can write about a sad situation but make it a good read - not depressing. There are some good characters, like Doug's mother - the drama queen! I liked Russ, who despite his problems was very intuitive. "
