Publisher's Summary

When Jack and Denny Smith decided to build a vacation dream house in Baja, California, they had no idea they were entering a phase of their lives "that would capture the fancy of readers throughout the United States". Through a series of strange and whimsical adventures, they would find that building a house takes God and Mr. Gomez.

As their house took form first in their imaginations and then on paper, little things went wrong along the way. The building site had a way of moving slightly each time they visited it, and by the time the foundation was laid, it had moved to the middle of the road. Gomez got around that by simply moving the road. Fortunately, Gomez was always on hand to provide the solution, with the philosophy that all practical problems can be solved with a little time and a little tequila.

    "Not glitzy but"

    Interesting listen, not fast paced or suspenseful. But pleasant, brings back the aura of a simpler time, where people's word and values were worth noting.

    NA


    Have you listened to any of William Dufris’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Definitely not. We couldn't bear the idea that it would ever end!


    Any additional comments?

    The writer put us in the picture. We lived it with him every step of the way.
