Author Event with Brooke Fossey
Meet aerospace engineer and debut author Brooke Fossey at your Dallas Flagship HPB on April 14th at 7 P.M.

ABOUT THE BOOK- THE BIG FINISH
Meet Duffy, an old curmudgeon who lives in an assisted living home.

Meet Josie, a desperate young woman who climbs through his window.

Together, theyre going to learn its never too lateor too earlyto change your ways.

For Duffy Sinclair, life boils down to one simple thing: maintaining his residence at the idyllic Centennial Assisted Living. Without it, hes destined for the roach-infested nursing home down the roadand after wasting the first eighty-eight years of his life, he refuses to waste away for the rest. So, he keeps his shenanigans to the bare minimum with the help of his straight-laced best friend and roommate, Carl Upton.

But when Carls granddaughter Josie climbs through their bedroom window with booze on her breath and a black eye, Duffys faced with trouble thats sticking around and hard to hidefrom Centennials management and Josies toxic boyfriend. Before he knows it, hes running a covert operation that includes hitchhiking and barhopping.

He might as well write himself a one-way ticket to the nursing homeor the morgue. Yet Duffys all in. Because thanks to an unlikely friendship that becomes fast familyhis life doesnt boil down the same anymore. Not when he finally has a chance to leave a legacy.

In a funny, insightful, and life-affirming debut, Brooke Fossey delivers an unflinching look at growing old, living large, and loving big, as told by a wise-cracking man who didnt see any of it coming.
