Todd and Tucker are settling into their relationship nicely when an early-morning phone call causes a canyon-sized riff between the two of them.
In the sequel to Hot Toddy, readers are given a small glimpse into the lives of Tucker and Todd, both the good times and the bad. Todd's mother, whom he hasn't seen for years after he was taken out of her care as a child, appears out of the blue one day. This sets Todd's perfectly organized world into a chaos and causes serious problems in this relationship with Tucker. The story was a little too short to really get into the meat and potatoes of the dysfunctional relationship between Todd and his mother, but the angst is certainly ramped up a notch or two.
The writing style seemed quite formal, and the formatting of dialogue was confusing. So often I didn't know who was talking because quotations were grouped together in paragraphs.
All in all, this was a nice sequel to Todd and Tucker's story.
