Personal Injury lawyer Marcy Paglinowski is determined to make her mentor and boss Win Downey proud of her. Her first big solo case is against Planners Building and Design Construction site. Her client claims that due to negligence he was injured on this site. Marcy goes spying on the site to try and get the evidence needed to prove their case. In the process she sees the construction site manager abusing his puppy and gets in a boat load of trouble trying to rescue the dog from the bully.

Just when it seems that Marcy is in way over her head with the bully, in steps Truman Fleming, a construction site worker who comes to her and the puppy's rescue. In the process of trying to help out, Truman manages to get himself fired from his job.

This book is a series of misconceptions by the main characters, as Marcy isn't the spoiled little rich girl that Truman assumes she is and Truman isn't the dirt poor construction worker that Marcy assumes him to be.

Ms. Fox has created a cute fast paced story about misunderstandings that shows in many cases love is found where you least expect it. Man At Work is written with Ms. Fox's trademark humor and gives the reader many laughs along the way to the ever important happy ending. Ms. Fox keeps getting better with each book and her trademark style of humorous storytelling should make her a star among fans of this genre. She is a fresh new voice in the love and laughter market and I look forward to her next release.
