Summary:

Oliver Clock has everything arranged just so. A steady job running the family funeral parlour. A fridge stocked with ready meals. A drawer full of colour-coded socks. A plan (of sorts) to stay trim enough for a standard-sized coffin. And in florist Marie, he's even found the love of his life--not that she's aware of it. When a terrible tragedy takes Marie out of his life but leaves him with her private journal, he discovers too late that she secretly loved him back. Faced now with an empty love life, a family funeral business in trouble, a fast-approaching fortieth birthday and a notebook of resolutions he's never achieved, Oliver resolves to open himself up to love--and all the mess that comes along with it. But, with a habit of burying his feelings, can he learn to embrace his lovability and find the woman who will make him feel whole? -- from back cover.
