The Vacuum Chronicles by by Rick Johnson & Natalie Adler

Goodreads Review

Mild-mannered Myles Mitchell wasn’t looking for love that day in Daly’s Diner when he met Yvette Luponski. The thirty-two-year-old accountant was happy with his vacuums and daily lunches at Daly’s. But from the first time he insulted her he was head over heels for the waitress. Join Myles on his rollercoaster love life with
Yvette and the many different characters that frequent the same greasy spoon,
including guest appearances by TT from Rick Johnson’s Trailer Trash

Myles is a middle aged virgin and it fits he has a special relationship with his hoover. Although scared that he’ll die alone he has come to terms with it. That is until he meets a waitress at Daly’s diner.

Yvette works at the diner and is intrigued by Myles. Through Murphy’s Law they become friends and then Yvette becomes his girl. I peed my pants when it came to Myles meeting the parents. But at some point it swayed too much into ridiculous territory.

All in all a pleasant read and I wish I could have given it more than 3 stars. Please note that this is my personal opinion on the book and that each person will feel differently about it when they read it. In this case it is me that didn't sync with the book.

On a scale from 1 to 10 in how bizarre this book is I give it 10. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this book to be honest. I didn’t know if I should pity Myles or hug him. I think I felt more empathy for him for the poor sod that he is. This is a book about normal looking people and normal people. It is a down to earth read. There were also a lot of funny moments in the book but there were some things that I think that some people could be offended by.
