Tin Cans is a humorous contemporary fiction novel written by Lise Freeman. Lana was co-owner of the Florida Manufactured Home Store along with her cousin and best friend, Tedi, and her other best friend, Toby, was their manager. They performed miracles of all kinds, mostly involving finding used trailers, refurbishing them and turning over their customers to one or another specialist who financed those with bad credit. The business boasted two sites, one in Hollywood and the other in West Palm Beach, which were manned by a collection of odd and eclectic personalities. Lana and her friends had good lives; they were devotees of adult beverages, especially those which came with olives stuffed with blue cheese, and had no lack of entertainment options in their corner of the world. Lana had been suffering, however, with a series of recurring nightmares that she suspected had something to do with her decision whether to keep the Florida Manufactured Home Store going or try yet again to find an occupation that would be a passion rather than a burden. Shutting down the business was a difficult choice as she cared so much about her employees and knew they depended upon their incomes.
Lise Freeman's humorous contemporary fiction novel, Tin Cans, had me running Google searches on Delray Beach and wondering just how hard it would be to relocate there. Lana, Tedi and Toby seemed to be having so much fun in their little bit of tropical paradise that it beckoned as the perfect destination for my next move. Freeman's story is a well-written and compelling blend of humor and real life as Lana ponders her future and weighs her obligations to her staff. I loved following the antics of these three good friends and got a real kick out of Evita, Lana's extroverted and original mom. Tin Cans is a most impressive debut novel, and it's most highly recommended.
