    Set in London England during the 1960s or 70s, features a young woman who has a few boyfriends AND a hunky male housekeeper. A cat burglar falls through her skylight, they fall in a love, pregnancy ensues and she and the housekeeper live (platonically?) happily ever after. Now I read this book ages ago and while I was at NVDPL, a patron described it to me and I could not recall title or author. Every year the patron would ask me again if I remembered and I never have. A decade later and another library system and I am still wondering. Does it ring any bells??

    Btw- the book sounds like pap but I recall that it was well written, funny and poignant. For many years I too longed for a skylight and a hunky housekeeper.

    I just received 2 general questions from one of my book club members on Tuesday.
    1) She wants to read books about kids growing up in 1970s communes (fic or non fic)–Arcadia by Lauren Groff seems like a potential fit
    2) Any fiction in which new technology features prominently (ie. text messages). This seems to be more common for teen reads such as TTYL by Lauren Myracle
