So Valerie creates a care agency, Home Health Hunks, staffed by attractive younger men. Valerie's idea is filled with potential
and potholes. As she navigates the tricky road to satisfying her mom as well as her own ambition, she falls in love with one of her employeesKeithand learns about the true meaning of success.
This story targets baby-boomer women. Most of these women have dealt with, or will deal with, the dilemma of how to care for aging parents. "Hunka Hunka" tackles this serious subject with the type of humor we all need to keep our beloved parents from driving us nuts. It also reminds women they're never too old to "go for it," as Helen does with a romance of her own. But the primary theme is: Don't worry so much about tomorrow that you forget to enjoy today.
