The Monk Downstairs by Tim Farrington (24)
Rebecca is a single mother with a little girl, a carefree exhusband, a very spry mother, and a "sort of" boyfriend when she decides to rent out the downstairs of her house in order to help with the housepayments. The renter doesn't look very promising because he was a monk for 20 years, recently having left the monastery, and has a new job working at McDonald's. The story concerns Rebecca's search for happiness and balance in her life; it is well written and logical making for an enjoyable read.
