About the Book:

Author: Sheila Roberts
Publisher: Harlequin Mira
Pages: 384
Genre: Women’s Fiction/Romance
Stefanie Stahl has a husband with renovation ADD. He can't seem to finish anything he starts and her house is littered with his "projects." If he doesn't smarten up, she swears she's going to murder him and bury him under the pile of scrounged lumber in the backyard.  

Her friend Griffin James is suddenly single and thinking maybe she needs to sell her fixer-upper and follow her career bliss up the ladder of success, even if that scary ladder is clear across the country. Getting her place ready to sell proves harder than she originally thought. She needs help.  

She's not the only one. Cass Wilkes, their neighbor, has an empty nest—with a leaking roof. When her ceiling crashes in, she knows it's time to do something. When Grant Masters offers his handyman services at a fund-raiser auction, the three women go in together to outbid the competition and win their man. (Cass's friends think she should win Grant in a different way, too!) Now it's time to make some improvements…in their houses and their lives.

I was sent this book for review, and I am very happy I was introduced to Sheila Roberts writing.

"'Puppies are great,' Charley agreed. Men are even better. Why don't you splurge and get both?"

This was my first Sheila Roberts read, and I can say I was pretty happy. I was a little worried since this was the 10th book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. I never felt lost and the story builds upon the characters and town of Icicle Falls.

I really enjoyed the plot of this book. This is actually three stories about three different women, but I really loved that they are all connected. You get to read about their own journey, but also about their friendship with one another. There were certain parts of each character that I think you can really identify with which made it even more special.

I really enjoyed the writing style as well. I actually found myself grinning or laughing at some parts.

It was also a cute touch with the recipes at the end of the book!

I want to read more about Icicle Falls and these characters, so I will be picking up another book in this series.
