Publisher's Summary

Olivia Bennett is on the tenure track at Cornell University, the resident expert on Southern women writers. After moving to upstate New York from Atlanta, she falls in love with and purchases an old, run-down farmhouse. The only catch: she knows nothing about renovating a house, taking care of land, or snow.
Joss Bauer is a New York native who grew up in her family's construction business. She has a soft spot for old houses, but no patience for overpaid debutantes who want to play at country living. When Olivia hires Joss to do the renovations on her new home, the sparks fly, in more ways than one. It turns out both women have a lot to learn about life, love, and the meaning of home. But when a scandal threatens Olivia's professional reputation, it puts her priorities and her new found love on the line.

You will love this love story.

Only issue I found was the Narrator had issues with the male voices, it was kinda funny to hear. she did however, an amazing job with everything else. Including her character with the southern accent.
This story was based around a farm house and it's renovations. The contractor that was hired turned out to be more than the owner had in mind.
This is definitely a laugh out loud book. But omg there's one point where the Author just had to create some drama that seriously made me cry at work.... Yup the kinda sadness that cause people to look at me like I was crazy... but in the same sense I was laughed quite loudly as well.
I love this book for those moments. The story was really easy to follow, fun and likeable characters that you can connect to, and, In the end, you will be rooting for them.
This is my first time Reading from this Author, and I have to say I am very impressed. And, I will be reading the rest of her works. She's quit amazing.
So, I feel you shouldn't take my word for it but it's really a must read.

Very nice story

I liked the narration even if the southern accent sounded fake...the different voices for each character made it more dramatic.
