At least that’s what improper Southern belle Maggie Forsythe thinks after being unceremoniously dumped two weeks before getting hitched to a man even her mother approves of. Maggie has never given two figs what anyone thinks, so why is she hiding away from her South Carolina Low Country home? That is until concerned — albeit scheming — friends arrive with three options: One: Sit and mope. Two: Go home to her gallery. Three: Help them build a house for a needy family and make a difference for once. But one look at Maggie, and project foreman Josh Parker knows what kind of sweet-tea-swilling debutante he’s dealing with. Even if she does know her way around a circular saw. Sure, they have enough sparks to ignite a bonfire, but he’s corn bread to her caviar. And if there’s anything he’s learned from growing up broke, it’s better to aim low than risk everything and lose.
“Sherryl Woods is a uniquely gifted writer whose deep understanding of human nature is woven into every page.” (New York Times best-selling author Carla Neggers)

Wish I had returned it.
I found the story frankly boring and the narration poor. I wish I had returned it when I had the chance.
More emotion in the voice over.

Upscale Harlequin with a southern narrator
Upscale Southern Harlequin
Maggie was a rebelious protagonist. Her story tended to be fairly predictable but it was fun to see how it worked out.
The command attendance luncheon called by Maggie's Mom with Maggie, Josh, Josh's Mom and the stuffed shirt guy who also ended up at the table.
It was a nice book but not one to get at full price. I think I got it as a $4.95 and that was fine.
