Book Synopsis

Hattie Kavanaugh went to work restoring homes for Kavanaugh & Son Restorations at eighteen, married the boss's son at twenty, and became a widow at twenty-five. Now she's passionate about her work, but that's the only passion in her life.

"Never love something that can't love you back" is the advice her father-in-law gives her, but Hattie doesn't follow it and falls head over heels for a money pit of a house. She's determined to make it work, but disaster after disaster occurs, and Hattie's dream might cost Kavanaugh & Son their livelihood. Hattie needs money, and fast.

When a smooth Hollywood producer shows up in her hometown of Savannah, Georgia, she gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: to star in a beach house renovation reality show called The Homewreckers, cast against a male lead who may be a love interest, or may be the ultimate antagonist.

Soon there's more at stake than bad pipes and dry rot: During the demolition, evidence comes to light that points to the mysterious disappearance of a young wife and mother years before. With a world-weary detective investigating the case, an arsonist on the loose, two men playing with her emotions, and layer upon layer of vintage wallpaper causing havoc, it's a question of who will flip, who will flop, and if Hattie will ever get her happily-ever-after.

This book would be perfect for a lazy summer afternoon. I really enjoyed the story line. Without giving anything away the mystery plot that was a major part of the story was a nice surprise and written very well, I was guessing until the end. The one part that was iffy to me was the romance plot at the very end of the book. I felt like it came out of nowhere and was pretty rushed. It felt mostly out of place in the story. Overall I really enjoyed the book and I would definitely recommend!

A Great Vacation Read

Mary Kay Andrews does not disappoint with her latest book, The Homewreckers. Her books are always engaging and entertaining! A perfect book to start off your summer reading! Hattie Kavanagh had been through so much, her husband’s unexpected death, buying a house she thought she could fix up, but turned out to be a money pit, so was forced to sell. Hattie and her best friend Cass both work for Hattie’s father in law’s construction and renovation company, Hattie as a contractor and Cass as her foreman. Mo Lopez from Toolbox Productions comes to town to find the right opportunity for his new reality home renovation TV show. He feels that Hattie would be the perfect match for his show, but she doesn’t agree. After much convincing, she agrees. Will Hattie be able to recoup her losses? Is reality TV all that appears to be? All the twists and turns will have you turning the pages to find out. I love how Mary Kay Andrew’s books include a mystery element, are humorous, and keeps you entertained! I loved all the plot twists as well. A great vacation read!
