Debra Barry, a soap opera script writer and Graham Reid, the carpenter, in one of Barbara Delinsky's earlier books, republished in 1999. I am more familiar with her newer works, but found this one enjoyable.

Shaken by a painful divorce, successful television writer Debra Barry leaves New York for the beautiful countryside of New Hampshire, where she hopes to find peace and solitude to mend her wounded heart. The old house she's bought, though, needs as much repairing as her own shattered emotions. To make it the home she's always wanted, she seeks the hel of master carpenter Graham Reid, a compellingly enigmatic man seemingly as hard as granite himself.

Hiding from his own bitter past, Graham reluctantly agrees to take the job, not suspecting that his own life is about to be altered as well. As the house begins to come together, he and Debra unexpectedly find themselves laying their own emotional groundwork. Drawn together by desire, can these two wounded lovers find the courage to tear down the walls between them and build on the promise of new love?

Reviewer: Judith Agee (SmallTown, Indiana USA) -
A pleasant, fluffy, easy read.
You can read it in a few hours.
Very light weight fare.
Pleasant characters with some nice dialog.
A reprint of a book Delinsky wrote early in her career.
Along the lines of a pleasant but far from literary harlequin romance.

Trying to rebuild her life after a divorce, Debra Barry retreats to New Hampshire to sort out her emotions. Then she meets Graham Reid, a carpenter who agrees to renovate her house. People who she tried to leave behind in New York keep drifting in an out of her life and by the middle of the book you want to advise her to rip her phone out of the wall and forget everything else. When I read, a good book to me is one I can get involved in and this is one of those books.

This book was only ok for me. Mainly because it is an older book and it felt dated.
