A charming romance that hinges on a case of mistaken identity. Maggie Ivey is a single mom struggling to hold it all together. When a friend signs her up for the famous Dr. Golding's 21-Day Overhaul, she leaves the first session full of hope. Dr. Golding seems to be warm, sensitive, a great listener, and gorgeous. What she doesn't realize is that this man isn't even a doctor--he's really the contractor hired to remodel his office. The real question is, can a handyman repair a broken heart?

This sweet story is hard to put down--a fun one to read at Valentine's or any time of year when you want some happily-ever-after.

I loved it. Even the cover is beautiful! Characters lived & breathed. Good story - a bit far fetched, but still very enjoyable. And a happy ending. A good effort for a first novel, definitely 5 star good to me.

I am a huge fan of Nicholas Sparks and when browsing his website one day to find out when he was going to bless us with another novel I saw his favorite book list. He raved about Handyman and so I figured it was a must read.

I enjoyed it. The story was simple to follow and the characters were easy to fall in love with. I read it in two days. It is the PERFECT book for the beach or pool side. A very light read that you don't have to really think can just enjoy.

An Accidental therapy session is the catalyst for change in this love story about two people who don't realize they're made for each other until it's almost too late.

A sweet story.

Loved it. Obviously one of her early efforts (perhaps first published title?. Linda Nichols writes so well and gives great insight into her characters. This book did not disappoint. The humor was wry and well woven into the plot.

I read this book only because Nicholas Sparks put it on his list to "read". I read it and it was hard to stay reading it. Once you got 3/4 of the way through the book it was great and hard to put down because you wanted to "finally" see how it all ended. It is a great book to take with you on the airplane.

This is a story about mistaken identity and a variation on the theme of falling in love with one's therapist. The story is sweet, sometimes humorous, and very engaging.

A cute romance novel that I enjoyed very much. Hard to put down. I orderd it for our church library after reading In Seach of Eden but didn't realize it was not Christian Fiction. A good read but it will not make it to our library.

I got this book because I had read Christian fiction books by Linda Nichols. This book is not Christian fiction. It is clean as far as having no sex scenes but it has a liberal dose of profanity. It has an interesting story line but I would not recommend it if you are looking for Christian fiction.

This is an early book by Linda Nichols. I have read all of her books and enjoyed them. This one was not written as Christian fiction and is not as good as her other books. I still enjoyed it, though I was a little disappointed that it did not have the depth that In Search of Eden and her other books do.
