Sherryl Woods is a personal friend (that being said)
It was all right a rather obviouss plot not the best she can do she is (myopinon) a much better author then this book potrayed
Fun, fun, fun. great people and a great idea.
I have never read Sheryl Woods before, but this book has got me looking for more! It is such a fun read...I really enjoyed learning about Gracie, the main character. At the start of the book you get a glimpse of the work-aholic Gracie, who works for a high-end hotel chain. She is unrelenting in her quest for detail and perfection - unlike her boss who only cares about "the bottom line." This boss then proceeds to push her to her limit and she abruptly quits. Thus begins Gracie's quest .....learning how to have a life.
I loved the playful craziness of Gracie's world. The characters were believable and charming - the setting was one that you could actually picture in your head, and the story was totally delightful.
If you love happy endings, and are looking for a book that will make you smile (even at the very end) you will love this book!!
This is a delightful contemporary romance between a workaholic woman and a laid back Southern gentleman. What makes it such a great read is the strength of its secondary characters. There's her former boss (is he really just interested in her business know how?), his extended family filled with needy relatives (irresponsible cousin, widowed cousin, elderly aunt, benignly neglected second cousin), and a host of small town gossips and well meaning meddlers. Add in the renovation of a Victorian home with a ghost and some family secrets and you've got a good story.
