I really enjoyed this book. The characters were colorful and believable. I loved that there was a bit of history interspersed within the book, and done in a way as not to lecture. I'm a big history buff and the idea of restoring a Victorian makes me itch to get my hands dirty. Her descriptions of Aunt Inga's home allowed me to pictured the entire house in my head. (Of course, it being my dream home made it that much easier :)

I loved Avery's character. Sometimes books written in the first person get a little wordy, and while we always knew what she was thinking, there wasn't a lot of extraneous information going on in her head as can sometimes be the case. She is real, down to earth and doesn't take herself too seriously.

I am looking forward to hearing more about her funky sense of design style, too.

I enjoyed her relationships in this book and the chemistry she shares with each character.

I'm looking forward to reading the next in this series.
