Ok this was fun!! I felt like I was watching a production of a HPTV flip it show in Savannah, Georgia and a cold case being solved.

I mean I was just asking my husband how there haven’t been any remains found on one of those bubbly home reno shows, they get some dilapidated homes sometimes.

There was a crazy prologue about a cheating wife then it went into a story about Hattie Kavanaugh and her work restoring homes and a producer who is checking out the area who thinks she would be perfect for a new show idea.

Then they start to find things in this house that they bought that link back to a missing person. And there are complaints and accidents on the site. 

It’s like a murder mystery and a romance all in one. Since she seemed to have her pick of the beau’s in this area.  There’s so many fun characters but also there’s some baddies. I really enjoyed this one! 

❓ Do you watch home renovation shows or cold case files? Lol

Thank you @stmartinspress and @netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.

✨I took so many pictures when I was walking around San Jose the other day. They had all these great art pieces and these wall murals and fountains.

Synopsis:

Summer begins with Mary Kay Andrews, in this delightful summer listen about flipping houses, and finding true love.

Hattie Kavanaugh went to work helping clean up restored homes for Kavanaugh & Son Restorations at 18; married the boss’s son at 20; and was only 25 when her husband, Hank, was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Broken hearted, but determined to continue the business of their dreams, she takes the life insurance money, buys a small house in a gentrifying neighborhood, flips it, then puts the money into her next project. But that house is a disaster and a money-loser, which rocks her confidence for years to come. Then, Hattie gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: 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. It’s a question of who will flip, and who will flop, and will Hattie ever get her happily-ever-after.

Filled with Mary Kay Andrews’s trademark wit, warmth, junking trips, and house porn, The Homewreckers is a summer beach delight.
