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.

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.
