Summary
Thirty-something Gretchen Hanover becomes a first-time house-flipper. As ideas go, it's daring and genius. She'll take out a short-term loan, buy a fixer-upper, renovate it, resell it, and use the profit for an adorable house of her own. But Gretchen's plans to flip quickly flop when the house turns out to be in worse shape than she expected. She is relying on her retired contractor-father, but he wants to draw in his carpenter friend Noah Campbell. And although Noah is handy with tools, Gretchen isn't so sure about the baggage he brings with him. Will she be able to loosen her grip on the tools when it seems Noah may be her only help?
Summary
Jilted just before her wedding, Gretchen Hanover turns to home improvement TV--and ice cream--to soothe her broken heart. With her waistline growing almost as quickly as her Lab puppy, Gretchen hits upon a perfect solution: become a first-time house flipper. She'll buy a fixer-upper, make a few repairs, sell it, and use the profits to escape her cramped quarters. But her grand plan to flip the house soon flops when her "bargain" requires more work than she thought. And the help of a certain carpenter--at first--only makes matters worse
