In RITA Award-winning author Melody Carlson's light-hearted tale, 30-something Gretchen Hanover learns that renewing a heart takes as much grace as renovating a home.

    " A fun, quick read. Gretchen's got some girl-power. "

    " this was a cute story, it was really really great!!! melody carlson nevr disapoints "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 2/6/2014

    " This was a fun read, and it went fast! The book chronicles a woman who is flipping a house. I think the backdroup of the flip keeps the pace of the story moving. It was the perfect book to read while waiting for my dad in surgery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda | 2/6/2014

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It was similar in tone to Meg Cabot's Size 14 is Not Fat. series. Pleasant uplifting read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 2/4/2014

    " This book is total fluff - a little better than the average fluff, probably worth 2.5 stars - but I'm not sure I want to admit I read it. And even sort of enjoyed it. I guess it's a better stress-reducer than consuming large quantities of chocolate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene Dickson | 1/31/2014

    " A fun and light read. The main character goes through the process of remodeling a home and in the course of events, ends up rearranging her own personal life as well. Heartwarming and fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 1/29/2014

    " I loved this book- total quick chick lit read. Fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 1/28/2014

    " I picked up the book first because I love flip flops. Then I thought a semi-spoof on HGTV (I'm a recovering addict) with a spiritual twist would be a good balance of fun and meaty. And it almost was. Yet, it never really grabbed me as much as I wanted it to. Maybe a bit too chick-litty and predictable. I did stay up late to read it all in one evening/night; I think I did this because it was sufficiently entertaining since I wasn't sleepy yet I wasn't sure I'd go back to finish it during a busy week. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy | 1/16/2014

    " Quick, easy read. My mother would say too contrived, and she would be right. The concept of the book is cute, but the writing and story line is lame. I can't understand why other readers gave this book 4 and 5 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/10/2014

    " This is a really cute/fun book! Encourages me even more to go find a fixer upper and get to work! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindamac | 12/14/2013

    " Cute story, easy to read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 11/22/2013

    " This book was so cute! Since I also am an HGTV addict and love anything to do with real estate, I knew I would love this book....it was cute without being preachy or silly and even managed to work in a fath aspect without coming off as overly religious. Very real life characterization. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary couch | 11/15/2013

    " I always enjoy this author. She writes a good story and mixes in a good dose of humor. The gal in this story buys a house to flip and since I've done the work on these type houses getting them ready to be rentals it struck a cord with me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 9/19/2013

    " Totally predictable but nevertheless enjoyable piece of fluff. I'm surprised the library didn't have this one labelled with their "religious fiction" sticker, because it definitely fits that category as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gretchen | 8/4/2013

    " This was a really good "quick-read". Not in-depth, so it wasn't stimulating, but sometimes I read just for reading's sake, not to think too hard. I enjoyed it, but it was very predictable. It had a good message. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 6/29/2013

    " Super cute and fun read. Got me back in the swing of reading, for sure. I recommend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Bahrt | 6/17/2013

    " This was an enjoyable read. It was easy to read and very predictable but it was just what I needed to distract me from the stress and chaos of life. If you are into deep and thought provoking reading this isn't for you but if you are looking for something quick and easy to read this book is great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 3/26/2013

    " Cute, fun read. Take it to the beach with you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loretta | 2/19/2013

    " This was a good read. And actually sort of inspired me. If the protagonist can flip a whole house from watching HGTV, there's hope for me in updating my own :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shalet | 1/21/2013

    " Loved this fun, quick, clean read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracy Rauch | 12/31/2012

    " I love Melody Carlson but this book did not go deep like some of her other work. Good quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/14/2012

    " i remember liking this book just fine. it's a bit of a fluffy, chick lit type book for a christian audience so it's clean. clearly not groundbreaking stuff, but a nice diversion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jamie Clarke | 10/4/2011

    " Quick read, light fare. A bit more God than I'm used to seeing but not preachy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 9/29/2011

    " liked the book til the ending. Life just doesn't happen that way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Denise | 8/3/2011

    " I read this for a book club. The first two chapters I thought were going to kill me. But it improved a little and was interesting enough to keep going. It was like 7th Heaven meets Bridget Jones Diary. It was alright. (Sorry, my friend who recommended it! I'm still anxious to read your other books!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loraine | 3/17/2011

    " I liked it. It's a fun read and is written so that I want to flip a house too! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/7/2011

    " A light read, but good. I read it in one day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shalet | 1/8/2011

    " Loved this fun, quick, clean read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 12/22/2010

    " This is just a sweet, fun book - perfect for a little mental "escape!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 12/14/2010

    " Inspirational fiction. Junk food. Quick read. Melody Carlson's writing style reminds me of Meg Cabot. Their characters seem to be very similar. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisabeth | 8/18/2010

    " This book was a fun, light, airy book. I read it really quick and found it to be a great no-brainer. The plot was predictable and uncomplicated, which I enjoy sometimes.

    Gretchen was a believable character "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darlene | 8/13/2010

    " A fun and light read. The main character goes through the process of remodeling a home and in the course of events, ends up rearranging her own personal life as well. Heartwarming and fun! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 4/27/2010

    " I loved this book- total quick chick lit read. Fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 4/19/2010

    " This book was a little hard for me to get into, but once I did, I didn't want to put it down. I guess it's considered a "Christian romance", but the references to God weren't overpowering. I am pleasantly surprised. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 4/15/2010

    " This is a really cute/fun book! Encourages me even more to go find a fixer upper and get to work! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyndi | 1/22/2010

    " This is our June book club book. A quick, easy, fun, summer read.
    Gretchen is the main character and she decides to try to fix up a dump and flip it. As usual, life gets in the way and things don't go as smoothly as she wishes them to. It is about her struggles and strengths. "

    " i thought this would be whimsical and funny but it was not... "
