Summary, etc.:
Hattie Kavanaugh went to work helping clean up restored homes for Kavanaugh & Son Restorations at eighteen; married the boss's son at twenty; and was only twenty-five 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.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2022 June #1
    Widowed at an early age, Hattie continues to work construction and cut becomes proficient in renovating and flipping homes. Loss on her latest project forces her to join The Homewreckers, a new reality show, to be able to buy the condemned Tybee Island beach house for her next undertaking. A Los Angeles film crew works with a Savannah carpentry crew and narrator McInerney easily distinguishes among the many varied characters, from the warm, sweet, Southern tones of Hattie and the curse-filled, vitriolic speech of the entitled former beach-house owners to LA producer Rebecca's strident, ignore-everyone-else voice and designer Trae Bartholomew's smarmy, disparaging commentary on the Savannah area. Familiar Southern phrases pop up occasionally, all expressively delivered. An angry former owner, a dumpster fire, a missing woman's wallet found in the house, and what might be a real romance combine in a stress-filled, profitable six weeks of restoration work. The audio's upbeat feeling is matched by the sprightly piano music introducing and ending this work. Summertime is enhanced by this audio. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
