Love comes along when it's least wanted
Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story… And when his lovely new neighbour, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodelling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defences she keeps building around herself.

But Sullivan can't seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet…

Best friends find hunky men and everlasting love in Foster's latest charmer. When hairstylist Honor Brown buys a fixer-upper in a rundown neighborhood in the generic small American town of Clearbrook, she discovers that her new neighbor puts the gent in gentrification. Just the sight of Honor as she climbs out of the moving van sends a shiver through Jason Guthrie. Never mind that Honor's best friend, Lexie Perkins, is just as pretty in her own way; his carnal receptors are tuned to Honor's frequency. Even though she's determined to do all the rehab work herself, it turns out Honor can use an occasional hand from Jason sometimes with a hammer, sometimes without. Meanwhile, Lexie starts hooking up with Sullivan Dean, another neighbor. The foursome's road to a double happy ending is paved with Foster's characteristic breezy banter and uncomplicated plot. Her no-fail formula is sure to please her fans.
