After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father's wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she's not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.
Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist's assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn't the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn't the only thing that needs a little TLC….

I think this is my favorite Kristan Higgins romance. In my opinion, Higgins turned into a great writer with this book. I'd read a few of her earlier books, but started paying attention to her craft with this one. It's funny, sweet, sexy without the sex, and James. Oh James. We should all have a James in our lives.
I love most of her books, but this one just ended weird. Like everything is okay, then horrible, then okay, the end. Not my favorite.
Great book. Love all her books.
