Rating: 4 Stars=Great Page Turner
Three friends, One handyman and an auction starts the excitement in Starting Over on Blackberry Lane. We meet Stefanie, Cass and Griffin, three friends in need of serious repairs ro their homes. Stefanie Stahl’s husband wants to do all the renovations to their house himself and she is fine with it if he would actually finish what he starts. The single Griffin James is in the process of trying to sell her home but has some snags that is holding her back. Cass Wilkes is dealing with a ceiling that has crashed and needs a handyman as soon as possible.
These three friends are in need of help and what better way to renovate than by hiring a handyman that joins the fundraiser that is auctioning off a handyman. Grant Masters is part of auction and is an item everyone wants. Stefanie, Griffin and Cass have a plan to bid together so the other bidders will not win.
Starting Over on Blackberry Lane is an entertaining book about friendship, matchmaking and a hint of romance. The book started off slow for me but soon picked up. The characters were well-developed and carried the storyline. I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.
