The Homewreckers

The Homewreckers

By Mary Kay Andrews
Combine a love story, house flippers, a murder mystery, and reality TV, and you’ve got Mary Kay Andrews’s delightful latest novel. Hattie Kavanaugh is a young widow who’s struggling to make her way as a contractor restoring old houses in Savannah. When she’s approached by a reality TV producer about starring in a house-flipping show, she assumes she has nothing to lose. But sparks fly when she meets the show’s handsome but difficult designer, and quite literally when a fire threatens the project. As if that weren’t enough, Hattie finds herself drawn into a murder mystery when a body is found on the property. A page-turning delight from a reigning queen of summer reads.
