Playing House


ROMANTIC COMEDY:  Bailey Meredith wants to get out into the world and show everyone what she can do with her expertise in interior design. Unfortunately, as an assistant she's more an expert in making coffee — that is, until she's offered the job of a lifetime. Wilder Aldrich sees Bailey's potential the moment he meets her, and believes she's everything he needs for his home improvement show. But it's not just her work ethic that grabs him, there's something else about the woman that he just can't seem to shake. As they work together, Wilder finds it a challenge to break through the walls Bailey has put up. Will they be able to bulldoze through those walls and make a go of it?

A thoroughly enjoyable read that will make readers smile and feel good! Ms. Chapman has brought together two characters that are focused on their work, but while one is open to the idea of love, the other isn't. There's a "will they or won't they" feel that makes this book a real page turner. The dialogue is sweet and there are some laugh-out-loud moments. Readers will enjoy simply hanging out with these characters and wondering how everything is going to pan out in the end. Certainly a read to enjoy while sitting out in the sun or inside on a chilly night in front of the fire.
