Goodreads: She’s a high-fashion realtor; he’s a low-maintenance mechanic. What on earth could they have in common?
Dressed in designer labels and cruising around town in her red Mercedes, workaholic realtor Harper Wilson presents the picture of success in charming Maple Falls. But Harper’s carefully cultivated image is resting on a shaky foundation. With a sudden drought in sales, she’s starting to see her professional dreams—along with her posh lifestyle—slipping away.
Car trouble brings her to mechanic Rusty Jenkins, and their unlikely friendship is taken to the next level when the laid-back Rusty allows her to give him a makeover for a charity bachelor auction. Harper soon discovers that beneath the town mechanic’s wild beard and grease-stained clothing lies a true Southern gentleman—someone with a kind heart and dreams of his own. Their chemistry is undeniable, but as they get closer, past fears and relationships start to creep in, reminding them of just how much is at stake when carefully constructed facades fall apart.
Maybe their worlds aren’t so separate after all. And maybe covering up who you really are keeps you from discovering what was always meant to be.
Ope’s Opinion: This is my third book by Kathleen Fuller. I like so much about her books, including this one – they are Christian fiction, slow moving romance, the characters have other interests besides each other, and the women are strong and independent.
Rusty and Harpers story was fun to follow. Their misunderstandings could happen to anyone. Madge ( Harpers mother ) and Don ( Harpers father ) story was not necessary and not as enjoyable. I still enjoyed the book.
I will be looking for Kathleen Fullers next book.
