Can these opposites turn up the heat… without burning down the house?
House-flipping sensation and YouTube star Maggie Nichols can’t wait to dig into her next challenge. Arriving in tiny Kinship, Idaho, with only a cot and a coffeemaker, Maggie is prepared to restore a crumbling Victorian mansion in four months or less. She has her to-do lists, her blueprints, and her team. What she doesn’t have is time for sexy, laid-back landscaper Silas Wright.
The man takes flirtation to a whole new level. And he does it shirtless…sometimes pants-less. He and his service school-dropout dog are impressively persistent. But she’s not interested in putting down roots. Not when fans tune in to watch her travel the country turning dilapidated houses into dream homes. A short-term fling on the other hand could fit nicely into her calendar. After all, Maggie remembers what fun is like. Vaguely.
As their summer gets downright steamy, Silas manages to demolish the emotional walls she’s spent years building, sending Maggie into a panic. He’s the wrench in her carefully constructed plans. With the end of the project looming, she has a decision to make. But how can she stay when her entire career is built on moving on?
Amusing, absorbing, and incredibly romantic!
Maggie Moves On is an alluring, heartwarming tale that takes you into the life of the successful, house-flipping YouTuber Maggie Nichols as she juggles the biggest renovation she’s ever tackled, a business partner that’s ready to settle down, and a sexy, persistent landscaper who’s always available to share a smile and lend a hand.
The writing is warm and fluid. The characters, including the hardworking, sassy Maggie, the flirty, deliciously handsome Silas, and the adorable four-legged Kevin, are unique, fun-loving, and endearing. And the plot is an uplifting, lighthearted tale about life, love, family, friendship, tension, attraction, self-discovery, reconnecting with the past, special moments, community, and finding a place to call home.
Maggie Moves On was one of my most anticipated reads of 2022, and it didn’t disappoint. I purposely didn’t read any reviews for this book as I wanted it to be a complete surprise, and boy am I happy I didn’t because I loved it! How much did I love this book? Well, let’s just say if I had to be stranded on a deserted island with only one book, I’d want it to be this one. It’s funny, sweet, sexy, and downright swoony, and if Lucy Score was granting wishes, I’d be asking for each supporting character to be getting their own book.
