Item Description...
In a small town where Project Restoration everyone knows everything, Ethan Willis, a widowed builder with a young son named Chase, has made a career out of restoring old houses, like the Carter Mansion, but when a young, cute, ambitious reporter suddenly starts chatting with Willis, Chase worries about the situation and must confront the hidden guilt of his mother's death. Original.

Publishers Description

Ethan Willis has made a career out of restoring old houses like the Carter Mansion so he’s an expert with doors and windows. He knows his way around a toolbox, a construction site, and anything else having to do with rebuilding. If only he could do the same with his own life. Tragically widowed and left with a young son, he’s done the best he could, but now that Chase has become a teenager that best somehow isn’t quite good enough.

For his part, Chase doesn’t know what he’d do without baseball, his best friend Elliott and the secret hideaway even his dad doesn’t know about. What he does know is that the reporter lady who suddenly started chatting with his dad can’t be a good thing.

In a small town where everyone knows everything, does an outsider—a young, cute, ambitious reporter-kind-of-outsider like Cameron Dane—even have a prayer of getting to know the handsome but moody builder? Does it matter that they both hold secrets from their pasts? And can Chase ever be freed from the hidden guilt of his mother’s death? Only time, and a special kind of patience, will tell.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not too bad  Apr 19, 2010
I got this book when it was offered as a free download for my kindle. Not expecting much due to this I thought that it ended up being a good read. The main character's desire to remain true to the past led to a somewhat perdictable storyline but still enjoyable and somewhat page turning. Although labeled as a piece of christian literature I didn't find that label to be too opressing. It wasn't until the last quarter of the book that the christian "aspect" of the book really seemed to come into play thru the use of a few bible verses and more focus on the church and faith. I found that the bible verses that were inserted into the text though were easy to somewhat skim over in additon to the inspirtational quotes that were located at the end of each chapter. Skimming over these parts did not make you miss anything in the book and could have been omitted.
Just couldn't get into it....  Jan 27, 2010
I honestly gave this book my best effort. I just couldn't get into it... there were so many descriptions about remodeling houses and construction that I found my mind wandering to other things. I hate giving a bad review, but I can honestly say I tried to like it and just couldn't get into the story.
Not sappy!  Jan 7, 2010
I guess since this book was a free Kindle download, I expected a typical sappy and predictable love story. However, I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed this book. It flowed, was well-written and I did not want the story to end...
Not A Romance But A Love Story  Jan 3, 2010
More than a little pleasantly surprised.

Inside are real characters with real personalities. Not some Barbie doll romantics where boyfriend and girlfriend are so perfect it makes you want to gag. No these are real people who act real. A man who berates his child in front of the woman he's dating. The boy who walks away from the scolding parent. In addition to home restoration, this book's central theme is forgiveness.

This isn't a romance. It's a love story. God's love for us and how we extend that love to others through forgiveness just as He has forgiven us.

Oh some things about Ethan I couldn't stand. He wants his way on a job site even though it's not his property and he is the contractor. He thinks things should remain the same. And that's his prerogative but not his home. His living in the past extends to other things as well.
i did enjoy this read...  Jan 2, 2010
the writer shares some of my passions, old houses and historic renovations, so perhaps i'm prejudiced. The human storyline was pleasing as well, with a Christian slant that I enjoyed. I hope there's a new insight to forgiveness when others read this one!
