Time for a Change--or Three!

Stefanie Stahl has a husband with renovation ADD. He can't seem to finish anything he starts and her house is littered with his "projects." If he doesn't smarten up, she swears she's going to murder him and bury him under the pile of scrounged lumber in the backyard.

Her friend Griffin James is suddenly single and thinking maybe she needs to sell her fixer-upper and follow her career bliss up the ladder of success, even if that scary ladder is clear across the country. Getting her place ready to sell proves harder than she originally thought. She needs help.

She's not the only one. Cass Wilkes, their neighbor, has an empty nest--with a leaking roof. When her ceiling crashes in, she knows it's time to do something. When Grant Masters offers his handyman services at a fund-raiser auction, the three women go in together to outbid the competition and win their man. (Cass's friends think she should win Grant in a different way, too!) Now it's time to make some their houses and their lives.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Can three women really share one man? Best friends Stefanie Stahl, Griffin James, and Cass Wilkes are about to find out when they pool their resources to bid on the services of Grant Masters at a charity fund-raiser. Stefanie desperately needs someone to finish all the home-renovation projects her husband begins but never finishes. After breaking up with her fiancé, Griffin wants to sell her house and make a fresh start in New York, but first she needs someone to get her place shipshape. Cass' ceiling made an unexpected appearance on her dining-room table, so she needs a new roof ASAP. All three friends hope Grant will be the solution to their home-repair problems, never realizing that one of them might turn out to be the solution to Grant's problem of whom he can come home to at the end of a long working day. No one writes emotionally satisfying, warmhearted tales of small-town life quite like Roberts (Home on Apple Blossom Road, 2016), as she proves in the tenth book in her Icicle Falls series that Lake Wobegone has nothing on this Washington town when it comes to spirited charm and quirky humor.--Charles, John Copyright 2017 Booklist"
