Goodreads Summary: The Fixer Upper
After a political scandal, fledgling lobbyist Dempsey Jo Killebrew is left almost broke, unemployed, and homeless. She reluctantly accepts to refurbish Birdsong, the old family place in Guthrie, Georgia.
But, oh, is Dempsey in for a surprise. “Bird Droppings” would more aptly describe the moldering Pepto Bismol–pink dump. There’s also a murderously grumpy old lady who has claimed squatter’s rights and isn’t moving out. Ever.
Furthermore, everyone in Guthrie seems to know Dempsey’s business, from a smooth-talking real-estate agent to a cute former lawyer who owns the local newspaper. It wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the pesky FBI agents who show up on Dempsey’s doorstep, hoping to pry information about her ex-boss from her.
All Dempsey can do is roll up her sleeves and get to work. And before long, what started as a job of necessity somehow becomes a labor of love and, ultimately, a journey that takes her to a place she never expected—back home again.
Review: 5 Stars
OMG…I was dying to find out the ending…but when it came I was thrilled and sad… Thrilled that it ended how I hoped it would and sad that the book was over.
I felt as if I was part of the family and friends in town and wanted a glimpse into Dempsey’s new life. Alas the book is only about one part of her life…we now know her decision and I can take comfort in knowing her life is starting over for good.
A must read!!!

Goodreads Summary: Keeper of the Bride
After Nina Cormier was jilted at the altar, the empty church exploded. Then someone tried to run Nina off the road, and she realized someone wanted her dead, but who? That’s what Detective Sam Navarro needs to find out, fast. With a nightmare unfolding around them, Sam and Nina decipher the stunning truth. Now they’re at the mercy of a brilliant madman who plays for keeps.
Tess Gerritsen, throws one twist after another until the excitement is almost unbearable.
WOW…poor Nina…left at the alter and now someone tried to kill her? Maybe? I know I’m in for a sick and twisted ride.
I just saw Gone Girl with my mom and LOVED it. I can say there were about ten things that were not in the book-some didn’t change the movie, but others were really needed and I wished were in there. IF you’ve read the book and seen the movie, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Ben Affleck rocked it in that movie…wow! I was amazing to see Nick Dunne come to life! It’s always amazing to see books you read on the big screen…now if only all the books I’ve read were made into movies.
What books have you read that were later turned into movies? Did you love the movie? Were there parts of the book did you leave out?
