Can a broken heart be renovated like an old house? Kit’s life came to a halt when her husband slapped her with a divorce. Finding herself without a job or a place to live, she’s forced to take Tunney Nichols up on his offer of cheap rent for his parent’s house.The catch: she must allow him to renovate while she’s living there. Out of fear, Kit tells a lie she soon regrets as she is drawn to the sexy man plastering and painting his way into her heart.
Can Sarah forget the abuse from her late husband? Can she fix her heart and the hearts of her children?  With her two children in tow, Sarah relocates to be near her sister, she meets Jim, a neighbor and English professor. A mutual interest in writing, paves the way for a friendship that blossoms into romance. But is Jim the right man for Sarah or does her old college sweetheart still light her fire? 
Let's look at some other Victorian Homes that have been beautifully renovated, too, while you take a peek at a SHORT EXCERPT:
#1. Tan roof house
Kit Alexander ordered a Cosmopolitan, sat back, her heart racing in anticipation of
tomorrow’s departure. After twelve years of marriage, a career in banking and raising an eleven year-old daughter, Kit was finally going to live her dream of becoming a published author.
 With their daughter safely enrolled in boarding school, she could accompany her husband
on a world tour as the newest band member of Blue Waters band. Tagging along as a band wife,  Kit planned to write a book about her experiences.
 A tinny version of Johnny’s favorite song came up. The familiar sound meant a text message arrived on her phone, causing her to put down her drink. 
#2 - Black & White house
#3 Light Blue House
Are you all packed? Is Johnny there yet? Wishing you an amazing trip, Hugs, Sarah.
Kit typed in,
Yes, no. Our first three cities are Amsterdam, London and Prague. Thanks,lady. Hugs, Kit.

#4 White house with pumpkins
Sipping her Cosmo, Kit looked around La Nuit Fran├žaise—a posh, intimate French
restaurant decorated in turquoise, red and gold, tucked into the west side of Manhattan. Beautiful people dressed in expensive clothing pretending to be someone important filled the restaurant. In addition to paying through the nose for the good food, they were also paying to be seen. Save me from such pretension.


#5 Tan house with purple sky
Wearing a sexy dress in midnight blue silk, her dark cerulean blue eyes shining, her spun gold hair draping well below her shoulders in loose curls, she was the loveliest woman in the room.
A man approach her table, she smiled at her husband, Johnny, as he plopped down in the empty chair across from her.
#6  Light red and white house

He ordered a beer plus another Cosmopolitan for Kit.
 “You look great, Kit,” Johnny said, taking a swig of- his beer. His gaze lowered to her
neckline then returned to her face.
“A fresh look for a new start…tomorrow I launch a new life. We both do.” She picked up
the second Cosmo and took a sip.
“We need to talk about tomorrow,” Johnny said, looking down at the silverware.

House #7... that house calls to me... serene... tranquility and the gentle breeze from the water

Love this idea Jean

Toss up between #6 and 7. #6 looks as if it needs a lot of work, but I love the setting in #7! And I'd love to explore #1....yeah, I can't make up my mind.....

Jennifer Labelle said...

My first choice would be #7. It's absolutely gorgeous and I love that it's by the water. My second would be #4 the white house with the pumpkins. Simple, yet elegant.

My favorite is #3 Light Blue House, being blue first and I love that round part (not sure what it's called) but I would totally make that a reading nook!

House #2. It's cute and compact and looks like it would be fun to explore.

I choose house #7 the black and white one on the water. I love the wrap around porch! I have a thing for porches. And...it has a lot of windows that look out on the water, which would be lovely with the moonlight shining on it at night while sitting on that awesome porch!

House #3 would be great for a single person or a couple. #4 would be great for a small family, and #7 would be perfect for a large family and a great place to grow up.

I have to go with #7. I can see myself sitting out on the porch. And I can picture myself putting multicolored Christmas lights on the tree.
