The Fixer Upper
Finding a man is like buying a house: sometimes you have to look beyond the exterior to see the potential underneath.
As an estate agent, Alex’s job is to create happy-ever-afters. It’s just a shame she can’t work the same magic on her own life. Her long-term boyfriend Thomas still lives with his mother, and her hopes of them taking the next step are dashed when he announces he’s spending all his savings (savings she’d quite hoped he’d want to put towards their future home) on an ‘artist retreat’ in San Francisco.
With Thomas thousands of miles away, getting a little too friendly with his fellow artistes, Alex strikes up a friendship with her new neighbour, Callum. Taciturn, grumpy and nerdy, Callum couldn’t be more different to Alex’s bubbly personality.... So why is he the one she wakes up wanting to talk to?
As they get to know each other, Alex starts to wonder if the answer to all her problems might be closer to home than she thinks…

The Fixer Upper was a fun and easy read. It has laugh-out-loud moments and great characters. While a bit predictable, the story was low-key, low-drama, and perfect for romance lovers who don't want a lot dragging them through the book. If you need a book to decompress to, The Fixer Upper is for you.
Alex was a fun main character. Her life isn't perfect, but then who of us have perfect lives? The secondary characters rounded out the story nicely. I enjoyed the fast-paced slow burn romance. The book kept me engaged throughout.
I was provided a copy of this book.
