"Entirely satisfying, an expert balance of warmth and compassion, terrific supporting characters, a little steamy sex, and just enough suspense to keep you from guessing how it will all go down."
--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

A sassy, sexy, sometimes poignant look at small town Southern life, as only New York Times bestseller Mary Kay Andrews can tell it, The Fixer Upper is a must-read for fans of Fannie Flagg, Sophie Kinsella, the Ya-Yas, and the Sweet Potato Queens, and for every reader obsessed with decorating and home repair. It is a truly delectable story of a woman whose professional fall from grace lands her back in a hometown she never knew, amongst a gothic Southern family she's never met, and saddled with a task she could never have imagined.

My first Mary Kay Andrews book, but not my last. Quirky characters, implausible plot, and some very questionable choices in remodeling, but a very enjoyable book nonetheless. Not sappy and the sex scenes are more cute than graphic. About a 7 hour read.

A light and fun read with some more serious issues that are dealt with using dry wit, sarcasm and pointed comments. Thoroughly enjoyed the book and its characters.

Interesting story and interesting for those who like to do a little renovation. I wish there was an epilogue at the end to tie up some story lines. A good light read with quite a bit of humour to keep you laughing.

This is a light novel; good for summer reading. The plot and character development are not very deep. It will probably appeal most to those from Georgia or with some connection to the south.
