Lindy Miller, Terry Brody
Description: "After a tough week that includes losing a big job opportunity and being dumped by her long-term boyfriend, Jenna Burke receives word that her beloved Aunt May passed away. Traveling back to her Hawaiian hometown for the reading of the will, Jenna discovers she and her sister have inherited May's dilapidated Victorian home on desirable beachfront land. The sisters can do whatever they want with the property, but there's one catch: the house must be renovated before it can be sold, and Jenna has to oversee the work. Their Aunt even stipulated the contractor for the job--Ben Fletcher--who has a gift for making things beautiful again. He also has another skill: driving Jenna crazy. Jenna vows to sell the property the moment the job is done. But as Aunt May's broken old house starts to feel like home again, Jenna is torn between the life she's been chasing in the city, and the one she'd left behind." - back cover
