The delightful New York Times bestselling author returns with a hilarious novel about one woman's quest to fix up her house . . . and her life 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

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.
