Summary:

“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.

    I got to about the 9th hour of this book when I couldn't take it anymore. The story has many stories within the main story although I'm not sure what that exactly was--what it the romance, the court case, the story with the old lady, with her parents???? The book also had way too many references to lables--starbucks, Milano's, Michael Jackson....and on and on. I thought that the author was hoping for an endorsement from a company or one of the people she named in the book. It was beyond silly! This book drags on and on and could have been wrapped up so much earlier. I also found the main character to be stupid to the point that the mess she was in became unbelievable. She's top of her law school class and the things she found herself in were unbelieveable. Lastly, she was supposed to be in her late 20's and the narrator could not pull that age off in her narration or her voice. I found myself not wanting to hear the book and then recalled why I joined Audiobooks --to enjoy listening to books. That's when I hit delete. Sorry but this book is a pass!

    I enjoyed this light hearted book and the cantankerous old lady who was a delight and made me smile. Well written and well read.

    I loved it! I love Mary Kay Andrews! The Fixer Upper is smart, funny, and light hearted. Another sweet ending for a character you come to love. If you're looking for a good book to read this summer, you can't go wrong with The Fixer Upper.
