The Homewreckers

Summary: Summer begins with Mary Kay Andrews, in this delightful summer listen about flipping houses, and finding true love.

Hattie Kavanaugh went to work helping clean up restored homes for Kavanaugh & Son Restorations at 18; married the boss’s son at 20; and was only 25 when her husband, Hank, was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Broken hearted, but determined to continue the business of their dreams, she takes the life insurance money, buys a small house in a gentrifying neighborhood, flips it, then puts the money into her next project. But that house is a disaster and a money-loser, which rocks her confidence for years to come. Then, Hattie gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: star in a beach house renovation reality show called The Homewreckers, cast against a male lead who may be a love interest, or may be the ultimate antagonist. It’s a question of who will flip, and who will flop, and will Hattie ever get her happily-ever-after.

Filled with Mary Kay Andrews’s trademark wit, warmth, junking trips, and house porn, The Homewreckers is a summer beach delight.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Mary Kay Andrews writes books with gorgeous covers that begs to be on my shelf and words that entertain me as I devour the book.


Now, it must be said that I am not a huge fan of home renovation stories (HGTV is RARELY on at my house). But I did love the cover and I adored the mystery that was a part of the story.


What I Liked:

As per usual- mad love for the cover. MAD love.

The setting of the book. I could practically see the setting. I feel like in MKA’s books, the setting is essentially a character because of her vivid description.

The romance 🙂 🙂 🙂 I won’t say nothing more than that, but I liked it.


Bottom line: For me, a MKA book is def one of my summer reads and The Homewreckers did not disappoint.
