Inspirational Romance | Holiday | Inspirational

Alexis Blake has one chance to land her own show on the Home Project Network and nothing, not an uncooperative client, a job site without indoor plumbing, or a challenging videographer, is going to stand in her way. Elsie, at seventy-plus, is far from the ideal client, but she knows exactly what she wants her fieldstone house to look like, and no designer can tell her otherwise. Gabe Langley, the man with the camera, is caught in the middle and it is his wisdom and warmth that just may be the bridge that will bring these two women together. Can they restore more than just a house and bring about special, almost lost forever Christmas memories?

Great post and would love to read and post reviews on a few
sites. I have to get into the mood for Christmas as
disabled and can;t shop nor drive so i rely on good tv such
as watching the restoring of house and such.
Peggy Clayton 12:33pm November 22, 2016)

I love feel good holiday stories.
Sue Farrell 4:02pm November 22, 2016)

Sounds like a great read
Stephanie Allen 5:18pm November 22, 2016)

I had to look up shiplap to figure out that it's a rough-
sawn pine re-purposed for remodeling like in HGTV fixer-
uppers. Owning older homes is always opening a Pandora's
Box, you never know what you'll find behind the walls and
under the floorboards. We found hardwood under linoleum
in 2 homes and hired a quality refinisher who made those
oak floors as smooth as butter with a lot of sanding and
coats of polyurethane. The floors ended up being good
for sliding in socks for my kids. The knob and tube
wiring was replaced in one home and we pretty much had it
all rewired as long as the kitchen walls were apart.
Good luck on your remodel and it's refreshing to learn
about others up for the challenge of a home with age

Yaritza Santana 6:35pm November 22, 2016)

I pictured your house perfectly in your comment
section, so I know that I'm going to enjoy your
Christmas book!! Every year I say I'm going to read
one, then I back out. This year, I think yours might
just be my first one!! Congratulations on what I'm
sure will be a big Christmas hit!!
Peggy Roberson 8:34am November 23, 2016)

Love the concept of the book. My hubby loves those shows and
sometimes I watch. One is playing in the background as I type.
Thanks for this opportunity.
Nancy Luebke 11:02pm November 23, 2016)

I love old homes. So much more personality than the new,
'cookie cutter' houses that no one seems to have designed
with love. I can't wait to read your book.
Irene Menge 9:12am November 24, 2016)

I can't wait to read this book.
Mary Smith 11:26am November 25, 2016)

Your blog was very interesting. Truthfully, I enjoy seeing the results of a restored old home, but don't want to do it myself.
