This is the second book by Sophie Sullivan. Though it is not being marketed (at least that I’ve seen) as a series, the same family appears in this book as in Ten Rules for Faking It. Though not necessary, I highly recommend you read Ten Rules first. (If not first, it is still worth the read)
Grace inherited a beach house from her grandparents she didn’t know. When she finally moves in, her next door neighbor, Noah, wants to buy it from her so he can expand his yard. Grace thinks the house will connect her to the family she never knew and refuses. As animosity builds, somehow the two end up working together. Noah needs her to help him redo his house. Since Grace is getting ready to graduate with a degree in Interior Design, she jumps at the chance to work on her first house.
I am a huge fan of the way that Sophie Sullivan writes. She has a way about her that makes the story flow naturally and seemingly effortless. Sullivan does a great job on establishing each characters personality and is able to balance them off each other. Where one character fails, the other succeeds. The supporting characters also play such an integral part that help develop the story. I simply cannot wait for the next story from Sullivan and with two more brothers and a sister left, I hope the story is about Noah and Chris’ family. (Chris is from Ten Rules and makes appearances in this book.)
Many thanks to Net Galley and St. Martins Press for providing me with an ARC of this book.
