Pretty Little Pieces by Carmen Schober

Contemporary Fiction

Sometimes it takes everything falling apart . . .

Ambitious influencer Georgina Havoc and her designer boyfriend have been dubbed "the next Chip and Joanna Gaines"--a power couple that flip homes all over Nashville--and they plan to merge their unique styles into their new home renovation show. But their relationship falls apart when he blindsides her with a "pause." Forced to convince the network to take a chance on her as a solo star, Georgina takes on the task of renovating a forgotten cottage in the tiny, tight-knit town of Tarragon, Tennessee.

Facing one heartache and setback after another, Georgina moves forward with her plan to rebuild her life and save her career, but a surprise drop-in from her troubled twin sister makes things extra messy. The unexpected presence of rugged ex-sniper Cassidy Stokes also threatens to bring all the walls that she's built crashing down.

As she puts the pieces of her previously perfect life back together, will Georgina retreat to the familiar or boldly embrace a new design?

My Thoughts

Have you ever been at the top of your game only to watch it all slide away? That's where Georgina Havoc finds herself. She's spent years building her brand in the home improvement television industry. But just as true success seems to be within her grasp circumstances out of her control begin chipping away until she's left with crumbs.

So what's a girl to do? Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again. And that's what she does. She heads out to a quaint little town that has fond childhood memories. It also has the rugged Cassidy Stokes. He's a little farther down the recovery road than Georgina but it's still an ongoing journey.

This is the first book I've read by Carmen Schober and I really enjoyed it. The story does contain a lot of fixer-upper elements so if that's your thing you are in for a treat. That's not really my thing but I liked the characters and the overall story. You can't help but cheer these two on. There are seemingly insurmountable things that should keep the two apart, but my goodness you want them to find a way to be together.

I'm looking forward to going back and reading her previous book After She Falls and I'm going to be eagerly awaiting her next novel. I hope you'll give this one a chance. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
