Overview


She's on the job…and out of his league.

Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison is determined to shake off her sheltered lifestyle and overbearing parents. She heads to her grandfather’s small town of Kortville, ready to roll up her sleeves and work for the family construction business. She’ll prove her worth, even if it means answering to the company’s ruggedly handsome co-owner, Matt.

Matt Shaw just wants to run his business, spend time with the niece he’s raising on his own, and give back to the townspeople who have stood by him. Managing a spoiled-rotten princess he knows he’ll never be good enough for? Not part of his plan. But as he gets to know Veronica, he learns there’s more to her than her beautiful looks and designer clothes. She’s got a heart as rich as her background. With the quirky townspeople rallying against Veronica inheriting her grandfather’s business, it’s up to Matt to try to drive her out of town. But how can he, when instead she’s driving her way into his heart?

    Review:


    "Construction Beauty Queen" by Sara Daniel was a very good contemporary romantic read. This was another good love story that evolved around Matt and Veronica that was sweet and funny read. All of the characters were colorful and well developed and some really having you to laughing out loud. This was a emotional story in that you find Veronica was just trying to 'fulfull her dreams against everyones will' especially those towns people who did like or appreciate her even being there. "Her grandfather tells her she can work for his construction firm for thirty days, and if she is successful then she can take over his distribution company he owns."


    Then there was Matt who what the owner of the 'Kortville Construction Company'who wasn't happy that she was there and having her work for him. Now, what is this all about?...Poor Veronica would have to not only prove to herself, grandfather, whole town and Matt but she must win them all over. Will she be able to do that? This is the time that I say you must pick up the excellent read to see how Ms. Daniel will present it all to the reader.


    We see from the read that Matt Shaw has lost his brother, sister in law in a accident. He has the care of his niece and has also taken over his brother's company and with that has become a big part of the town.


    So, will this hero and heroine finally be able to get pass all that has been put in front of them come together and work out the real problem? You will have to pickup this read to find out. If you are looking for a good read I would recommend "Construction Beauty Queen" to you as a good read.

    3.5 stars - Nice Story - Sweet Characters - Easy Read

    This book is really sweet and really easy to read. The story is nice - it's set at a nice pace, and overall it was really nice. I didn't particularly connect with the characters, but I still enjoyed the book. There isn't a lot of action/drama or twists in the book, but it moves along nicely and I still had to know what happened to the characters. Anyone could read this book and not be offended - in my opinion. There are not really adult moments - however - it is classified as an adult book due to a few situations that arise between Matt & Veronica.
    Veronica - was an ok lead female. She wasn't whiny or anything like that but she got on my nerves a little because she is inside her head so much... she never did anything that she thought - never said it either - which just bugged the hell out of me...
    Matt - was ok as well. He was a lot like Veronica in the fact that he seemed to always be in his own head... I loved his story with his family and his niece.
    Neither character wanted to take a chance on the other... that drove me bonkers!

    Aside from that aspect, I enjoyed this book. Like I said above - it is a nice story with nice characters. The pace was good - I was never questioning what was going on. I did really like how everything in the story revolved around the two main characters but still included the entire town, Jenny, and Veronica's previous contacts. I would have like to see more of what happened after the Grand Opening - like maybe an Epilogue or something.
    But, I did really think this book was well done.
