    Heartwarming

    What a fun and touching read! I originally picked up this book because of the North and Central Florida setting. (I know each area well!) But I was immediately drawn in by the characters. It was easy to identify with Meg and how she felt about Ashford House from the beginning. And Wade was a likable character from the start as well. I was especially drawn to his quiet unassuming demeanor and his code of honor. Even the children in the book, though secondary characters, were written quite well. And Roone, Wade's father, was just plain fun! The settings were written with surprising accuracy. Mount Esther could easily double for Live Oak! I think the author did a superb job in getting the small town feel just right! When I finished this book I had a smile on my face and a happy, refreshed feeling. There's just something about a small town romance!

    Heart warming romance in a house with attitude!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this tale of NY cop-turned-small-town-sheriff and a dynamite auctioneer whose love for the same house soon lures them into each other's arms. The Victorian home with it's quirky history offers a perfect backdrop for love to grow. Don't miss this story!

    A book to enjoy, Your House or Mine?

    Cynthia Thomason is an incredible storyteller who keeps us in suspense and describes characters we recognize and get attached to. While Meg Hamilton is a spirited, all-American young mother, Wade Murdock is the deputy sheriff we fall in love with. And the house they both want holds a special place in the reader's heart.

    excellent romance

    I loved 'Your house or mine?' by Cynthia Thomason. Her hero and heroine both want the same thing, but neither one can have it, at least not at first! There is a terrific secondary mystery, and the romance is wonderful and completely engaging. I wanted Meg and Wade to find their happy ever after. If a house could have a personality, I think Ms. Thomason's Ashford House fits the bill.

    amusing contemporary romance

    Orlando resident Meg Hamilton learns that her beloved nonagenarian Aunt Amelia Ashford has been placed in a home as she recovers from a fall and shows signs of dementia. Since her aunt already quit claim deed her Mount Esther house to Meg, the younger woman decides that relocating with her ten year old son Spencer might be good for them as the Colonial Auction House business that she owns with her irresponsible brother Jerry is floundering. In Mount Esther, Meg meets Deputy Sheriff Wade Murdock, a former New York cop. Wade informs Meg that he paid 20K as a down payment on the home. Apparently Amelia has spent much of it buying all sorts of stuff, mostly still unopened, from catalogues. As Meg and Wade struggle with ownership problems and trying to do the right thing, they begin to fall in love. However she distrusts males ever since her former husband deserted her and Spence; he still feels guilt over his wife¿s death and how much that has shaken his daughter Jenny. --- YOUR HOUSE OR MINE is an amusing contemporary romance with a serious undertone and a touch of intrigue. The lead characters are terrific as they learn how difficult it is to court someone with kids hanging around. The children are solidly drawn as they have abandonment troubles caused by a desertion and a death respectively. Amelia is a fabulous soul who brings to life the aging crisis that affects the sandwich generation. Throw on top of that legal problems at the auction house for selling stolen goods and Amelia¿s deceased uncle¿s buried treasures from his scams. Fans will enjoy this fine tale.--- Harriet Klausner

    Three Cheers for Aunt Amelia!

    Obviously the old dear knew this couple needed to get together--why else would she have caused the rightful ownership of her house to be in question? Ms. Thomason has done an outstanding job with Meg and Wade, making the reader fall in love with them from the outset. I also especially liked the subplot about Meg's career as a professional auctioneer. A fun read from beginning to end!
