To build a future, sometimes you have to tear down the past....
Chicago event planner Libby Hamilton can turn any bland setting into a dramatic venue—but when she abruptly loses her job, and her fair-weather boyfriend moves to another state, Libby suddenly finds herself back in the tiny town she grew up in. Worse than that, her father wants help transforming an old schoolhouse into a vintage ice cream parlor and Libby must trade in her power suits for power tools.
Widowed restoration specialist Tom Murphy can rebuild just about anything—except the shattered relationship he shares with his teenaged daughter. Hired by Libby’s father, Tom isn’t interested in sharing the details of his personal life with beautiful, spunky Libby. He just wants to get the job done. But she is tenacious—and sexy—and it doesn’t take long before she breaks down his walls, builds up his hope, and gets a hold on his heart that won’t let go.

I like the story, but I must say the voice of the narrator is annoying. I have listened to hundreds of. Audio books and must say this is the first time I almost stopped listening due to the voiced the person.
Fun comedy romance for this summer!
I really enjoyed the story of Libby and Tom. Both with previous heart breaks that need to be healed. Loved Libby's quirky family. This is a light fun filled romance, with plenty of laugh out moments. Keep them coming Tracy.
