Laura McAuliff's last relationship ended badly... So badly her ex-boyfriend, a criminal lawyer gave her 50 grand to vanish, before his assassin-client made her disappear forever!
Hiding out in a tiny house behind a friend's barn in Maine, she upcycles furniture into one-of-a-kind treasures for profit. She spots some Mad Men furniture, but another flipper claims it at the same time. At an impasse, they reluctantly split the set.
Trace Dixon is more than he seems. He's an ex-military bad-ass, and when he learns why she's hiding he's determined to protect her. He wants her to testify and be free to recycle her life.

Opening line of this book is funny. I mean, I get to smile AND learn a new term! Laura classifies herself as a “junker”, where she finds other people’s trash (and I use the term in the nicest way) and gives it a new lease on life. And the second term I learned was “upcyle”, the very definition of turning trash to treasure, so to speak. Laura’s crazy, crazy life is a story best told by the author – I’d only give spoilers and do a bad job at that! – all I can say is that she is in hiding and on the run. However, she is going to start dating again and is set up on a blind date with a dear friend’s nephew. Yeah. No. She manages to miss the date, meets another ‘upcyler’ on the way there, and that’s when it STARTS to get crazy. Tracey (‘please call him Trace’) Dixon practically arm wrestles her for some furniture pieces left on the side of the road. It’s a meet-cute but Trace is a bit of a…man-jerk, let’s say. He redeems himself, big time, and helps Laura navigate all the scary and crazy bits in her life. There is humor, passion, funny characters, and an interesting plot. Quick read, it moved fast, and made for an enjoyable evening.
