Review of Home Matters by Julie N. Ford

Home Matters Updated

Home Matters by Julie N. Ford According to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous when she can't even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. Even though she has no design training and has never even held a power tool, she refuses to let that stop her. She's confident that her destiny is finally within reach. When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.

My Review

This is a promising new series out by six different authors. The books are each connected by a character or characters from the previous book appearing in the next book in the series. This is a super cute premise where the girl gets a job on a home decorating show and falls in love with someone else working on the show. I was super excited with the premise. I love this type of show and thought the idea sounded really fun.

This is a clean romance, which I am always on the hunt for, but can have a hard time finding. While the book was clean, and cleanly written, I would have liked to see more actual interaction between the main character and the love interest. In the end they just didn't spend enough time together to really make the story work the way I wanted it to. The book is a great path of self discovery and figuring out who you are and what is most important, but it was a little bit short on the romance aspect. However, the rest of series is very promising. You should definitely check it out if you like home decorating repair shows, and look for more books in this series.
