"Securing the Handyman's Heart" by Katie Clark

About this book:

  “Local cupcake queen Kayla Dobbs is feeling the heat—just as her bakery is finally taking off, her retired parents start pressuring her to move to Florida. Determined to prove her success, she takes on extra work at the bakery and fibs a little about the depth of her love life. When her mother announces an upcoming visit to meet the lucky guy, Kayla makes a pact with her friends to get a proposal from George Marks, town handyman extraordinaire. The problem is, George seems totally indifferent.
  George Marks has enough on his plate with running his business, taking care of an ailing but feisty grandmother, and the possibility of a new business venture on the horizon. But when bumping into Kayla becomes a strangely routine thing, he’s surprised to realize it has also become the highlight of his days. As business spirals out of control and Granny takes a turn for the worse, he’s sure he made one too many commitments.
  With a dash of matchmaking granny and a pinch of secret cupcake recipe, Kayla and George find themselves in one messy kitchen. But will they find themselves in love?”

My personal Rating-
Talk about a sweet book—in more ways than one! This was a light, easy and fun read that I really enjoyed. Kayla & George both had their admiring characters, but also faults that made them realistic and easy to read about. I also liked like Granny and Maxwell. They were both so cute! ;) I so enjoyed this sweet contemporary and I think that cover is perfect for it! It looks like it guarantees a sweet romance story and author Katie Clark sure does give you one! I can’t wait to read the rest in the series as they come out. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
