"Be My Neat-Heart" by Judy Baer

About this book:

  “Men come and go, but clutter is forever…
   I’ve been told the reason I’m still single at twenty-nine is because there’ll never be a man tidy enough for me. I’m a professional organizer, so everything in my world is in perfect order. Well…everything except my love life.
   But I think I’ve met my match in Jared Hamilton, who recently hired me to cure his sister’s “clutter issues.” He’s an even bigger neatnik than I am, but he also needs to control everyone around him. I’m starting to realize that sometimes love can be a messy business!”

My personal Rating-
Since I’ve enjoyed “Million Dollar Dilemma” and “Norah’s Ark” so much by this author, I’ve been wanting to read her other books for years now. Finally getting to it and starting with “Be My Neat-Heart”. While I wasn’t an overall big fan of the main guy, Sammi was so fun! I really enjoyed all the faith parts and as an organizer, the parts of Sammi’s job. There was also a fun hidden Easter egg of Norah’s Ark being mentioned twice!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
