WHY DO "DO-IT-YOURSELF"
Single mom Anne Edmond can handle and hand-make just about anything. From table settings to party favors, floral arrangements to nursery decor, there is no project her creativity and a glue gun can't tackle. But dating? That's a whole 'nother story. Case in point: Mike Everett. He's a gorgeous mechanic and known car-whisperer, a man who can work with auto parts like nobody's business. And he has thrown a monkey wrench into Anne's carefully-crafted life
WHEN YOU CAN DO IT "TOGETHER"?
One look at Anne is enough for Mike to know that she's no fixer-upper. She's perfect just the way she is and the chemistry between them works like a charm. Mike's always been a no-strings kind of guy, but Anne's impressive self-reliance and gorgeous exterior gives him pause. This time, a fast joyride just doesn't seem like enough. But first he has to convince Anne that he means to take her all the way "

Delightfully playful, Michaels’s second contemporary (after Blame It on the Mistletoe) marks her as one to watch. Mechanic Mike Everett drops his niece off at six-year-old Claire’s birthday party and is a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of aqua and raspberry decorations created by Claire’s mother, talented designer and crafter Anne Edmond. Despite feeling out of place in Anne’s world, he can’t resist his attraction to her and begins following her lifestyle blog, My Perfect Little Life, just to learn more about her. Mike can’t understand why Anne rarely mentions the online lifestyle business that supports her and Claire, but her success is what drove her ex-husband away. Mike decides that he’ll convince Anne that they belong together, and he devotes his energy to winning her and Claire’s affection. Michaels writes warm, believable characters, and readers will look forward to discovering how Anne’s blogging partners, Callie (a baker) and Lindsey (who repurposes antiques), find their own romances as the series continues.
