If you could sum up The Fixer Upper in three words, what would they be?
Feelgood Southern Romance
Would you recommend The Fixer Upper to your friends? Why or why not?
I'd recommend this to those who want a traditional romance with a touch of Southern comfort (not the drink) and hospitality. There is a satisfying story-line of corrupt politicians and lobbyists being chased by the FBI as well as predictable but sweet themes of a woman finding courage, romance and a sense of self and belonging. I guess this is a 'New Southern' book, a little nostalgic but also gently aware of prejudices it would like to leave behind. The story is like comfort food, full of the manners, houses, friendships and eccentricities of a small Georgia community with one foot in the past and one pointing towards the future.
What does Isabel Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Isabel Keating paces the narration well & creates good voices and accents for the characters.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Sometimes our future is where we least expect.
Captivating descriptive story with exquisite detail and description. Have enjoyed every second of it. More, more, more!
Come on fellow readers! These books aren't read because they are literary masterpieces! They are just an enjoyable escape. This is my first MK Andrews book. If the others are equal to this I will defintely try another. I enjoyed the characters and the narrator did a great job. I liked that the author didn't over kill the plot. Yes, it was very predictable. Personally, I didn't care. I love chick lit! It's light and funny... a retreat from daily life.

Any additional comments?
This was a great book. At first I thought I wouldn't like it but unlike other books in this genre, it had several complex storylines and brilliant characters. The narrator did an amazing job, particularly with all the Southern accents. I really enjoyed listening to this book.
