When Lucy Rawlinson moves into the fixer-upper next door to her ex-husband, Nick, she has more than renovations on her mind. Desperate to win back his love, she begins a campaign to reignite the passion they once shared.

Nick is haunted by the same bitter-sweet memories of their marriage and the baby they lost, but he is determined to never forgive his ex-wife’s infidelity. All Nick wants to do is move on and forget, a task that now seems beyond impossible with Lucy and her noisy little dog living right next door.

Is there a way back? Can Lucy convince Nick that everything they once had is worth fighting for?

If this short story proves anything it’s that everything is better the second time around.

Nick can’t let go of his anger towards his ex-wife Lucy, but Lucy will not take no for an answer. Buying a house that is a bit of a ‘fixer-upper’ that just happens to be right next door to Nick proves that – she needs him to listen to her. Little did she know that even though she wanted Nick to talk to her and listen to what she has to stay, she might get a little bit more then what she bargained for.

Lucy is a very lovable character who easily got empathy from me. Everything she and Nick have been though in the past nearly broke my heart. She bought the house next door to be closer to Nick and try and tell him her side of the story but when Lucy realises that Nick may be ready to move on she uses the house renovations to figure out what she’s going to do with her life next.

In such a small amount of time Ms Douglas has created a very beautiful love story that took no time at all to get me hooked onto Nick and Lucy’s love/hate relationship.

With this deep and emotional read with just the right amount of humour thrown in, this short story quickly became an excellent and very entertaining read. I recommend it.
