Spotlight + #Giveaway: Season of Hope by Alexa Verde

10 Aug

Purchase a copy:

Kelly Young wants to heal after losing her husband and to raise her little girl the best she can in her hometown. But her new neighbor, former wide receiver Brandon Carmichael, seems to intend to demolish his fixer-upper and her hopes for peace and quiet. When he helps her to repair her home, keeps her flower shop business afloat, and makes her hope and love again, could it be that Brandon is exactly what she needs?

After a forced retirement, Brandon Carmichael is angry and lost, one step away from the familiar path of self-destruction. Moving to a small town at his friend’s suggestion, Brandon surprises himself by getting involved in its community and starting to fall for his pretty neighbor, single mom Kelly Young. But when his past collides with his present, can he forgive, love, and live fully again?

    I completely redid a mobile home that we purchased. Primed and painted 5 rooms and 2 baths and my husband and I built the porch and deck.

    I use to do little projects but no more. Now I just watch remodel and do-it-yourself programs on tv. I am a follower.

    I don’t think I would ever buy a house that was a total fixer upper. Unless I had lots and time and money, then it might be fun!
    My husband is pretty handy, me not do much!

    I follow the blog via email

      Hello Patty! You’re so right. Fixer uppers can be fun, but only if you have a lot of time and money. Thank you very much for commenting!

    Alas, I am a widow and older lady of 74 years, so there will be no remodeling my home where I have always lived, I never moved anywhere else! It’s old like me but I’m happy here and I love reading!

    • Alexa Verde August 15, 2017 at 1:10 pm #

      Thank you very much for commenting! I’m sorry about your loss. And I believe it’s the “happy” part that counts. I appreciate you stopping by!

    When I was young, my husband and I did’ the fix it and flip it’ thing before it was a thing. We bought a no-cost assumption in 1978 on an $80k home. We did a little fixing and flipped it into a $105k 1acre mini farm. From that we fixed up and flipped to a $125K 5 acre horse farm. We did a lot of fixing and flipped that to a 72 acre ranch for $192K. That was our dream home. We raised our kids and enjoyed life to the max. All of the fixing up was to our dreams, not as a step to anything. We sold it for $750K, retired to a smaller 2.5 acre gentleman’s estate, bought with cash and had tons of money left for our retirement and to send the kids to college. It sounds so simple, but it was hard work and no vacations for 30 years.

      Hello, Janet Graham! What you did is so impressive! Very few people can do that, I think. I’m glad you were so successful and got to enjoy your dream home, raise your kids there, and enjoy life. I loved reading your story. Thank you very much for commenting!

    I’m sure this is not what you’re after, but I fix up old Cabbage Patch Kids. They deserve to be presentable and lovable. They get a bath and hairdo, new or clean clothes, and they look like different Kids. Then I find different charity organizations (like for refugees) to give them to.

      Hello, Louise! Great to see you here. It’s very nice of you to fix up old Cabbage Patch Kids and give them to charity organizations! You’re a very kind lady.
