Whether it's repairing a home or taking care of clients' other needs, Twin Cities handyman Sam Haney is in demand from his mostly female clientele. Despite Sam's lothario reputation, love isn't part of his portfolio. He's built a lot of walls in his time, but the one that's surrounded his heart ever since the death of his parents is his most solid yet. Haley Cooper has had enough heartache for a lifetime. Her high school sweetheart up and moved to Indonesia-alone-just two weeks before their wedding. Her mother thinks it's time for Haley to move on and contracts Sam to work on Haley's wreck of a house-and anything else, if he's got the notion. Sparks fly and passion ignites. But Haley isn't into Sam's love-'em-and-leave-'em act. She wants something more. Fixing a house is one thing, but for this handyman, building a relationship will need a whole different set of skills.

"This contemporary romance set in Minnesota is interpreted warmly with refined nuances by Teri Clark Linden. Her vocal range brings the multigenerational families to life with defined individuality and enthusiasm. Trudy is worried about her daughter, Haley. She hires Sam Haney, who has a reputation for being more than handy with tools, to boost Haley's confidence and fix her house. When the two realize Trudy's plan, Sam wants to prove he's a craftsman and can keep things professional. When friendship turns to love, Sam's fears nearly break what they've built together. Linden reveals the characters' personalities clearly and intelligently. Listeners will be charmed by the first story in the Haney series. S.H. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
