The delightful New York Times bestselling author returns with a hilarious novel about one womans quest to redo an old house . . . and her life. After her boss in a high-powered Washington public relations firm is caught in a political scandal, fledgling lobbyist Dempsey Jo Killebrew is left almost broke, unemployed, and homeless. Out of options, she reluctantly accepts her fathers offer to help refurbish Birdsong, the old family place he recently inherited in Guthrie, Georgia. All it will take, he tells her, is a little paint and some TLC to turn the fading Victorian mansion into a real-estate cash cow. But, oh, is Dempsey in for a surprise when she arrives in Guthrie. Bird Droppings would more aptly describe the moldering Pepto Bismol-pink dump with duct-taped windows and a driveway full of junk. Theres also a murderously grumpy old lady, one of Dempseys distant relations, who has claimed squatters rights and isnt moving out. Ever. Furthermore, everyone in Guthrie seems to know Dempseys business, from a smooth-talking real-estate agent to a cute lawyer who owns the local newspaper. It wouldnt be so bad if it werent for the pesky FBI agents who show up on Dempseys doorstep, hoping to pry information about her ex-boss from her. All Dempsey can do is roll up her sleeves and get to work. And before long, what started as a job of necessity somehow becomes a labor of love and, ultimately, a journey that takes her to a place she never expected-back home again.
