Home Matters (Ripple Effects series)


The Ripple Effect Romance Series 

Enjoy this exciting new series of clean novellas by six critically-acclaimed authors.

“Like a pebble tossed into calm water, a simple act can ripple outward and have a far-reaching effect on those we meet, perhaps setting a life on a different course—one filled with excitement, adventure, and sometimes even love.”

Book Description: According to her mother, Olivia Pembroke was born to be a star. But how is she supposed to be famous when she can’t even get a decent acting gig? Her lucky break comes when she lands an audition for a wildly popular home improvement show. Even though she has no design training and has never held a power tool, she refuses to let that stop her. She’s confident that her destiny is finally within reach.

When her affections are torn between her heartthrob co-host and the irritating, yet somehow endearing lead contractor, does she continue to reach for the stars? Or does she design a new happily ever after? One that leads not to the fading lights of fame and fortune, but to a love that will burn forever.

My review of Home Matters, the first in the Ripple Effects series by Julie N Ford.  

Home Matters is a novella in the Ripple Effect series.  The cover is a scene straight from the book. I love it when they get that right.   Olivia is a struggling actress that gets a chance at being the co-host of a home improvement show Home Matters.  She realizes her lack of interior design experience is not a problem since the show is not as reality as she once thought.   Her first encounter with Pete starts a little rocky and sets the tone for their relationship.  The author was able to surprise me with the newspaper article / photo.  I didn’t see that coming.

After reading the description for the next book I am excited about the “Ripple Effect” series and how they have planned them out.   Home Matters had a good ending and a great lead into the next  Ripple Effect story.

I think this will be an interesting series.  I am looking forward to it.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review
