Review: A Heart Restored by Elizabeth Maddrey

About the Book

"She renovates old houses. Can he restore her heart?
Deidre McIntyre didn’t exactly purchase the gorgeous old home in the Shenandoah Mountains on a whim. The building had seen better days, but she had the skills—and the time—to fix it up. And maybe it would provide the fresh start she was looking for.
Local handyman Jeremiah Crawford has a soft spot for Peacock Hill. When someone from out of town purchases it, he swings by to offer to help fix it up…and investigate the new owner’s plans for the property. The pixie-like Deidre isn’t at all what he expects, but he’s happy to hang around and enjoy the view.
When Deidre’s ex-boyfriend, a popular TV house flipper, shows up demanding a piece of the action, Jeremiah must decide if Deidre—and Peacock Hill—are worth fighting for. Falling in love wasn’t on the blueprints, but it might just be worth the change in plans."

My Thoughts

This is the first book in Elizabeth Maddrey's Peacock Hill series and I absolutely loved it! I read A Heart Realigned a few weeks ago (you can read my review here) and was raving about it to a friend who happened to have this book and I was thrilled when she loaned it to me. 

I love both of the main characters. I like that Deidre owns a handyman business and that Jeremiah isn't the least bit bothered by the fact that she owns a business, nor that she owns a business in the same line of work that he is in, which is male dominated. I loved Deidre's texting issues! They made me laugh out loud and reminded me of the time I was just starting to date my now husband and I sent him a text that I meant to say "I'm busy" but somehow when it got to him, it said "I'm busty." He still laughs about this. I liked Jeremiah's parents and the cast of other singles around Peacock Hill. 

I thought this story made great spiritual points which I liked in addition to just being a great story. If you like contemporary Christian fiction, I highly recommend this book! I am excited to read book two and for book four to be released!
