Book Description

Nerdy Emma Grace Woodhouse has struggled with her weight and her mother’s meddling for years. When she is assigned to manage her father’s corporation’s latest acquisition in Manhattan, she is ecstatic that she will finally have a chance to prove herself. Unfortunately, Grace’s joy takes a sudden downward spiral when she discovers that the assignment is the overhaul of a retirement home in Manhattan…Manhattan, Georgia, of all places.

Grace resigns herself to tackling the overwhelming task of turning the retirement home into a welcoming and safe place for its elderly residents...a task made even more difficult by the destructive presence of a vindictive pair of former workers. Armed with a newfound sense of God's grace, the friendship of a pair of feisty elderly residents, and a blossoming relationship with handsome general contractor, Jackson Ellis, Grace discovers that God's plans for her life are not necessarily the ones she would have imagined…they are so much more amazing!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good for a self published book May 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am usually wary of self published books.

As a book-blogger I usually write reviews for traditionally published books. This week I had a little extra time and this book, which was being offered for free at the time, looked like just the kind of book I was in the mood for. That being said, I wasn't expecting such a delightful read.

There is a great plot & structure, a bunch of quirky characters and has been edited quite well for a self-pub. With a little polishing and some smoothing out of the initial encounter between the protagonists this book could have jumped to a 5 star.

I believe the author has the potential develop into an excellent author. I would love to see what she could do with a publishing house behind her.

To my knowledge I have no connection to this author. I have not been asked to review this book.

It was a fun, enjoyable read and I recommend that you give it a chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun read January 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Living in Atlanta, I enjoyed the setting of the story which was the North Georgia mountains. The story was sweet and romantic with a nice dose of humor brought on by the residents of the retirement community. I would recommend this book for a fun afternoon with a book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grace is aptly named! August 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Such fun! I could identify with Gracie! This book takes several surprising turns and I like that. It is a sweet story with romance, first career job in a new location, learning to deal with job expectations, being the owner's daughter, etc. and all in all, Gracie exhibits grace.

I have read 3 Heather Hunt books and enjoyed each one. The faith of the characters is an integral part of their lives but they are believable and likeable folk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! June 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book and I loved the characters within it! A perfect blend of sweet and sassy in a clean romantic comedy that read like a friday night movie with your girl friends. Well thought out, well edited, and a perfect blend of fun and serious as Gracie grows into herself and God's calling on her life. I will defintely be looking for more from this author!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Manhattan: A Little apple in the big south May 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Grace Woodhouse was ecstatic when she finds out she is going to be working in Manhattan. Until her father tells her it Manhattan, Georgia... and it's managing a retirement home. Her job is to fix the place up, and to make it safe environment for all the residents. Grace doesn't make the greatest first impression, and by the end of the day has already been seen by a doctor, and is required to use a cane (talk about a bad day).But the day is not a total loss, she also meets an overly sexy Contractor named Jack.

As the story progresses so does Grace, she develops lasting friends, enters into a relationship with Jack, and really discovers herself and what she wants out of life.

"Aging with Gracie" is such a fun, sweet, romantic comedy.
Pros: great characters and not just the hero and heroine, but the supporting cast as well. Decent length, 181 pages (What I call a book), and a solid plot.
Cons: Couple of minor errors, nothing drastic.

I got this book during one of the free promotional days, but I would have easily paid the regular price.
