Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For almost 40 years, I've owned a dog, so I've always been attracted to books with dogs in them. I couldn't resist including one in Her Handyman. 

FuFu's not just any dog, but a Chinese Crested canine. They're the breed that wins ugliest dog contests, but there's something about their imperfection that's cute!

EXPERIENCE THE DIVERSITY & VERSATILITY OF MORGAN MANDEL -

Check out Morgan Mandel's latest novella in the Deerview Series - HAILEY'S CHANCE: WILL BABY MAKE 3

Set in the same fictional small town of Deerview, Wisconsin, this novella is just as heartwarming as Morgan's previously released romance, CHRISTMAS CAROL. Here's what HAILEY'S CHANCE is about:

Bursting with anticipation, Hailey awaits the arrival of her first child. Then, one morning, the unthinkable happens, turning her joy to grief.

When her neighbor offers a startling suggestion, Hailey's torn. Should she take a chance? The offer is tempting, yet if something goes wrong, she'd be wide open for more heartbreak.

This standalone novella is a prequel to Christmas Carol. Both are set in the fictional small town of Deerview, Wisconsin.

ABOUT CHRISTMAS CAROL: This is Morgan Mandel's heartwarming story about a waitress named Christmas Carol, the town that cherishes her, and the man who can't forget her.

This is a refreshingly sweet and charming story about two people whose initial introduction would never have happened except for an overflowing toilet. Eccentric, talented and successful artist, Zoe has the overflowing toilet and calls handyman Jake of All Trades. And since there's no job too big or too small for handsome, regular guy, Jake, he's happy to comply.

Nothing might have come of this brief assignment, except that he trips on the wet bathroom floor, and concussed and bleeding he must stay on the floor, head on Zoe's lap until the EMT's arrive.

The result is that two completely different people from completely different lifestyles have a chance get to know and actually like each other. So begins the story of Jake and Zoe.

I was immediately rooting for them, yet appreciating how hard it was for them to accept their growing feelings for each other. After all, Jake had a fiancé and Zoe had all sorts of troubles, family secrets and phobias.

Yes, in the end, guy gets girl, but you will love the journey of these two unlikely lovers.

a very good read for an afternoon by the pool--good writing, believable & enjoyable characters. A great light read.
& the clash of social classes makes it a little deeper than that...an artist hires a handyman to work on her flooded space & they end up falling in love, but the social barriers between them threaten to tear them apart.

Her Handyman, by Morgan Mandel, does not fail to delight readers who have read previous books of Mandel's. A handsome man engaged to his lifelong friend works at helping others solve their problems physically, and sometimes he is able to help improve a person's outlook on life as well. After all, having things fixed by an expert 'Jack of All Trades' would improve anyone's outlook. But when Zoe calls for help, Jake responds and encounters someone like no one he has ever encountered before, and suddenly his lifelong expectation of living life contentedly in a stable marriage to Angelina comes into question. And Zoe, someone who has been hurt by loss and perceived deception, has a lonely existence that Jake wants to help her escape. Angelina, surrounded by a loving, ever-present family, begins to suspect that Jake's work as Zoe's handyman may involve more than just hammers and wrenches. Morgan Mandel once again keeps the reader guessing who will bring Jake forward toward his ultimate goal of helping people as a psychologist until the closing chapter. This is a 5 star romance!

Jack-of-all-trades Jake and zany and quirky artist Zoe couldn't be more different. After Jake comes to Zoe's rescue one night, neither can stop thinking about the other. Their instant connection forms the bonds of friendship, but soon their attachment grows deeper.

Morgan Mandel does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. Jake and Zoe aren't perfect, and life isn't always easy for them. Readers will relate to the real-life issues they need to overcome before finding their happily ever after. If you're looking for a sweet and charming story to read in an afternoon, this is the book for you.

In Her Handyman, Morgan Mandel combines a crazy canine, a handyman and a quirky artist and comes up with a story that lets on more than it realizes.
Sandra O'Toole, aka Zoe Carmichael the famous artist, calls Jake, a handyman, to come and fix her toilet. After beginning to fix the leak, her dog startles him and he falls and hits his head on the base of the toilet. While he is out cold, Zoe finds herself falling for this ordinary guy. Maybe it's his body, maybe it's that she is lonely, maybe it's just crazy.
Waiting for the ambulance to arrive, Zoe and Jake begin to talk and find out about each other. She lets on she is the daughter of a famous artist and that she never wants to talk to her father again. He shares that he is engaged to a beautiful lady and is working hard to pay for the wedding. And they share a feeling, although neither says anything out loud.
Over the next few months Jake gets better, but Zoe can't get him out of her mind so she calls every so often just to talk. He should feel guilty, but doesn't. They both want the same thing, they just don't know how much.
After years of hiding from the public, and her father, Jake allows Zoe the opportunity to gain her freedom back.
Not one to spoil a story, I will stop there. However I will let you know that this story, while a cute and easy read, also brings something else to the forefront--you don't always know the truth unless you experience it yourself.
This book conveys the message that being yourself, being honest and not rushing to judgments about people will allow you the happiness you deserve. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick and enjoyable read.
