Mina wants nothing as much as she wants to convert the house her ancestors built there, into a bed and breakfast inn.
Home repair projects always seem to have a way of escalating. Doing a renovation on a very old home that has not been maintained makes it even worse.
As Mina starts to work on restoring her ancestral home, her problems begin to mount…First, the workmen found raccoons living in the chimney, then the basement flooded following the first rain. Now they are finding mold in the walls, the bathrooms are not up to code, and the well is no longer up to code! And the list goes on.
When an archeologist must be called in because of something found during the digging of the new well, all Mina sees is more $$$, and more delays! She hoped to have the inn open for business by next spring, now she is wondering if it will ever happen!
After Mina is laid off from her job at the university, she must scramble for another job, which only seems to add another delay to her dream.
Mina finds that that world renowned archeologist sent to investigate the find in her yard, is the same boy she had loved in high school, Noah Nolan. Can she find a way to work with him? Will he be able to work with her? After all, Mina was the girl he had loved in high school, who then suddenly turned very cold. Will there be enough money to complete the project and what about furniture for her inn?
The main characters are well developed, even the antagonist, Phoebe who hates Mina. One can almost see the faces of these characters, even their emotions are visible!
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from Reading Deals so I could give an honest review
“It's shocking, I know. A Winslow without money. It's like a Kardashian without a TV camera.”
“He'd seen the sunrise over Jerusalem, touched the walls of the Hagia Sophia, and smelled the air inside the Sistine Chapel, but none of it compared to Mina in that moment of trust and freedom. She broke his heart.”
“He'd had his lifetime full of being expendable to people, and just once, he wanted someone to want him to stay.”
“Her heart contracted. That he worried so made her feel cherished. Loved. The fear vanished like the stars at dawn.”
This review could be complete with once sentence. Beautiful Ruin was beautifully written. I could stop right there but I have a great need and desire to expound and tell you more – this marvelous book wrecked me. In addition to the sweet and sensual love story – that was not supposed to happen, the plot is embedded with long-repressed secrets and the personal pain and traumas for both characters, and I desperately wanted to know what they were. It was peeling the onion as this crafty writer played it close to the vest. I was fascinated, frustrated, transfixed, exasperated, enthralled, and on edge. The storyline was intriguing, sensual, heart rendering, and highly addictive. The emotive writing stung my eyes, burned my throat, and tightened my chest. I had to stop reading to sob more than once. The ending was satisfying and all I hoped for. I adored this book and want to read everything this author ever writes, so no surprise - I have her second book already loaded.
