The Happy Camper
Home is the place to heal, right? At least, that's what Dillon Michaels is hoping as she leaves her disappointing career and nonstarter love life behind to help her grieving and aging grandfather on his small Oregon farm. The only problem? Her eccentric mother beat her there and has taken over Dillon's old room. After a few nights sleeping on a sagging sofa, Dillon is ready to give up, until she receives an unlikely gift--her grandfather's run-down vintage camp trailer, which she quickly resolves to restore with the help of Jordan Atwood, the handsome owner of the local hardware store.
But just when things are finally beginning to run smoothly, Dillon's noncommittal ex-boyfriend shows up with roses . . . and a ring.
Full of quirky characters, family drama, and sweet romance, The Happy Camper will have you scouring Craigslist for your own diamond-in-the-rough camper to restore and haunting your local hardware store for a handy guy to help your dreams come true.
My thoughts: Melody Carlson's books are usually like a delightful RomCom or Chick Flick for me to enjoy, with this book had elements of. I love how Dillon decides that she is done feeling stuck in her life when circumstances present the chance for a change. I loved the idea of remodeling an old camper and enjoyed her journey of self discovery. That said, I also got a little fed up with her and how she lets people treat her.
Overall, though, a lighthearted read that is enjoyable to pick up!
I received this book from Revell. This is my honest review.
