Gretchen Hanover has been leading a crappy life, since her fiancee Colin called off the wedding when he dumped her for his ex. She sits at home all day and watches HGTV and eats ice cream. Not good! But then she decides she wants to be like the people on t.v. and remake a house. So she finds this little house that's down in the dumps and decides to remodel it. She has to get out a loan and then it's time to get to work. But alot of obstacles get in the way, including her dad having a heart attack, more problems with the house, keeping her distance with Noah, whose a carpenter helping with the house. But in the end, her house gets flipped, not flopped. I loved this book! It was actually a book about someone like 32 or something, not teenager haha. But Melody Carlson is awesome. And I really liked going through remaking a crap house into a nice one.
