Selected as a qsizzling beach readq by the New York Daily News, Richard Murphy's debut novel explains what it really means to be a full-service contractor. Henry Sullivan has spent seventeen years renovating houses for wealthy women, and he owes his success to a few simple rules: don't take on too many jobs at once-and don't sleep with clients. Over the course of one complicated summer, Henry breaks those rules when he works on the houses of two very different women who used to be friends. Henry falls for both women, and finds himself erecting an emotional house of cards as he attempts to complete their jobs while piecing together the mysterious events that demolished the women's friendship.The first thing a woman needs to know about renovating a house or apartment is simple: do not, under any circumstance, sleep with your contractor, ... on this subject at Home Depotaeven though it should be there, in its own department, right between electrical and plumbing, ... their employees with codes- of-conduct seminars and grounds-for-dismissal manuals designed to encourage abstinence.
