The {Re} Model Marriage by: Maria Hoagland

From the outside, Kirk and Jamie appear to have a beautiful home and the perfect marriage. Inside, the aging Craftsman is falling apart, their marriage is crumbling from neglect, and Jamie Royce wants out! Kirk, on the other hand, isn’t ready to give up on either the house or their relationship.

With their divorce scheduled for the day after their daughter’s high school graduation, Jamie and Kirk have to fix the home’s problems to lift their selling price out of the basement. Working to renovate the home together, they discover secrets—in the home, in their marriage, and in the fertility clinic that helped give them their daughter—and find themselves questioning what true love really is.

I loved this book. I could relate to it on so many levels. So many people say that remodeling or building a house will cause you to divorce because it is so stressful, but just like Jamie and Kirk in the book, it was like therapy for us. We loved being able to work together and play off either others strengths and to build our dream house together. I love when an author tackles real life stuff that others don't want to approach. Life is hard, marriage is even harder it is refreshing to read a not so fairy like tale once in a while. Maria really hit it out of the park with this one. I absolutely loved it! It is a must read for sure! 

NOTE: I received an ARC copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
