Today’s book review features
Sold on Love by Kathleen Fuller
She’s a high-fashion realtor; he’s a low-maintenance mechanic. What on earth could they have in common?
Dressed in designer labels and cruising around town in her red Mercedes, workaholic realtor Harper Wilson presents the picture of success in charming Maple Falls. But Harper’s carefully cultivated image is resting on a shaky foundation. With a sudden drought in sales, she’s starting to see her professional dreams—along with her posh lifestyle—slipping away.
Car trouble brings her to mechanic Rusty Jenkins, and their unlikely friendship is taken to the next level when the laid-back Rusty allows her to give him a makeover for a charity bachelor auction. Harper soon discovers that beneath the town mechanic’s wild beard and grease-stained clothing lies a true Southern gentleman—someone with a kind heart and dreams of his own. Their chemistry is undeniable, but as they get closer, past fears and relationships start to creep in, reminding them of just how much is at stake when carefully constructed facades fall apart.
Maybe their worlds aren’t so separate after all. And maybe covering up who you really are keeps you from discovering what was always meant to be.

Sold on Love by Kathleen Fuller is the third book in her Maple Falls contemporary romance series.
This series is delightfully fun, sweet, and romantic. After watching two of the four girl friends find their happily-ever-after, I couldn’t wait to read Harper’s story.
Rusty is an all-around sweet guy and I loved watching how he cared for Harper as her world crumbled around her. He was so sweet that I had a hard time reading when he was wounded and struggling at varying points in the story.
We also got to see Harper’s mom’s story. It’s not as easy of a read, but I liked how it filled in the struggles Harper faced. And, watching Harper’s story unfold made the ending very sweet indeed.
If you’re looking for a contemporary romance, definitely check out this one. I’m hoping there’ll be a book four in the series because I’m not ready to leave Maple Falls or Harper and her friends.
