Construction Beauty Queen

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): She's on the job…and out of his league.

Chicago socialite Veronica Jamison is determined to shake off her sheltered lifestyle and overbearing parents. She heads to her grandfather’s small town of Kortville, ready to roll up her sleeves and work for the family construction business. She’ll prove her worth, even if it means answering to the company’s ruggedly handsome co-owner, Matt.

Matt Shaw just wants to run his business, spend time with the niece he’s raising on his own, and give back to the townspeople who have stood by him. Managing a spoiled-rotten princess he knows he’ll never be good enough for? Not part of his plan. But as he gets to know Veronica, he learns there’s more to her than her beautiful looks and designer clothes. She’s got a heart as rich as her background. 

With the quirky townspeople rallying against Veronica inheriting her grandfather’s business, it’s up to Matt to try to drive her out of town. But how can he, when instead she’s driving her way into his heart?

One (or more) Sentence Summary: Veronica is a perfect chick lit type of lady!  She could have easily stayed in Chicago in her pampered life, but she had something to prove!  Given I have never been a socialite, but would love to give it a try (!!!), I don't think I would have taken on the challenge.  I love how she doesn't go running back home, even though she has plenty of opportunity and reasons to do just that!

Favorite Character(s):  This is a toss up between Veronica and Matt.  Let's just say I was cheering for both of them.

Setting:  Small town where everyone knows your business.

Fast read/slow read:  Quick read!

Cover:  It works.  I would have loved to have seen Veronica in front of her tailor too!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would, Construction Beauty Queen provided an escape and was a quick read.

Sara Daniel writes what she loves--irresistible romance, captivating drama, and quirky characters. She writes to entertain and to give people hope and a belief that everything can and will turn out happily ever after.

On the personal side, she's a frazzled maid, chef, chauffeur, tutor, and personal assistant. She was once a landlord of two uninvited squirrels. She's crazy about country music and the drama of NASCAR. And she has her own happily-ever-after romance with her hero husband.
