Quatrième de couverture

Shaken by a painful divorce, successful television writer Debra Barry leaves New York for the beautiful countryside of New Hampshire, where she hopes to find peace and solitude to mend her wounded heart. The old house she's bought, though, needs as much repairing as her own shattered emotions. To make it the home she's always wanted, she seeks the help of master cerpenter Graham Reid, a compellingly enigmatic man seemingly as hard as granite itself.

Hiding from his own bitter past, Graham reluctantly agrees to take the job, not suspecting that his own life is about to be altered as well. As the house begins to come together, he and Debra unexpectedly find themselves laying their own emotional groundwork. Drawn together by desire, can these two wounded lovers find the courage to tear down the walls between them and build on the promise of new love?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Old Delinsky material is misleading and not very good! 16 février 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I have read all of Barbara Delinsky's books. Of those books, there have been a number of rereleases. What is annoying is that alot of romance writers are doing this, and their material is not always as good as the current price of a paperback. If a book was released in 1983 the price of the paperback should be lower, and the cover of the paperback should also have an indication that this book has just been rereleased with the current content untouched. I'm from Ottawa, Canada and this paperback was very expensive. Alot of money for an outdated storyline and not much of a story to tell.

CARPENTER'S LADY is a disappointment from the second chapter on (the first chapter was promising). Obviously, the publisher wants to cash in on Delinsky's name. Reprinting this lackluster, outdated category romance (an old Sihouette Special Edition, originally published under the pseudonym Billie Douglass) isn't going to earn any new fans for the author though. Save your money.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Cashing in on a name... 2 février 2000
Par Suzanne B. Kelly - Publié sur Amazon.com

I agree with the other reviewers--save your money, before it is too late! I, too, saw it at the discount store and bought it before I read the fine print (i.e., when it was first published). It is a very weak story, filled with early-80's-type references and all the weaknesses of romances of that era. Do yourself a favor, watch these reprints carefully, and stick to Delinsky of the last ten years or so.

I heartily agree with the other reviewers. Picked this up on a whim at the grocery store and should have read the reviews first. I too overlooked the first page, which indicated the original release of 1983. It was a typical 1980s romance - forced advances with no build up.

When you move forward do you have to leave your past behind?

Debra Berry has said goodbye to her cheating husband, over bearing family and hello to a life that will be one she creates. Debra has so many possibilities of where to go from here, especially with the new house she just bought and the career she is so successful at. The house is a mess but she owns it and nothing from the past can spoil this dream.

She hires the best carpenter in town, Graham Reid who is less than anxious to take the job. He doesn't think he can get any work done while he spends the day thinking about her and trying to control he desire to possess her. But the money is too tempting and the opportunity to enticing to walk away from.

Graham and Debra try to control the passion between them but the longer they are together the worse it is to resist. Debra and Graham both have had past relationship failures and trouble with trust but it seems like they can build from the ground up not only the house but themselves.

While everyone is trying to manipulate the end result with Debra's life she knows that she could not write a better ending to a script than one that has Graham in her life forever.

Don't judge the book by the writing, take it for the year it was written and enjoy. When you read the earlier books by Barbara Delinsky you realize that contemporary romance was not her greatest forte shall we say. But this book was written in 1999 and does it fit the writing style for that time, place, and tone of contemporary romance - absolutely. I also felt this book was a precursor to Escape which came out this year as the story is different but the concept of being your own woman and finding your own place is important.
