Thirty-something Gretchen Hanover is stuck. Seeking solace from a broken heart, she traded her wedding plans for home improvement shows and ice cream—but she knows she can’t live on Ben and Jerry’s forever. She also knows that her enthusiastic Lab puppy has outgrown her tiny apartment.

The perfect patch for Gretchen’s dilapidated plans? She’ll become a first-time house-flipper. As ideas go, it’s daring and genius. She’ll take out a short-term loan, buy a fixer-upper, renovate it, resell it, and use the profit for an adorable house of her own. What could be easier?

But Gretchen’s plans to flip quickly flop when the house turns out to be in worse shape than she expected. She is relying on her retired contractor-father, but he wants to draw in his carpenter friend Noah Campbell. And although Noah is handy with tools, Gretchen isn’t so sure about the baggage he brings with him. Will she be able to loosen her grip on the tools when it seems Noah may be her only help?

A whimsical look at color swatches, mismatched curtain rods, and the building of relationships,A Mile in My Flip-Flops reminds us that it takes faith to renovate the heart, as well as the home.

Extremely religious! Nothing on the book indicates how much God-this, God-that there is in this underwhelming chick lit, so if that's not your bag, avoid this title.

Otherwise, I found the heroine dumb to the point of exhaustion and gave up on this book after a few dozen pages.

A fun read, her frank honesty is humorous at several points during the book. The author makes some good points about people who have been divorced and come with more "baggage", God's grace is bigger than ours, and if we trust Him, he can still bless us.
Loved it !
