Nothing Serious by Barbara Morgenroth
Genre: Sweet Romance
Paige, a city girl who has a hard time keeping a conventional job and makes "friends" online only, reaches her tipping point when an online beau lies to her. Ditching her entire life, computer included, she rents the only place she can afford, a fifties bungalow in a New York lakeside resort. Funneling her creative energies into converting old tools and mechanical parts into fountains and cutsey tourist pieces, she opens a shop in town, and instantly gets into trouble. Jonathan Macklin, who owns the shop next to Paige's, lends her his ladder, his tools, his computer, and finally, retracting the loan status, his heart.
Living a life she never imagined, Paige discovers lost art worth millions, that her online beau is a crook, that she can sell her fountains, make friends in person, dress as a flapper, retrieve her passion for painting in oils, and along the way, drive reserved, unflappable Jonathan more than a little crazy. Oh, and she gets arrested for internet espionage.
Funny, sassy, and with plot twists not found in most romances, Nothing Serious is a fun, fast read with witty dialogue, off- beat characters, and more story than you expect.
