Turnaround Farm is a kindle unlimited title available at

If up and coming realtor Holly Grant can buy Turnaround Farm for her client, her business will boom. Who says you have to have a man in your life to complete you? She’s fine as she is thank you very much. Her first problem is that Jeb Wakefield doesn’t want to sell his farm, and her second problem is Jeb’s grandson Dan, the finest looking man Holly’s ever seen. 

Excerpt: Chapter One
Last week
Hiring help would have greatly simplified their lives,but they couldn’t afford to pay a salary. Gradually though, they had found a few owners willing to trust them with their horses, but he knew the Wakefield name still had a nasty ring to it when horse people got together to talk.

His eyes swept around the beat up kitchen and family room. He remembered a time when everything was shiny and beautiful, but it didn’t look that way now. The house had twelve rooms, and because of its age, it needed a lot of expensive repairs and maintenance, but they had neither time nor money to spend. In fact, they only heated the kitchen and family room. Consequently, the house became more dilapidated with each passing season. If they didn’t find the money to fix the roof soon, the ceilings upstairs would fall down on them as they slept.

Oh, yes it bothered him to watch the house deteriorate, but worry about the house paled in comparison to his worry about Dan. Dan labored unceasingly to repair the damage done by his father, but he didn’t have much to show for his efforts.

This Week: We begin where we left off last week.

I could feel Jeb's frustration with the big picture when he criticized something so insignificant. Good job.

It's so rude and at the dinner. I'd like to smack him right in the kisser.

Interesting Jeb cares what he's wearing. Seems like an off note, which makes me all the more curious...very effective excerpt!

This is going to be an awkward dinner...

The horses might feel insulted by his shabby apparel and refuse to lay eggs . . . or something like that.
