    After a relaxing night in Hanoi I caught an early morning flight to Bali, with a layover in Kuala Lampur. Gretchen's got some girl-power. She'll become a first-time house-flipper. Over the next couple of days we rented a motorbike and drove outside of the city. But Gretchen's plans to flip quickly flop when the house turns out to be in worse shape than she expected.

A mile in my flip-flops book

While it probably wouldn't have been amusing to Gretchen, reading about her adventures was enjoyable and a hoot at times. I myself have only watched a couple episodes of some of the shows, usually while I'm channel surfing.

What could be easier? Gretchen has ignored his handsome looks before. Gretchen's initial reaction to Noah is, while understandable, a bit put offish.

Integer elementum tempor libero sit amet iaculis. It stinks and there is trash everywhere left by renters. 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. This book got interesting about two thirds through the book.

The perfect patch for Gretchen's dilapidated plans? I liked Gretchen. She'll become a first-time house-flipper. Will she be able to loosen her grip on the tools when it seems Noah may be her only help?

Her best friend Holly is at work and her employer doesn't like for her to interrupted with personal calls. There is no one else for Gretchen to call for help with this latest crisis. Donec scelerisque, urna id tincidunt ultrices, nisi nisl lacinia mi, at pellentesque enim mi eu felis.

Unfortunately things don't go as smoothly as she had planned. Etiam pulvinar, mi et molestie vestibulum, neque tellus pulvinar massa, vel varius nulla tellus at tortor.

There are at least 50 bars and clubs blaring music, and begging you to come in for a free drink. Since I unfortunately left my Southeast Asia Lonely Planet on the plane, I can't tell you specifically where we went, but I'll do my best. She's also going to be a great mom since she and Kirsten have bonded nicely.

Off the plane we headed to an area called Kuta, AKA. After all, Kirsten's mother will stop at nothing to just drop her off at the house for Noah to keep track of, no matter how busy he is, and Gretchen finds out that she really does like having a young girl look up to her.

Gretchen Hanover, a 30ish, single who has just I continue to offer the disclaimer that I am not a fan of Chick-lit, that I need suspense and intrigue to really keep my attention, but once again, I have been proven wrong. Will she be able to loosen her grip on the tools when it seems Noah may be her only help?

Still, being a supportive father, he puts his condo up as collateral for the short-term loan so Gretchen can buy this house. The perfect patch for Gretchen's dilapidated plans? She didn't know the situation yet she was wrongly blaming him.

Best scene in story: My favorite scene was when the house was completed. Since the streets are so small usually there is only room for one car the traffic is horrible which leads to tons of beeping, motorbikes driving on the sidewalk, and cars blocking every turn.

Mistake number one, and one that cost a pretty penny. It was pretty much like reading an episode of one of the HGTV shows. When the house goes on the market, Noah purchases it and asks Gretchen to marry him and be a step-mom to young Kirsten.Jun 17,  · 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.

The fact that the title has flip-flops in it (my shoe of choice from March till October!) made me very interested in reading it. This was a really cute book. Even though it was predictable I was still drawn into the story.
