Lauren Smith has it all – she drives a Mercedes, wears a three-carat diamond ring, and is about to marry the most powerful man in New York. (I’m talking Trump powerful, not Mr. Big powerful). But all of that starts to change after she inherits her grandmother’s old farmhouse in Vermont.

Enter: the plumber. This is where it starts to sound a bit like a bad porn plot, but stay with me.

Caleb Cochran is the local plumber near her grandmother’s house and answers Lauren’s call when she discovers the house has no hot water. Forget her engagement, this is true-love at first site.

The only downside to this novel is that it leans much more toward romance than chick lit, even though it has a lot of the staple elements of a great chick lit novel. For me, the plot moved too quickly to be truly believable, but maybe that’s not the point. It’s more of a sweet treat than a five-cousre meal.

This novel is a quick read with a cute story. Pair it with the dessert-friendly Hogue Cellars Late Harvest White Riesling. The oozing flavors of sugary apricot and spicy citrus match the flourish of love, lust … and sex.
