We Love to Entertain: A Novel

We rated this book:


Author Sarah Strohmeyer spins a breezy tale with cinematic scenes of Vermont in Autumn. A local couple has been chosen for an online show, To the Manor Build (TMB), along with two other couples elsewhere in the US. Each couple will be rehabbing a home in hopes of winning the prize – all expenses paid that were incurred during the rehab. The voting will be done online by TMB viewers, clearly a popularity contest.

Appearances are deceiving. Several of author Strohmeyer’s main characters at the Vermont rehab have dangerous secrets that are bound to cause serious damage for everyone. Kim, the town clerk, and mom of Erica, has access to the most volatile information. Erica is an assistant to Holly Simmons and Robert Barron, owners of the Vermont rehab project house. Holly and Robert are determined to win with their cabin turned eco-friendly elegant home.

Erica has a past mishap that haunts her. Kim can be over-protective even though her daughter is a 27-year-old adult. Holly has a thin veneer of sparkle hiding a truly different woman. Robert is a blogger who has difficulty measuring up to his father’s expectations.

The tale moves through dangerous turns. Enjoy the ride!
