I thought it was about time you got the chance to see Merri’s face instead of the back of her head, so I had her turn around for the cover shoot. Isn’t she pretty? Let me know what you think in the comment section below.
There’s no sense trying to keep the plot a secret. You’ll be able to tell just looking at the cover, that More than Meets the Eye has a happily ever after ending for Merri and Brett.
You should PRE-ORDER it now so you’ll be one of the first to find out how it all turns out.
Dream House or Money Pit?
But before Merri and Brett can ride off into the sunset, they have to get Merri’s “Dream House” remodeled in time so they can be married there. Hideous wallpaper that stubbornly refuses to be removed, a bathtub blocking the door to the bathroom, asbestos-laden floor tiles, a sump pump that may or may not work, and an eat-and-run basement turtle are just some of the issues Merri faces with her money-pit house.
But don’t worry. Brett has temporarily traded in his brainy physics professor in a well-cut suit persona for the brawny handyman in frayed sweatshirts and carpenter pants one. And he shows up ready to work, even though Merri insists that for crying out loud it was enough that he gave her a house for Christmas—he doesn’t have to help her remodel it too.
“People Before Projects”
The clock is ticking, but they keep getting requests for help, and since Merri has a new policy she calls People Before Projects there’s nothing to do but stop work on their house and go lend a helping hand.
One ” P.B.P.” is Mrs. Josephine Sayers, a sweet old lady who needs someone to “grandma-sit” her or she’ll have to go to the nursing home instead of continuing to live in her beloved Roseberry. In case you didn’t know, a Roseberry is one of the most popular models of Sears catalog houses built in 1918. And Josephine’s Roseberry is part of a 156-house collection in Carlinville, Illinois. (More about that later.) Merri discovers that there’s more than meets the eye in Josephine’s sweet little house. But of course I’m not going to say what that is, now am I?
Will God answer Merri and Brett’s prayer to get their Dream House finished in time for the wedding? Of course, God always answers prayer. But how he does makes the plot thicken.
