Check out this new book at the library – “The Fixer Upper” by Mary Kay Andrews. After her boss at a Washington PR firm is caught in a political scandal, fledgling lobbyist Dempsey Jo Killibrew is left broke, unemployed and homeless. She reluctantly accepts her father’s offer to help refurbish Birdsong, the old family place that he recently inherited in Guthrie, Georgia, but it’s going to take more than a little paint and TLC to turn the fading Victorian mansion into a real-estate cash cow. Mary Kay Andrews is a new author for the library and most of her books are now available.
