"Interior Designs"

Meet Martha Scott Cummings: an interior designer, an abandoned wife, and a newly single mother to her daughter Meadow. Now, she must begin an interior journey to reexamine the life she had, the choices she made, and find the strength to begin again.
She could wallow in self-pity amongst the detritus that is her life, or she could explore her feel-ings, study her behavior, and figure out how to redesign her life by changing the way she reacts to disappointments, betrayal, and insecurity.
Along the way to rediscovering who she was and who she can be, Martha reconnects with her best friend Maeve, who has been there for her in the past, but was somehow missing from her life during her darkest hour. Martha now realizes that she built walls around herself, shutting out those who could have sustained her.
There is strength in numbers, and her old BFF can help Martha retrieve the lightheartedness of her earlier life and even learn to laugh at and love herself again, flaws and all. Lots of girl talk, a girlfriend getaway, and new relationships characterize the days and nights of the newly rede-signed Martha.
But will she find a new love? And if she does, how can she prevent herself from destroying it all? Taking risks, learning to trust her judgment, and finding out that mistakes are part of the learning process, Martha takes a leap of faith and finds unexpected treasures.

My Thoughts...

This is the first book I've read by this author, Laurel-Rain Snow. The book "Interior Designs" is about girlfriends, family drama, and also an entertaining contemporary second chance at love and romance.

Martha is the main character while her girlfriend Maeve, one of the other characters plays a second banana support role. These two women strengthen their bonds and learn the power of a girlfriend. 

We also learn how the past has shaped some of the characters and affected their present day relationships. The plot is carefully and skillfully unraveled.

I found it a nice entertaining book. It is a book targeted for the woman who enjoys contemporary fiction.

This book is a part of my Kindle library and I enjoyed it enough to award it 4 "designing" stars.
