1.0 out of 5 stars What world is this? Nov. 8 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A recently divorced woman manages to (a) relocate on her own from NYC to rural New Hampshire, (b) keep her big-city soap opera scriptwriting job via phone and FedEx, (c) buy a "fixer-upper" house, (d) find a talented and handsome carpenter to do the renovations, and (e) fall in love with said handyman and live happily ever after. And all in the space of one or two months after the divorce decree! No days or weeks spent crying over the failed marriage, and not even much floundering around as a newly-singled person before she begins to have feelings for someone else. Hmmmm. What world is this? It's surely not the one I'm familiar with. Even the strongest person needs a few more months to get through such an ordeal, not to mention an emotional trek through the "seven stages of grief." I've read other Delinsky books and was disappointed in this one. Because I picked it up at a weekend church bazaar, I'm not bothered by the financial investment. It did eat up a few days of my reading time, though. Ah, well. Live and learn!

2.0 out of 5 stars Steeple-Chase Romance Feb. 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was indeed a quickie, in more ways than one. First of all, the romance came together too quickly. Chapter two ceased the intensity of the infatuation stage when the two characters were already touching. BORING. Not that touching is boring, but when you read a romance novel, you like a little bit of anticipation and challenge between your characters. Secondly, I would liked to have read more about Graham and his relationship with his long lost daughter. Seems that the plot was quickly thrown in at the last minute and wasn't very interesting to read. Tug at my heart strings with rekindled love, between family or intimates, and give me an ending that will make me sigh. Don't get me wrong, the story was cute, but I think most romance readers like a little temptation and saavy, not a steeple-chased love story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tsk, Tsk, Tsk Dec 24 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is not the Barbara we have come to know and love. This is Barbara cira 1983. I should have been smart enough to read the publisher's page. Obviously, in 1983 the term "make them wait" was ignored. When this consumate professional builder fell into her arms in the second chapter, I put the book down. Come on, puhleeze. This gives men a bad name,(although I'm not a man). No professional coming over to look at a job, which he has heartily refused, would be so sappy as to subcumb to his desires so quickly. Where was the build? Where was the mystery? I just shake my head. From now on, I'll read the publisher's page first, thank you for nothing.

I have read all of Barbara Delinsky's books. Of those books, there have been a number of rereleases. What is annoying is that alot of romance writers are doing this, and their material is not always as good as the current price of a paperback. If a book was released in 1983 the price of the paperback should be lower, and the cover of the paperback should also have an indication that this book has just been rereleased with the current content untouched. I'm from Ottawa, Canada and this paperback was very expensive. Alot of money for an outdated storyline and not much of a story to tell.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cashing in on a name... Feb. 1 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I agree with the other reviewers--save your money, before it is too late! I, too, saw it at the discount store and bought it before I read the fine print (i.e., when it was first published). It is a very weak story, filled with early-80's-type references and all the weaknesses of romances of that era. Do yourself a favor, watch these reprints carefully, and stick to Delinsky of the last ten years or so.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this one Dec 31 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
CARPENTER'S LADY is a disappointment from the second chapter on (the first chapter was promising). Obviously, the publisher wants to cash in on Delinsky's name. Reprinting this lackluster, outdated category romance (an old Sihouette Special Edition, originally published under the pseudonym Billie Douglass) isn't going to earn any new fans for the author though. Save your money.
