Summary

Anastasia Villiers has hit rock bottom. And that rock is named Espoir Island.

Abandoned by her disgraced investment banker husband who liquidated all of their assets and fled the country, Anastasia is left with nothing - except for Fishscale House, a broken-down Queen Anne in the Michigan hometown she swore she’d left for good.

If Ana quickly renovates and flips the dilapidated building, she can get back to Manhattan and salvage her life. The problem? The only person on the island with historical renovation cred is Ned Fitzroy - Ana’s first love - who insists she help him with the labor herself. As Ana gets reacquainted with Ned, and her hometown, she realizes home may be just what she’s always wanted.

Previously published in the I Loved You First anthology.

Felt like I had already listened

I love Molly Harper, but I really wish Audible would have marketed this audiobook differently. It's a nice story. Actually really liked it, but I already bought it as a collection of stories called "I loved you First." Nowhere in the description did it say that this story was already published in this collection, so now I have it twice.

Molly Harper strikes again

Pasties and Poor Decisions is another cute stand alone novella by the ever delightful Molly Harper. The one-two combo of Harper and Amanda Ronconi as narrator is inextricably connected in my brain so I was delighted to find this little treat in my list of suggestions because I thought I’d listened yo everything she’d written already. My only complaint - too short! I could have handled another 3 hrs of Anna’s personal journey.

Sweet Novella

Of course I would have preferred a 10 hour story with all the details, but this was a nice novella. I would love to see it become a series.

good story

Another great story by Molly Harper. I love how Amanda Ronconi bring such life to the characters. This may be a short story, but I loved it. I hope there will be more to come.

The perfect palate cleanser

Molly Harper has such a charming style of writing!! Her characters make me wish they were all “real” and my best friends…even the paranormal variety. This story was the perfect charming interlude between longer, denser books…Amanda Ronconi, who narrates all of Molly Harper’s books is one of the best. Looking for a short book that will lift your mood…well, here you go!

2 1/2 hours total

I thought this was a full length book. It’s not. Felt like she wrote it during lunch. I love Molly Harper,s books and Amanda Ronconi’s naration, but this was a waste of time

Tiny Book

I love all Molly Harper books. except I just spent a credit for a very short book. I guess I should have been more careful to look at the run time but that doesn't keep me from feeling ripped off.

Loved it and I want more!

I sure hope this becomes a new series! A new scene, characters, and storylines are waiting to be told, I can just feel it.
