Blueprints - Barbara Delinsky

Blueprints by Barbara Delinsky
Wanted to read this book because it's about architecture and building-something I admire others doing and enjoy the outcomes: I enjoy seeing things from a different angle than some.
Also the author's previous works speak for themselves and I know I will get a great read from this book.
Book starts out with Jamie MacAfee and she's just wrapped up the Gut It! show that she's involved in with her family business.
She is the designer/architect of the redone houses, her mom is the carpenter and the host and her father runs the business as his father will be retiring and her soon to be husband is the company lawyer.
Problem is her father has just told her the GM wants her to be the host for the next season which would mean they don't want her mother around.
Her parents are divorced and she tries to please them both. The building competition is also at her heels, the Barth Brothers.
Tragedy happens and now she has more on her plate than before...Love the fact that many generations of the family are followed in this book and real up to date problems
and the discussions with the older crowd. Love how strong both Caroline and Jamie really are in how they handle details in their lives.
Love picking up a book and learning, career of the women, words I've never heard that I do look up myself, what bands on the rings mean as I have  a necklace made out of the same three.
It's all the little things and the big things together that when they combine forces can achieve so much more. Love bonds of mother/daughter as their situations change through the book. Hot steamy sex scenes.
I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for my honest review.
