About The Book:

BLUEPRINTS by Barbara Delinsky

Some women are born with an instinct for knowing how things work—and what to do when they break.

Caroline MacAfee is a skilled carpenter, her daughter Jamie, a talented architect. Together they are the faces of Gut It!, a home renovation series on local public television. Caroline takes pride in her work, and in the way she connects with the show’s audience.  But when she is told the network wants her daughter to replace her as host-the day after Caroline’s fifty-sixth birthday-she is devastated. The fallout couldn’t come at a worse time.

For Jamie, life changes overnight when, soon after learning of the host shift, her father and his new wife die in a car accident that orphans their two-year-old son. Accustomed to organization and planning, she is now grappling with a toddler who misses his parents, a fiancé who doesn’t want the child, a staggering new attraction, and a work challenge that, if botched, could undermine the future of both MacAfee Homes and Gut It!

For Caroline, hosting Gut It! is part of her identity. Facing its loss, she feels betrayed by her daughter and old in the eyes of the world. Her ex-husband’s death thrusts her into the role of caregiver to his aging father. And then there’s Dean, a long-time friend, whose efforts to seduce her awaken desires that have been dormant for so long that she feels foreign to herself.

Who am I? Both women ask, as the blueprints they’ve built their lives around suddenly need revising. While loyalties shift, decisions hover, and new relationships tempt, their challenge comes not only in remaking themselves but in rebuilding their relationship with each other.

    My favorite place to curl up is in bed. That’s where I read at night and it’s why I prefer paperbacks or print copies of books.

    My absolute favorite place to read is on the beach, but if I am at home then either the couch or the rocking chair.

    My favorite place to curl up with a good book is the deep stacks of an old library. I don’t get to do it very often though these days.

    I love to curl up outside on the patio. It’s especially nice if it’s raining(I have a covered patio so I don’t get wet!).

    This sounds like a good book. In the Fall and Winter I like to read in front of the fireplace.
