“Sweet and deftly plotted, The Fixer-Upper will have you rooting for Aly to not just get the guy, but to get it all.” —USA Today

“This is for all the women who realize halfway through a long-term relationship that they’ve been carrying the entire weight of the emotional baggage. I can already tell you that people are going to relate to Aly’s storyline and can already see fans calling for a Netflix adaptation!” —Bookstr

“If you’ve got a problem, including a boyfriend in need of some serious motivation to change his life, Lauren Forsythe’s The Fixer Upper is sure to give you some inspiration.” —PopSugar

“There’s a lot to love about Lauren Forsythe’s latest foray into romantic, humorous women’s fiction. . . . The Fixer Upper has rom-com screenplay written all over it.” —Reader’s Digest

“Female readers, many of whom may feel that they carry the emotional burden in their relationships with men, will find that Lauren Forsythe’s debut novel, The Fixer Upper, hits pretty close to home. Billed as a ‘sassy feminist rom-com,’ the book is a lot of fun, full of cheeky one-liners and a cast of characters both sharp and heartwarming . . . . giving the reader time to ponder their own relationships while giggling at the absurdity of others.” —Christian Science Monitor

“Forsythe displays quite a talent for dialogue in this engaging novel. . . . An empowering story about self-worth all women should read.” Booklist

“Walking the line between rom-com and tale of self-discovery, Forsythe’s debut delights with sure-footed plotting and an endearing cast. . . Charming characters and quick wit make for a fun, breezy romp. . . [The] primary focus here is on Aly learning to love herself enough to stop putting everyone else’s needs before her own. It’s entertaining [and] readers looking for a smart, empowering blend of romance and women’s fiction are sure to be pleased.” —Publishers Weekly

“Forsythe understands the contemporary romance genre and writes with confidence. With likable characters and good pacing, this debut novel offers a great second-chance romance.” —Library Journal

“Aly’s desire to stop being a people-pleaser and start working on herself is relatable, and her journey to personal fulfillment follows a satisfying arc. . . . A pleasant [look] at the importance of taking responsibility for your own happiness.” Kirkus Reviews

“By turns witty and tender, observant and heart wrenchingly romantic in a thoroughly modern way. I will be thinking about it for a long time to come.” —Jenny Bayliss, author of The Twelve Dates of Christmas

“A wry, modern take on a rom-com, as funny and fierce as it is clever and warm.” —Abigail Mann, author of The Wedding Crasher

“A fun, fast read. A sweet childhood-friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy that I could totally see being a movie!” —Abby Jimenez, author of The Friend Zone
