The Honey-Don't List


Carey Douglas has worked for home remodeling and design gurus Melissa and Rusty Tripp for nearly a decade. A country girl at heart, Carey started in their first store at sixteen, and—more than anyone would suspect—has helped them build an empire. With a new show and a book about to launch, the Tripps are on the verge of superstardom. There’s only one problem: America’s favorite couple can’t stand each other.

James McCann, MIT graduate, and engineering genius was originally hired as a structural engineer, but the job isn’t all he thought it’d be. The last straw? Both he and Carey must go on a book tour with the Tripps and keep the wheels from falling off the proverbial bus.

Unfortunately, neither of them is in any position to quit. Carey needs health insurance, and James has been promised the role of a lifetime if he can just keep the couple on track for a few more weeks. While road-tripping with the Tripps up the West Coast, Carey and James vow to work together to keep their bosses’ secrets hidden, and their own jobs secure. But if they stop playing along—and start playing for keeps—they may have the chance to build something beautiful together…


The book opens with Carey Douglas the assistant to Melissa Tripp. Really though she has been working with Melissa and Rusty for ten years since she was sixteen. They gave her a job in their first store when she was planning on dropping out of high school, they kept her going and were there for her when her own parents were not. She looks at the two of them as parents so she was doing more for them than she was for herself. She and her co-worker are giving the police statements of what took place you as the reader don’t know what has happened until you get towards the end of the book. Which is really a story that is being told.
Enter new hire, James McCann, a graduate of MIT and a recite employee of an engineering firm that was raided by the FBI. He is now just a glorified baby sitter for Rusty. That is until a night at a party when he can’t seem to find Rusty and asks for Carey’s help. Not wanting and yet does they or she finds him along with someone else in a room, not his wife.
After this, they are to go on a book tour where more is revealed about the marriage and also about Carey and just how much she does for the team, show just about everything. Going on the bus tour was not the best but it works for the story and leads you to where they are to go and be away from people for a time being but even that does not work out either.
I really liked Carey’s character you get to see her grow along the way and if it was not for her the story really would be a dud for me. Overall a good book. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars Follow us at
