I was very excited to hear Jen was writing a fiction book (yay)! I love her style and i was happy to find that she's still funny in fiction. Her use of footnotes is hilarious and I'm glad she used them in this novel.
As far as the actual plot - I can relate to the frustration of searching for the perfect home. Although this book reinforces my belief that I'm not cut out for purchasing a fixer upper - this house made the one in The Money Pit look like a weekend project.
