Working with my hands has always been my passion, so now I flip houses for a living. I love what I do.


I was happy where my life was heading.
Although I knew he wasn’t the one, I was even content with my long-term relationship, until suddenly I wasn’t.
I needed a change, so I got in my truck and asked the universe to help a sister out. It was then that I stumbled upon a cute small town called Hope River. Ironic really…
Not only did the name of the town hold significance to my past, but it led me to find something I thought was once lost.
*A stand alone, second chance, small town romance.

Hope’s River is the first book in the Hope River series by Margaret McHeyzer. I have read and loved many of Margaret’s books and this one has a totally different feel. It’s not YA. It’s not dark. It’s small town, funny, and flirty. I am excited about this series and am already in love with Hope River.

Boy meets girl. Boy leaves and breaks her heart. Fate was being a bitch to these two over the years. It has been four years since they last saw each other and now they are in the same town. Hope randomly drove away from her home and ended up in a small town with a home she wanted to make beautiful again. In and out. She was a house flipper. Once she was done, she was selling and moving on. What she didn’t expect was to see him again. River.

River couldn’t believe Hope was in a town he called home for years. He wasn’t going to let her just walk away from him again. He happened to be the man she needed to help fix up the house she bought. Will she risk her heart again? Is this the time where they can finally get it right?

I love small town romance! I also love renovations! Hope is a badass for doing this kind of work. Giving homes the second chance they need. I enjoyed Hope and River’s banter even when I wanted to smack them. Haha. Hope is hilarious with her inner dialogue that sometimes was spoken. The supporting characters were awesome as well. May? I want to be her friend. Elle too. Charlie, oh, Charlie…you are trouble. I loved them all and excited to know I will see them again.


“Flower festival? Jesus, Hope, you’re already turning into one of them.”

“Hope?” I hear the deep voice call.
I look around, trying to figure out where the voice is coming from.
“Elle?” the voice breaks.
“God?” I look up, trying to stare at the sky. “Is that you?”

“Depends, can I eat it off you?” My eyes widen, and I’m horrified that I actually spoke those words aloud. “I mean, yes, thanks.” What the hell is wrong with me?
“Would you like me to lay on the table, or would the bed be a better place?”





“I’m sick of you pushing me away. Get out of the way of our happiness, Hope. We need each other.” His fingers find their way inside of me, and I suck in a breath as he plays and brings me to the brink of having an orgasm. Right here in a fucking vegan restaurant.


Wait, is it really hot in here? Has someone turned the heat on?
His mouth takes mine, muffling my sighs and moans as I concentrate on increasing this ecstatic explosion quickly rising.
“Oh shit.” I grab on to him, and try to grind against his hand. Shit, shit, shit. “I’m nearly there.” I keep moving my hips, wanting him to bring me undone. Suddenly, he pulls away and slowly brings his fingers up to his mouth. “What are you doing?” I nearly leap on him to finish what he started.
He sucks on his fingers, and winks. “You want me to finish?” I’m nodding furiously. “Then come to my house tonight.” He opens the door, and walks out.
What the actual fuckity fuck, fuck, just happened?

**Write something worth reading**
I’m Margaret and I’m a self-published author.
Recently I was fortunate in obtaining New York Times best-selling status on my YA/NA book – Ugly, and my YA book – Mistrust.
My last six books have been YA and I’m completely in love with the genre. I love being able to communicate with people through my words and stories.
My writing genres all differ, but the one thing I keep consistent is my heroines. All my female lead characters are strong, gutsy and not the ‘perfect’ woman. While my books all have romantic elements in them, they aren’t just about the romance. They’re about finding strength, acceptance and making life long connections.
I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I have while writing them.
