Well, after finishing, there was a time or two Susannah put her foot down, but she seemed to be easily persuaded by Joe's "bossy" nature.

Monkey Wrench, the fourth volume in the Tyler series, is the story of Susannah, a local television personality in Milwaukee who comes home to Tyler at the urging of Joe, who is concerned for her grandmother's health. Susannah's grandmother thinks she's dying and is quite anxious to get Susannah married off and Joe seems like an excellent candidate. It was a very sweet little book, but I was a little irritated with Susannah's willingness to chuck her life in Milwaukee and marry Joe after knowing ...more

Monkey Wrench is the fourth book in the Welcome to Tyler series and the first that I have read. Normally I wouldn’t read book in a series unless I start from the beginning, however this book was recommended to me and I found the description to be interesting. As I got into to book (and did some research on the previous books) I discovered that it wasn’t a typical continuing story, so I wasn’t lacking any crucial background information. Monkey Wrench was a quick read for me. I enjoyed the cozy ho ...more

This is the 4th book of a 12-book series. It has the most quilting references, the most about the mystery, and the most sex-less romance, so far. I'm about 1/2 way done and I'm enjoying it thus far. Oh, Susannah! star of a Milwaukee TV show has come to Tyler to check on her Grandmother, who is having health problems. Rose, the Grandmother, is determined to matchmake Suzie with the resident handyman, to Suzie's dismay. But as has happened in the other books, it only takes a day, or 2, for romance ...more

Susannah, a Milwaukee TV host returns to fictitious Tyler Wi to take care of her ailing Grandmother, Rose. Joe Santori, the local carpenter is Rose's choice for Susannah. Career or potential happiness with Joe? Same as first 3 in the series but further progress on the murder at the lodge subplot that weaves the stories together.

I gave this 2 stars because I just never could bring myself to like the main character Susannah and that really brought my enjoyment of the book down.

Rose & Joe were characters that I enjoyed but most of the book was from Susannah's view point.

Numer 4 of Welcome to Tyler. Was hoping since it took place at Christmas it would cool things off outside. A cute predictable romance.

Started off really slow. Then it picked up. About a spoiled brat turning into a woman after she returns to her hometown to recover from a setback in life. She falls in love and gets the guy.
