Mya Myers had no idea when she and her husband, Dale, purchased a hundred-year-old home that it would be costly to keep it updated and cause a rift in their marriage.

Dalton Myers, ‘Dale,’ a master carpenter, finds it hard always to keep the upkeep on the Victorian house when he must seek so many side jobs to help with the finances.

Harley is a master craftsman that seems to delight all the women in the area.

Mya cannot get over how their house is deteriorating and their assets are slowly going downhill trying to make the necessary repairs. To make matters worse, her marriage seems to be falling right behind in the upkeep, especially when Dale seems to forget even her needs. When his additional side jobs begin to take him further from her, she feels completely neglected. After hearing that Dale might be keeping the congressman’s wife closer than any carpentry work, she sets out to find her own carpenter to stir some delicious renovation in her life. After all, she has heard some good things from her friends about Harley. When Dale hears that Harley might be making more than repairs on his home, can he find a way to meet Mya halfway once again put the sparks back in their comfort zone or is it too late?

Sound Off is a delightful read. I enjoyed the characters of Mya and Dale, not to mention the secondary characters that added their own little seasoning to the pot. The dialogue is quick and keeps the story flowing smoothly. Ms. Dawn knows how to take a run-down home, in need of repairs, create some zest in a couples marriage and bring some thrills along the way, in this wonderful read that is truly enjoyable.
