The fence that once brought them together now keeps them apart.
All Mandy wanted was a couple of photos. Instead, she has a broken foot, a bodyguard, and a crush on one of the most eligible businessmen in the country. Memories of a summer long past complicate her resolve to forget about her handsome childhood friend Danny.
Daniel Crawford isn’t sure what to do with his grandfather’s Indiana estate and is tired of high-pressure tactics from potential buyers. When he discovers a woman scaling the fence camera in hand, he determines to keep her off his land. He is surprised to discover his trespasser is the little girl who climbed the fence two decades ago to become his friend.
Struggling to find common ground, neither one can deny growing attraction. But with the paparazzi following every move and bloggers anxiously spreading rumors, can Daniel and Mandy mend the fences that have come between them?

Mending Fences is a sweet romance by Lorin Grace. It was the first book I have read by this author.
Overall, it was a good story. It was the story of the surprise reunion between Mandy and Daniel who had originally met as children for a single summer. The initial meeting went very poorly and resulted in a broken camera, a broken foot, and a whole lot of mistrust. Add to that mix a “handsy” athletic coach, an alcoholic socialite, some paparazzi, and a bunch of jealous females and you have the perfect recipe for disaster.
The story was told using alternating points of view, with an all-knowing narrator.
Despite the advances of the coach and a reference to a bordello, the story remained clean nothing going beyond a few kisses.
