Cindy A. Christiansenabout this book: Laird Avenue is actually a famous street in Sugar House, Utah. The house plan was taken from a real 1911 bungalow blueprint and adds to the realism of the story.
One of the challenges of writing this book was that the hero doesn't know he has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and the heroine doesn't understand why he is so quirky either. When you only get to write from those two perspectives, it makes it difficult to convey how intelligent the hero really is. Having two children with the disorder helped me to show how wonderfully creative and intelligent people with ADD can be. A few readers have commented that ADD is so common now that the hero would have to know he had a disability. Actually, this isn't true. There are many people who suffer with this disability that were never diagnosed in childhood.
No one said it was going to be easy for Tatum Stewart to start her own computer consulting business. Or buy her own 1911 Tudor Revival bungalow right after college graduation, but she was determined to make it on her own without her controlling father. When things start going wrong, she hires the only man in the city qualified to restore her home—Ryan Bulldarren. When Ryan discovers Tatum is going to sign-up with an on-line dating service, he protectively sets out to sabotage her dates.
Despite Tatum's attraction to Ryan, her father keeps dropping in to say, "Hands off the hired help." She is in way over her head when all of her business contacts fail, her mortgage payments are raised, and people keep breaking into her house. But Tatum has no idea who is behind all of what is going on. When the multiple break-ins happen, Ryan does the only sensible thing and buys Tatum a guard puppy for protection. Shocker when it only pees on her sofa.
Love on Laird Ave is a humorous, suspenseful read you won't want to miss.
