Vivacious interior designer Amanda Billings is plagued by nightmares but determined to press on as if her ex-boyfriend hadn't turned her world completely upside down.
Ad man Mick Thompson believes Amanda is the one to make him forget the fiancée who dumped him and prompted his move to Kansas City from Napa Valley.
As Amanda begins to transform his depressing life right along with his sterile apartment, Mick is ready to jump on the relationship road with her, only to find out that the past is tagging along.
Interiors by Design contrasts manipulation and selfish obsession with true love and sacrifice. It is a story of two people's struggle to escape past mistakes and move forward to make a new life together.
Oh, and there's cats.

Bowersox read her own story, and she did a fabulous time. She did better than many "professional" narrators I'd listened to. I would listen to another book by her.
When Mick finally quits being an idiot. I almost stopped listening because I was so mad at him. But I'm glad I kept listening because I would have stopped just before he found his brains--and his heart.
The characterizations were excellent, and it was fun to hear the author's interpretation of the story.
No, but I yelled a few times about it to my husband. :D
This book drove me nuts! Bowersox wrote totally engaging characters. When one of them does something stupid--and like real people, they do stupid things--I wanted to stop reading. But those dang characters had me wrapped around their little fingers, and I had to keep on to find out what happened next. Very satisfying ending. I'm really glad I hung in there.
Yes. It's an interesting story and I thought the author did a good job with the narration.
I liked that it was more complex than I thought it would be. There are obstacles for Mick and Amanda to each overcome and it helped them understand their feelings better.
When Mick and Amanda finally got to really talk after he came back from California.
Not necessarily, but I enjoyed it overall.
Because I was listening, there were times when I wasn't sure if his name was Mick or Nick so that could have been made a little more clear (it's Mick, by the way).
I enjoyed the heroine's perspective. Finding a clean romance on audible is difficult! Very pleased. The author dealt with some pretty deep and intense subjects with a deft hand.
Mick-his loyalty and love was great. He never have up.
Her reading was a little slow- I sped it up and enjoyed it more
The birth was poignant - but that's a spoiler
