I Heart Bloomberg / Melody Carlson /292 p.
Anna, Lelani and Megan don't know one another but they all have one thing in common -- they are needing to find a new place to live. An ad in the local paper for tenants to share a "luxurious house" in a great neighborhood has each of them sending in a resume and hoping to be one of the lucky girls to be picked for this too-good-to-be-true housing arrangement. After they are chosen by Kendall to share her house, they soon realize that Kendall hasn't been entirely truthful with them. Kendall's grandmother gave her a large run-down home and she's hoping that new furniture and accessories will distract her tenants from the reality. If she plays her cards right, she's hoping her new tenants will finance her shopaholic habits and become her new BFFs - on her selfish terms. Each of the girls, have their own heartaches and faults but they are soon working together to make Bloomberg Place the home they were hoping to share.
This is a sweet, if not realistic, story of how friendships are made in the most unlikely ways. The first book in the Bloomberg Place series.
