Perfect Pairings: Books and HGTV Shows


[Note from Frolic: This post is brought to you by our friends at Kensington. Looking for your next renovation fix? Look no further than The Rancher Meets his Match by Kate Pearce!]

Is there anything more relaxing than watching a good home improvement show? Not much! We love watching all of the rooms brighten and the colors come to life. Watching beautiful homes flourish reminds us of the beautiful love stories we find in romance novels. Our pick for today is The Rancher Meets his Match by Kate Pearce. It’s a swoony new romance novel that emphasizes family bonds and community roots. Read on to see which fun HGTV show we paired with this novel, and some of our other favorites!

The Rancher Meets his Match by Kate Pearce and We Bought the Farm

What better to pair with a swoony rancher romance than a show all about farmhouses? In WE BOUGHT THE FARM, families search for the ranch or farmhouse of their dreams. In The Rancher Meets His Match, Julia finds the man of her dreams in sweet jokester Kaiden. If you love watching people find their perfect match, this is the book for you. 

The Beard Necessities by Penny Reid and Property Brothers

Hot twins. Need I say more? I didn’t think so. If you love watching the Property Brothers kick ass and take names in the name of renovation, you’ll love Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series. You might just find some twins in there, too!

Rescue Me by Farrah Rochon and The Most Embarrassing Rooms in America

A fixer upper novel paired with a fixer upper show! In Rescue Me, Renee falls in love with Alex, who runs a construction company. They have to build their relationship from the ground up, just like The Most Embarrassing Rooms in America often has to start from scratch to give the horrendous rooms they cover new life!

Once Ghosted, Twice Shy by Alyssa Cole and Tiny House, Big Living 

In Tiny House, Big Living, people find the home of their dreams in small spaces! In great novellas, like Once Ghosted, Twice Shy, you get a great, swoony love story, just in less pages than a traditional novel. Give it a read today and fall head over heels for Litoski and Fabiola!

Real Men Knit by Kwana Jackson and Craft Lab

Crafters, this one’s for you! If you love getting your hands glittery and watching shows like Craft Lab, you’ll love Kwana Jackson’s Real Men Knit.
