Jenny Fields is a crusader. As the editor of her college newspaper, she's never met a cause she couldn't get behind. So when the administration announces it's tearing down the historic art building, she's on the case All she needs to do is get Matthew Townsend, the art department's boy wonder, on board. They say he his talent is unbounded. It turns out so is his ego.
Matthew Townsend cares about art. And that's pretty much it. If he has a reputation for being moody and aloof, that suits him just fine. He doesn't have a family worth speaking of, and as a scholarship student, he can't afford to goof off like the preppy rich kids at his school. He certainly doesn't care about the art building. Or about the relentlessly perky Jenny, who looks like she was barfed up by Rainbow Brite. What will it take to the preternaturally cheerful girl with the massive savior complex to leave him alone?

My one thought upon finishing this book is that it's too short!! I love Jenny and Matthew, both separate and as a couple, and I wish I could read more about them.
Though the story was short (in the sense that it's not a full-length novel), we do read enough about Jenny's and Matthew's personalities to see them as solid characters with believable motivations. I can believe that Matthew is attracted to Jenny's bubbly, colorful character, especially since he's been a loner (by choice) for so long. I can believe that he would like her. I can believe that he would be inspired by her. But love on both sides? I thought that's stretching it a bit, especially with the short time frame of the story.
So, if the author had left this at "like", I would've given this 5 stars. I also love the way the author took us back to the '80s, the way she slipped in little details. I can totally feel the vibe of that era.
THE FIXER is a sweet romance with solid characters and inspired setting. It's a great introduction to the series, and I'm hopping with excitement to read the next book, The Gossip. I hope we'll get more Jenny and Matthew, and I hope it's longer. :)
