In The Fixer Upper, Andrews tells the story of Dempsey Jo Killebrew. After her boss is caught in a political scandal, the fledgling Washington lobbyist is left broke, unemployed, and homeless. Out of options, she reluctantly accepts her father's offer to help turn Birdsong—the fading Victorian mansion he recently inherited in Guthrie, Georgia—into a real estate cash cow. But Birdsong turns out to be a moldering Pepto-bismol-pink dump with duct-taped windows, a driveway full of junk, and a grumpy distant relation who's claiming squatter's rights. Stuck in a tiny town where everyone seems to know her business, Dempsey grits her teeth and rolls up her sleeves, and begins her journey back to the last place she ever expected: home.
