    Disclaimer I am from the Netherlands, and I had never heard of Leanne and Steve but, I was interested in this book because what they do is part of my day to day life as a home stager, interior photographer and decorator Work in Progress tells the story of a brother and sister that always have seized their opportunities and are not afraid to fail both hopping from job to job to find their passion in interior design and construction finally I like the set up of the book a lot it s like Leanne and Steve are sitting on the couch telling their life stories, filling in the blanks for one another from childhood until the end of the season of their first HGTV show So far so good, it s a beautiful story of a happy family but, I miss the depth in their story, the pain that their lives inevitably have offered except for their father passing, that part is the only hard life event in the book The parts where things get interesting For instance living in New York, working as an intern with no income I cannot imagine that life was as easy as it appears in the book And that s with almost every story It s too shallow I do appreciate the positive vibe in the book, but, without the dirt, life has to offer the questions for the readers to answer, feel out of place Since it is such a quick read, I would not have minded another 60 or so pages to make space for real life experiences.

    I really wanted to love this story, as I love tuning in to watch Restored by the Fords Steve and Leanne take turns sharing short stories and insights, all throughout the book There are some great moments, but overall it felt like something was missing.
