**********

The female main character, Jenni Beth Beaumont goes from working for someone else, to remodeling her childhood home to start her own business. Weddings is the thing, and she wants to help bring as much business as possible to the little town she grew up in. Not only does she have to battle with getting the means to get the renovations done, but she is also battling her heart when it comes to Cole Bryson. Now all Cole wants to do is help Jenni Beth make her dream come true. While also trying to figure out what is all at stake when it comes to this project of hers? He was once the love of her life, and has his own goals for the Beaumont family home. These two character butt heads and have to get over their past issues to see if they could possibly have a happy ever after together. First time I have ever read Lynnette Austin, and I must say it brought tears to my eyes. This story touches close to the heart because I have known someone personally who has gone through the tragedy she talks about in this story. This story is what romance is all about, and completely timeless. The characters have such depth it is like you can their emotions coming off the page.
