This charming romance is set in Paris, Texas, a small town with a lot of people who have very big hearts. April Maxwell, now a marketing manager with a designer firm in New York City, returns to her sprawling ranch home to care for her dying father.

April shares a loft apartment with her amusingly named cousins, Summer and Autumn.

LI--sweet love story but nothing spectacular.
This is a cute, clean, positive romantic story about a city girl who comes home to tend to her sick father, and the country boy that is there waiting for her. I want to say it isn't as clever as one of her other novels, "Lacy's Retreat," but I was also a lot younger when I read that one and don't know if I'd like it as much now. If you enjoy the Love-Inspired series, you'll probably enjoy this book. Not terribly deep or challenging, but something to pass the time with.
