I loved this story about a woman called Courtney who’d experienced something we all dream about - a chance at a new life through an inheritance from a wealthy man who believed in her. She won a house, property and money, enough so that she could take her troubled younger brother away from the bad group he’d become mixed up in. Unfortunately, when she arrived in her new place, the other inheritor, Derek, who’d believed everything would be his, wasn’t happy about this arrangement at all. Throughou

Caroline Clemmons, I loved this book. This was the first of your books I read and it won't be the last . The story was great. A poor girl, Courtney and her brother, befriend an elderly gentleman, while her mom is terminally ill in the hospital. Sam has a big heart and is rich and he puts Courtney in his will and leaves her money and properties worth 2 million dollars. His adopted son, Derek, thinks she is a good digger and he is out to prove it. Somewhere along the way, they start to be friends ...more

A slow building but emotional read about a down-on-her-luck young woman and her brother who get the chance of a lifetime - a new start with lots of money and a new home. Small town Sweet Texas isn't as welcoming as she'd hoped, but it seems to have a lot of good-looking and eligible bachelors - three to be exact, and all interested in courting Courtney for different reasons. Courtney only has eyes for Derek - a divorced father of two young children - the one person who thinks she's out to scam t ...more

Caroline Clemmons knows Texas, just as I do, so when I read one of her books I know I will feel at home. This sweet romance is a wonderful example of her diligence to detail in all aspects--setting, characters, dialogue, and conflict. Courtney and Derek make the perfect couple--finally!--with a couple of adorable children in the mix, along with a teenage brother of Courtney's, the action never stops. Try this story if you are looking for a gentle romance that won't make you blush.Celia

Great read. A slow building but emotional read about a down-on-her-luck young woman and her brother who get the chance of a lifetime - a new start with lots of money and a new home. With this extraordinary chance to change her life, the protagonist wants nothing more than to make good on her new responsibilities and to do proud, Sam, her deceased millionaire friend. Small town Sweet Texas isn't as welcoming as Courtney had hoped, but it seems to have a lot of good-looking and eligible bachelors ...more

This book needs a proof reader, I was a little surprised by all the 5 star reviews, the premise has lots of promise. It just fell a bit flat.The ending felt like that's where the story should begin. And what's with the 15 year old boy who cries all the time. Not that crying is bad ,it just seemed like ,not something he would do, he grew up poor in a very tough neighborhood, seems like crying would not be something he would be prone to. And the bad guy is never resolved ,at least to me. Maybe the ...more

Reviewed by JoAnne:
This was a wonderful contemporary romance that captured my attention from the first page to the last. I stayed up way, way past my bedtime in order to finish this book - I just couldn't put it down. There was laughter, tears, angst, arguments, romance and a great storyline. Courtney and Derek butted heads from the beginning and I couldn't wait to see what they were up to next. Courtney handled her life the best she could when either poor or rich but was genuinely a nice person

What does one do when you don't trust someone, but yet can't seem to fight the growing attraction for them? Derek is in that situation with Courtney, a woman that is a stranger to him. But now he has to face her because she's inherited a man's fortune. That man was like a father to Derek, and he suspects that Courtney is up to no good, hence the reason she inherited what she did.

But the more time he spends with her, the more he realizes how wrong he is. And his two kids take to Courtney and her
