Dawn Taggert is in Oak Stand, Texas, to take a break from her life in Houston and to do a favor for her brother and his pregnant wife. She's temporarily running the senior center while they get settled in, and during their first months with the new baby.

Tyson Hart is back in Oak Stand working as a contractor. About to finalize a divorce from a wife who stepped out on him while he was stationed overseas, he's looking for a fresh start, too.

What a wonderful book! This one had me from the very first page! Everyone knows about best laid plans and all that. But no planner has a neat orderly column for love.

This is the very first book I read on my brand-new Kindle...and it made me forget I was even using new technology. I meant to just read a little, but couldn't stop til I reached the very last page.

I thoroughly enjoyed her first book, VEGAS TWO-STEP, as well, and her third book A LITTLE TEXAS is next up on my Kindle. A heartwarming romance! Makes me wish Oak Stand, Texas was a real ...more

Shelves: romance
Two single parents of teenagers(!) find love when she hires him to renovate the senior center in a small Texas town. Much better than I made it sound!

If you like Kristan Higgins and/or Jeannie Watt you will probably also like Liz Talley.

I unashamedly read, write and love romance books. I adore the weight of a book in hand and the anticipation of a happy ending. I love the journey, the word play and the magic of story. Nothing's better than reading a good book...except writing one. You can learn more about me and my award-winning romances at
