My Review:

Frankie Howard will warm your heart. Such a great character. After being deeply hurt emotionally, the last thing he wants is to be confronted by saucy, spoiled Ruth Ann, his best friends sister. But that attraction between the two of them is not something either can ignore.

Great historical romance set during the late 1930's that will make you feel like you've been transported in time.  

I listened to the Audible version of this book and once again I was mesmerized by the voice of Dawson McBride!
