All their dreams will come true…if they can work together.

Widow Paisley Wainwright’s so close to taking her Texas event-planning business to the next level by turning Renwick Castle into a wedding venue. Only one thing stands in the way: her longtime rival, Crockett Devereaux, who wants the castle to become a museum. When the building’s owners insist they collaborate to implement both plans, can Paisley and Crockett put their differences aside…and fight for their dreams together?

  1. Happy Saturday, Seekerville!

    I'm playing catch-up after being out of town for ten days, but it is so nice to get back to normal. :-)

    I hope everything is going well for all of you!

    1. Jan, I was excited to win your book! It will be a fun read at Christmas. I believe you are going to be in Minnesota next weekend for the Readers Retreat, aren't you? I am going to be there, too! It will be nice to see you again.

  2. Happy Weekend to all! Did anyone watch the Olympics Opening Ceremony? I lived in Japan as a child so I was tuned in and watching.

    Cheering for all our wonderful US athletes!
