One evening Samantha Bravencourt receives a wedding invitation to her old roommate Avery Jones's wedding in North Carolina. Where her Aunt Dovie just so happens to live. Once there she not only realizes it is not the right Avery Jones but meets a charming man Taylor, who is a P.I. Then in a chance encounter she reunites with Carson Brylie,who was a fellow teacher at a refugee camp in the Phillippines who also just so happened to have broke her heart there and a young girl Lien who was their student who now desperately needs their help. Samantha asks Taylor for his help but will working with Carson wreak havoc on Samantha's heart again? Has Samantha placed too many fences around her heart? Maybe her Mom who has cancer, her Aunt Dovie and her wacky boarders,or the young girl she once judged so harshly, who she is now trying to aid, can help teach Samantha some lessons about forgiving the past and having second chances.
I quite enjoyed this book.It was a lovely romance with some life lessons of forgiveness and acceptance. A light easy read that will make you smile not only from the budding romances but with the humor of the colorful characters. The characters are very likeable from Lien and her outgoing personality to Aunt Dovie and her inner peace she seems to exude on those around her. I think this book would be great for anyone who loves romance novels with a little bit of humor and tenderness.
