About the book:
Tilly Mosier has only ever had one dream…to not work in her family’s store. She wants to live her own life outside the shadow of her controlling parents. When she’s presented with the opportunity to open her own dress shop, Tilly finally thinks her life is on track for a bright, happy future.
Until Hank Bartlett returns to Dry Bayou.
Hank Bartlett was always known as one of the meanest little boys in town, and he was meanest to Tilly Mosier, the chubby little girl who always got under his skin. Sent away to medical school six years before, he’s back home to settle down and plant roots.
The only problem is that the woman he wants to plant roots with is determined to keep him at a distance. He can’t blame her; he’s never given her a reason to like him or trust him.
But he’s never stopped thinking about her, the one girl he’s always wanted for his own.
What happens when a woman determined to live her own life is pursued by a man who is determined to win her heart?
