Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Fern Michaels inspires and entertains with a touching tale of the transforming power of love, and a woman whose broken heart finds room for the simple pleasures of family and home, and for discovering true love in the last place she expected.Darby Lane and Russell Gunn had been inseparable friends from their early years in the Horseshoe, their wonderful Baton Rouge neighborhood, all the way through to graduate school dreams and beyond. Then the unthinkable happens: a tragic accident takes Russ' life, and Darby's world is shattered.
Her long journey to healing takes hold as Darby begins to see Russ' brother Ben through new eyes. Suddenly love blooms in the place of grief and Darby faces the challenge of reuniting Ben with his estranged father, if they can get through the conniving schemes of Ben's social-climber stepmother. Like the custom dollhouses Darby creates with tender care and patience, she begins to understand that loss can build new life, and love truly can conquer anything.

Hilarious

This book is soooooooo funny! It's pegged as a "romance" but, it has more suspense than anything. No real "bedroom" scenes, etc. The author focuses more on the plot and the characters. I liked it, but would have liked more "romance" between the 2 main characters.

disappointing

It was my first book from F. Michaels and very likely it will be the only one ever. I usually finish every book but this story was as struggle from the beginning to the end. Maybe it has to do with the abridged version: uninteresting characters and a dull story. Look for something else.
