Atlanta's billionaire heiress Annie Hartford has been under her father's thumb her entire life. At 29, he is now forcing her to marry a man she doesn't love in front of 600 guests. With only moments to spare, she hijacks the family limo, which breaks down in small town Pinckney, Georgia. Annie, who has never wanted for anything, suddenly finds herself homeless, penniless, and with only the clothes on her back: a designer wedding gown and diamond tiara.
There she meets small town lawyer and restaurant owner Sam Ballard. Unlucky in love, the last thing Sam needs is a red-hot waitress who seems hell-bent on breaking every dish in his Dixieland Café. Still, he can't very well fire her; she has already won the hearts of everyone in town.
After a lifetime of riches, can Annie find happiness in a garage apartment, second-hand clothes, and making her way around town on a borrowed bicycle? And how can Sam be certain that Annie won't run home to daddy when her new life presents one obstacle after another?

Small Town Romance
This was a sweet romance without any angst. A very easy read and I love small town romances. I really enjoyed the last two chapters and how the story came together. I wasn't expecting one of the secrets that was disclosed.
I liked all of the supporting characters and how practically the entire town had some part in making Annie's new experience enjoyable. As a supporting character, my favorite was Lillian and her little secret. I also loved Annie and how she finally took charge of her life. She stood up to her father and learned that life can be simple without all of the extravagant material objects that she was used to.
This is the first book that I have listened to from this narrator. I liked her voice and think that she really added to the story.
I would like to thank Ms. Hughes for reaching out and offering this audio to me.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. There was a twist and a slight mystery towards the end. I felt that the end of the book was rushed and could have included more detail on both Sam and Annie’s life. The twist that occurred could have also been a tad bit longer and could have given the reader more detail on how Annie’s relationship changed with Lillian and with Sam. I am from Atlanta, GA and could definitely see how a small town would embrace Annie as one of their own.
