Come hell or high water, Emmy Jo Massey will have a wedding. After three generations of Massey women with children out of wedlock, she wants the whole town of Hickory, Texas, to witness the legitimacy of her union with Logan Grady. But dream weddings aren't cheap. So she accepts a highly lucrative stint as a home health assistant to retired realtor, and town recluse, Seth Thomas, decision her great-grandmother Tandy is dead-set against. Seth isn't happy about it, either. The eighty-two-year-old doesn't want a "babysitter" much less a Massey- something he makes clear when Emmy arrives at his house, an empty mansion built for the woman who broke his heart. But as Emmy stays and the two eventually open up to each other, she learns the reason behind a feud between Seth, Tandy, and Logan's grandfather Jesse Grady that goes back six decades. She also uncovers a secret that forever changes how she sees her past and her future ...

I loved this book! I love the southern charm and quirks found in Ms. Brown's books. Her characters in this story ranged from those about to get married and start the next part of their lives, to the great grandmother of the heroine and several gentlemen the same age. There were really old prejudices and hurts that needed to be resolved and parts of the older generations stories that needed to be brought to light. Emmy Jo goes about doing that when she goes to work as a health aide and assistant to one of her great-grandmother's old beau's and she starts to wonder about who her great-grandfather really is.
Emmy Jo's romantic life with her fiance, Logan, takes somewhat of a backseat to the story of the past, so if you're looking for lots of romance and action this book may not be for you. This was a sweet story and I think the narration by Brittany Pressley of the audio book added immensely to overall experience.
