So Carlisle takes a leave of absence from her law firm and goes to Texas to help. Her fiance, who has no idea she's an heiress, can't know that she's organizing the ball, handling the dramas of the girls involved, settling her mother's suit - and coming face to face with the true love of her life, whom she ran out on when she left Texas.
Her trip home challenges Carlisle's sense of herself and brings the pieces of her past togther, so that when she finally re-meets the man of her dreams, she's in a perfect place to tempt fate.

I would recommend this to anyone who has ever been to Texas or is from there. This story was absolutely hysterical! I am an ex-Texas girl myself, and this book brought back so many memories of typical Texas ladies and expectations, etc. The author clearly did her homework.
Te4xas is one of the only places that has kept their old traditions of debutaunte life. It gave a true rendition of this tradition and added a great romantic back story.
No, but I will now.
It made me laugh out loud in some parts, and keep flipping the pages.
I loved this book and most of it might be because of the EXCELLENT Narrator. I mean, it wasn't story of great literary height but it was funny and entertaining. The Narrator made the book. She was great!
The female was a strong character with a well developed history and interesting relationships. The narrator did a great job. The author seamlessly transitioned into flashbacks and the relationship conflicts were grounded enough to balance the fluffy chick lit-ness.
I stayed up late listening to this book, and didn't want it to end! Susan Bennett did an amazing job portraying the wonderful story written by Linda Francis Lee. It was very entertaining and engaging - didn't lose my interest once. I have listened to other books where the narrator ruined a great book (mostly by mispronunciations or monotone voice). Hands down this was one of the most fun and engaging audio book I have experienced. I felt part of Willow Creek and enjoyed getting to know the characters. The only other book that came close was The Devil in the Jr League, also written by Linda and narrated by Susan. Thank you for a great experience!
Loved it! Great story and great narrator. Can't wait to get the next book from Linda Francis Lee
the story and the heroine are hilarious and engaging. linda francis lee's debutante series is a perfect vacation read. bennett does a wonderful job bringing the stories to life with a subtle southern accent and a wry tone.
