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.

This was a fun listen. Not deep, but I smiled and laughed throughout the entire book. If you are a Susan Elizabeth Phillips fan you will love this book. Great narration too.
This book was a pleasant surprise for me. I didn't expect to like the main character or her trunk-ful of family drama as much as I did.
This was a very satisfying audiobook, great for a long trip or afternoon on the beach.
This was my first fiction audiobook and what a great way to get hooked. The narrator did a tremendous job and the content was fun, engaging and just what I wanted, light entertainment. It would be a good read but an even better listen!
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
Carlisle left the south and its phoney aristocratic attitudes. She became a successful lawyer, however when her mother needs her she takes a leave of absence and goes home to bail her family out. The fun begins, Carlisle finds out the hard way what it takes to wade thru the bull....that is Southern blue bloods idea of high society. Our girl, wades in and gives it her best shot. What a fun ride, until her mother throws her a real shocker!!
I LOVE to listen to audiobooks - the Audible ap is by far the best thing that's ever happend to my iPhone.
What a wonderful, refreshing book! I truly enjoyed this book - and the performance of Susan Bennett was 100% perfect (A+++). If you enjoy light-hearted books - you'll certainly enjoy this one!!!
Great book, funny and light, with wonderful dialog that had me laughing out loud, and very well read. Let's see more from this author!
A devil in the Jr. League is her other book which I loved
Always love the accents of the narrator
the journey of mothers and daughters, and our expectations, what we think it should be, and the beauty and peace of embracing it how it is.
Susan Bennett did excellent narration!!
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 wasn't too sure about this one, I am just not into "southern society," but it was a really funny story, I really enjoyed the whole thing.
