Life is just about as good as it gets in Valentine, Oklahoma….
In this funny and poignant sequel to Cold Tea on a Hot Day, Valentine’s own Marilee James is engaged to Tate Holloway, the new editor of the Valentine Voice, a man whose sweet Southern sensibilities and melting kisses have convinced her to take a leap of faith. But marriage is a nerve-racking proposition—especially when she’s got a special-needs son and an abandoned niece to care for.
As she stands at life’s crossroads, Marilee needs a push in the right direction.
That push, ironically, comes from Stuart James, Marilee’s ex-husband and her son’s father. Gone these two years, he’s come back at the most inopportune time, pushing Marilee to think long and hard about the road she’s taking. But Stuart, with his charm, his talent and his own secrets, is exactly what Marilee’s heart needs to move into the arms of the right man…and into the happiness that’s waiting right around the corner.
