News producer Whitney Sheridan's job is her world—until her Aunt Claudia dies in her sleep. Instead of sticking to her original plan to spend a few days wrapping up her aunt's affairs in Washita, Texas, Whitney opts to stay awhile longer to supervise renovations her aunt had contracted for her house.

Since the death of her parents, Whitney has been determined not to care too deeply about anyone. However, staying in her aunt's home and becoming acquainted with Claudia's friends—as well as hostile carpenter Adam—seems to be changing her thoughts about what is more important in life: not being hurt or caring for others.

This book is a delight to read. The hero and heroine are intelligent and well depicted, and there are a number of warm and wonderful secondary characters. (Jan., 352 pp., $5.99)
