All of Joan's novels have the same underlying premise: "It's never too late to live happily ever after." Joan lives her happily ever after in the Lone Star State with her hero, her husband. They divide their time between a Houston townhouse and a small house in the foothills of the Texas Hill Country where they grow fruit trees and wine grapes--despite the hordes of tunneling gophers, trespassing skunks, herds of deer, howling coyotes, and the occasional snake or two.

A billionaire, a movie star, a secret crush, a betrayal--just your typical high school reunion!

What could be worse for a former high school beauty queen, who never landed the only man she ever loved, than attending--alone--her 10-year high school reunion? Not much, according to textile designer Jane Louise Jones as she prepares to endure the weekend in her hometown, just south of nowhere in the rolling hills of Louisiana, with her grandmother and the rest of the well-meaning Vernon Ladies Bridge Club trying their best to find her a husband.

Jane agreed to attend the reunion because her best friend told her that Morgan Sherwood, the town boy-wonder who made good in a big way, was going to be a no-show. Morgan, once her secret love, was a geeky teen who stole her heart and then broke it before leaving town forever.

Isn't it awful when you can't trust your best friend? Morgan arrives with his entourage in a stretch limo, and he's not a geeky kid any more. He's six feet of tanned, rippling muscles, and he plans to focus his high-powered brain and every seductive charm he possesses on the lovely Miss Jones.

With a former classmate intent on claiming the billionaire as husband number four, a Hollywood star who shows up to party with Morgan, and an old boyfriend intent on stealing Jane's affection, Morgan has more obstacles than he'd expected.

Throw in the matchmaking Vernon Ladies Bridge Club, lots of southern charm, a ten-year old betrayal, and plenty of romantic humor for a heartwarming--and heart throbbing--romantic comedy that will leave you with a smile.

Happy Independence Day, America! Like most families, we started July 1 with the family members who live near us. By the time of an amazing fireworks show Saturday night, we had all indulged--probably over-indulged in brisket, baked beans, a tossed salad containing everything but the kitchen sink, scalloped potatoes, garlic bread, and warm frosted brownies topped with Blue Belle Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. Yum! Independence Day celebrations continue through July 4. By then we'll all be ready to go back to work.
