About the Book
Abigail Harper Cartwright was coming undone. As the promotions director for a Tuscaloosa radio station, a huge upcoming Mother’s Day live event could make or break her career. But at the same time, two former lovers have stumbled back into the picture turning her life upside down.
One old boyfriend – who works for a competing radio station, seems to be out to sabotage everything she does, while another may just be her knight in shining armor. But after being dumped during a very public marriage proposal, he may not be able to give Abby a second chance.
To make matters worse, a nosey neighbor has started an epic turf war and azalea bushes, a stolen mailbox and some front porch graffiti are the result.
As event day draws near, the dirty tricks at work get more intense and Abby has to call on her sassy sisters to help get to the bottom of it.
And Abby’s new/old love has another love of his own – a three year old thoroughbred horse whose name holds the secret to some long harbored feelings.
It all culminates in some Derby Day and Mother’s Day fireworks that will get your heart pounding and tears flowing.
National best-selling author Beth Albright does it again with this new Southern page-turner filled with romantic comedy, emotion, passion and laugh-out-loud humor. Grab your best girlfriends and hang on tight for this hilarious, exciting, sassy, southern tale.
Abby can’t catch a break when it comes to her PR arch nemesis, Greg. He steals her ideas and is the biggest player she’s ever met. While she’s busy coming up with ideas to catch Greg in a lie, her first love comes back into her life. The one whose proposal she turned down all those years ago…
I loved reading about Abby and her Southern charm. I really liked how she called herself “Zelda” in her book club, since Zelda Fitzgerald was so powerful and misunderstood. This book had some great description of Alabama flowers and scenery which was such a nice touch. The love between Ben and Abby was so real, even after many years. It was so believable too. It’s hard to make that flow sometimes and the author did a great job.
This book had lots of funny, sneaky things going on too which added to the story line. Abby has a “secret sister” who keeps giving her notes about how they support her and want to be her friend. She’s also fighting with her neighbor that thinks she is a life coach… Hysterical. 5 stars for this book!
