Book Description
 December 21, 2014From New York Times Bestselling Author Charlotte Hughes
Can a Small Town Lawyer Get Lucky?
Atlanta’s billionaire heiress Annie Hartford has no desire to marry a man she does not love; but her controlling father has been calling the shots for his 29 year-old daughter her entire life. This time he has pushed Annie too far.
With minutes to spare before she is to walk down the aisle in front of 600 guests, Annie is forced to make a decision. She hijacks the family limo, only to have it break down in small town Pinckney, Georgia. Annie, who has never wanted for anything, suddenly finds herself homeless, penniless, with only the clothes on her back, a designer wedding gown and diamond tiara.
~~~
Small town lawyer and restaurant owner Sam Ballard has been unlucky in love, and the last thing he needs is a red-hot blonde in a short waitress uniform who seems hell-bent on breaking every dish in his Dixieland Café. Still, he can’t very well fire her, she has won the hearts of everyone in town.
Can rich girl Annie find happiness living in a garage apartment, wearing second-hand clothes, and making her way around town on a borrowed bicycle? As for Sam, can he put his past behind him and trust that Annie won’t run home to daddy when her new life presents one obstacle after another? 

It is nice to see this author back in the saddle, so to speak! It has been a while since she has published a new book.



This book is a very cute and warm one. A fast read, almost a popcorn read. Exactly what you need when you want to perk yourself up.




The story line is a simple one - a billionaires daughter realizes just minutes from the alter, that she can't go through with the wedding, she makes her escape and land in a small town without a penny to her name - or even clothes for that matter. Within hours Annie becomes a town favorite and is helped by just about everyone. Including Sam who owns a fairly famous eatery.




The story includes a bit of a mystery, a lot of humorous shenanigans and at least one steamy love scene. It concludes with the requisite 'happily ever after'.




If there is any complaint I have about this book it is that some of the characters speak quite stiffly or formally (if you understand what I mean) -I can understand Annie doing it, since she is brought up so differently what with going to finishing school. However I caught some of the small town characters doing the same thing at times. I also wish that Annie had had time to make her position clear with her father.




But, all in all, a satisfying read.
