Missy Tippens Debut Novel is Wonderful

He's a wealthy, powerful, workaholic. She's a pink-haired waitress. His niece has run away and ended up with her. Now he's gotta go through her to get his niece to come home. A perfect set up. No two people could be more wrong for each other. It's as much fun as I've had with a romance novel. Just bright and funny and fast moving. I was completely in love with the poor hard-shell, soft-heart hero. I was rooting for the waitress to not get weak in the knees just because he was trying so hard and failing so miserably. But get a LITTLE weak in the knees, after all, he is gorgeous and rich, so give him SOME chance. It was just laugh out loud funny at times, sweet all the way to the heart and so charming I didn't want it to end, except I was desperate for Happily Ever After.

Hey Mary! You are so right! I loved it too. Did you remember I won a copy from the seekerville blog? Also baby calves that aren't Holsteins--I still have to think twice about Ivan dealing with 'other-thans'! Ok, back to work.
Later, Cooper
