Addison Murphy is used to being one of the guys—she’s funny, down for adventure, and has a mean poker face. So much so that she’s asked to be her best friend’s groomsmen. But there’s a catch. She’ll need to wear a dress, help plan a wedding, and be walked down the aisle by newly returned childhood playmate and coconspirator, Tucker Crawford. The latter seems like a dream come true to Addie, but with late-night outings and one playful puppy, friendship with Tucker leads to awareness of a deeper connection. All of a sudden, Addie can have her friend and romance, too. But moving beyond friendship could lead to new problems, and leave Tucker and Addison wondering if they should have kept things the way they were.
VERDICT While the opening views on gender may be problematic to some, the way Addison reclaims herself will have readers rooting for the sassy heroine and charming ex-lawyer. The small-town atmosphere will make readers feel like coming home.
