"Picture Sweet Home Alabama meets Hope Floats with a touch of something totally unexpected. Hollywood needs to pay attention to this one!!"-USA Today Bestselling Author, Diana Orgain

There’s a reason Emmeline Frothingham left her hometown of Creek Water, Missouri as soon as humanly possible. That reason is small-minded, judgmental people who wouldn’t know the truth if it was coughed up on them like an errant furball.

After graduating from college, Emmie gets her dream job in New York City. As the head buyer at Silver Spoons--a high-end boutique, and single girl about town, her life is ideal. That is, until the night of The Event, her company’s annual award's ball at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Nerves plus too much tequila leave Emmie dealing with a wicked hangover, the unemployment line, and a surprise to end all surprises.

Facing the repercussions of her wild night, Emmie is forced to go home to work in her family's business. But her return puts her dead in the sights of the gossipy country club harpies who drove her away in the first place.

Will Emmie make peace with her past and embrace the love of her family? Will she discover that the man who seems to be judging her most has a secret of his own? Find out in this deliciously fun romantic comedy, sure to put a smile on your face!

Reviews
Dineen (Relatively Happy) kicks off her Creek Water romance series with this delightfully zany rom-com that sees Emmie Frothingham, new mother to an adorable baby girl, returning to small town Creek Water, Mo., and the welcoming arms of her quirky extended family. Emmie’s nervous about how the conservative town will perceive her and her baby, Faye, born of a one-night stand, so her well-meaning but misguided family cook up a lie about Emmie having lost her fiancé, Faye’s father, to friendly fire in the Middle East. Emmie, the former head buyer for an exclusive kitchenware boutique in Manhattan, plans to lend her talents to her uncles’ newest business venture, but immediately butts heads with their contractor, Zach Grant. No longer the gangly teen whose invitation to the spring dance Emmie turned down in high school, Zach is now gorgeous, successful, and seems to despise Emmie. It soon becomes clear that their animosity hides mutual attraction, but complicating their dynamic is Zach’s belief that Emmie is still deep in mourning for her fictitious fiancé. An impressive arsenal of quippy one-liners and a host of meddling family members add plenty of laugh-out-loud hilarity and emotional authenticity to this sweet romance. Rom-com lovers should take note. (Self-published)
