A D-Day love story is uncovered, and a present day romance unfolds, when a young woman finds out that her family tree is a work of fiction. Emma Rowland searches for the truth about her ancestry, with the help of a shy American aircraft mechanic who already knows more than he is willing to say. A secret kept hidden since World War Two is revealed, and a DNA test comes back with surprising results.
Together, Tyler and Emma follow the trail blazed by a reckless young soldier and his blonde bombshell, determined to know if love survives in wartime, and what it really means to be brave. Ultimately their questions are answered in Paris, where they find sweet echoes of the past, but what does the future hold for them both?
A heart-warming and romantic tale that blends the wit and humour of a contemporary novel with the nostalgia of the 1940s.

Is there sex in this storie i need to now befor i get it
The plot was interesting. I liked the mix of the WWII storyline with a current day storyline. It seems to me that the characters were not so well developed. It also seemed like too much focus on the annoying relationship of the current day young couple. I realize it is a short story but less time and details devoted to Tyler/Emma would have made room for more about the other couples. And Tyler's parents added absolutely nothing to the storyline - adding vague references to their semi-disfunctional lives was unnecesary.
American Smile by Cody Young Emma Rowland goes to a dance with her friend, Helen. While there she meets a shy young man, Tyler Robinson from Idaho. Tyler is in the Air Force and a mechanic...not a pilot and has been stationed here in England. Their lives become entwined more and more when Emma's grandmother dies and leaves a mystery behind. There was something Tyler recognized in Emma from the get go and it could help solve the mystery of the past. Is their relationship just like most...American soldier far away from home seeks the comfort of a beautiful English gal? Or could it be more? Enjoy the adventure and heart break these two young people find on their journey to discovering the past and the future. Cody's unique writing brings history alive in a new way. The reality of her writing will want you to have tissues handy but no fear because the humor is there as well. My favorite was when the American soldiers were staying in an English church overnight, one of the church women asked a soldier closest to the door, “What time should I knock you up, dearie?” A statement any Englishman would have understood but totally different meaning for the Americans!
