Overview

Courtney Madison has battled poverty her entire twenty-five years but is determined to make a safe and happy home for her teenaged brother after the recent death of their mom. Her mom's illness left Courtney with a mountain of hospital bills, her formerly sweet brother Jimmy is now cutting class and hanging with a rough crowd, and she's just learned she's being downsized in two weeks. Hanging on by the threads of a fraying rope, she learns she's inherited two million dollars from a kind elderly man she befriended when he was in the hospital across the hall from her mom. She thinks her inheritance in West Texas is the answer to all her prayers--but Courtney learns that while money improves her life, it doesn't guarantee happiness. This modern Cinderella encounters problems even a fairy godmother couldn't imagine.

Rancher/entrepeneur Derek Corrigan has incredible instincts for flourishing in the business world. With women, not so much. In fact, his friends bemoan he's King Midas where money is concerned, but his judgment of women is pathetic--evidenced by his late wife and now the flamboyant woman he's been escorting of late. As far as Derek is concerned, all he wants is to be a good dad to his children Warren, aged 8, and Meg, aged 5. Derek suspects the worst of his new neighbor and vows to fight his attraction for her. The only way he can protect his children and himself is to keep his private life very private. Besides, he knows what women do to him--they always leave and take chunks of his heart with them. He's been there, done that, had the vaccination and is cured. Isn't he?

    A sweet story!

    I loved this story about a woman called Courtney who'd experienced something we all dream about - a chance at a new life through an inheritance from a wealthy man who believed in her. She won a house, property and money, enough so that she could take her troubled younger brother away from the bad group he'd become mixed up in. Unfortunately, when she arrived in her new place, the other inheritor, Derek, who'd believed everything would be his, wasn't happy about this arrangement at all. Throughout the story Courtney had to prove her innocence in bogus charges brought against her in her past and win the respect from everyone today. The love story was sweet and constant as these two found each other, fighting through misunderstandings and lost opportunities. I would recommend this story as a lovely way to pass an afternoon.

    This was a wonderful contemporary romance that captured my atten

    This was a wonderful contemporary romance that captured my attention from the first page to the last. I stayed up way, way past my bedtime in order to finish this book – I just couldn’t put it down. There was laughter, tears, angst, arguments, romance and a great storyline. Courtney and Derek butted heads from the beginning and I couldn’t wait to see what they were up to next. Courtney handled her life the best she could when either poor or rich but was genuinely a nice person. You couldn’t help but hope that her life turned out well through all the ups and downs. It was remarkable that she had such a good heart given her life and it was a pleasure to see her need to honor and remember Sam and Maggie due to her good fortune. It was also nice to see how Courtney and her brother related to each other – they had a sweet relationship. My only complaint is how the book ended. There was a happily ever after but it would have been nice if the book could have just been a little longer to see how they all fit into their new life. I have not ready any other books by Clemmons before but you can be sure I will add her to my to be read pile. I understand that there is also going to be another book in this series. Can’t wait to read it – I hope it’s as good as Home Sweet Texas Home was. Reviewed by JoAnne. Book provided by Publisher. Review originally posted @ Romancing the Book.
