"fun contemporary romance"
In Dundee, Idaho, now in her early thirties, hairdresser
Rebecca Wells decides she wants to marry and raise a
family, but her fiancÚ prefers to wait especially with her
best friend and former roommate now married (see A BABY OF
HER OWN). Being her usual unpredictable self, Rebecca
gives Buddy the heave deciding to find commitment
elsewhere. Rebecca knows that she lives life in a frenzy
mode so that whoever she chooses, as a spouse, will have
quite an adjustment to her lunacy.
Her father believes neighbor Josh Hill would make a perfect
son-in-law. However, he is the boy next door for over two
decades who Rebecca competed against as a kid mostly for
her dad's affection. She resented him then and has not
changed her feelings towards him one iota, as her father
approved his endeavors while frowning at her. Deep inside
her gut, though she is loath to admit it even to herself,
Rebecca knows that whenever she sees Josh, her heart beats
faster. Could her hate have turned into love and what
about Josh? Does he think she is the wacky prima donna
from next door or is he feeling love too?
The return to Idaho is a fun contemporary romance starring
an eccentric individual who will keep readers either
laughing at her antics or rooting for her to succeed in
finding A HUSBAND OF HER OWN. Like the heroine the story
line is a bit off the edge, leading to fans of wild
romantic romps delighting in Rebecca's campaign though why
the urge to marry seems as strange as her frantic behavior.

Who's going to win the battle of Dundee, Idaho?
The town's bad girl or its favorite son?
Rebecca Wells desperately wants to overcome her
reputation. She's finally trying to put an end to her
twenty-four-year rivalry with the perfect Josh Hill, a
rivalry that began when she was a kid and the Hills moved
in across the street. Great-looking, popular, a successful
horse rancher, Josh is Dundee's golden boyand the
son her father always wanted.
But even when her father insists they call a truce, it's
hard for Rebecca to drop her resentment of Josh. She
refuses to acknowledge that she feels more for him than
she's ever let on. The man she loves to hate is also the
man she'd hate to love!
