Well...most women, anyway. Katie Lawson’s the one woman who isn't putty in his hands, and she's the only one he’s ever wanted in his arms.
Katie Lawson left Harper's Crossing in the middle of the night ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick's funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan.
Now she's on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco's top law firms. She's made a life for herself that's all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself WAY too busy to think about all that she ran away from. If she can do that, after all, she can keep everything under control.
But that rule is about to be broken. She’s headed back home to be the maid of honor in Nick’s little sister’s wedding. It's time to face the truth she's been avoiding all these years, the same one that sent her running ten years ago - that maybe she didn't lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper's Crossing.
- The nickname that she was given on the 1st day of Kindergarten was the root cause of some Jason hatred. (I think because his smug 5 year old self would not fess up to messing up her name paper. And she used RAINBOWS!) ***On another note, last night I sent my husband to the store because I needed a Kit Kat.
- Katie and I hate the same words. "I thought 'panties' and 'moist' were at the top of the 'perfectly valid words Katie hates' list."
- She quotes Anne of Green Gables
