Tree-huggin’, animal-lovin’ Bridget Pickwick-Buchanan is on a mission. Well, two. First she has to come to terms with being a widow at thirty-three. After all, it’s been four years and even her five-year-old niece and nephew think it’s time she shed her widow’s weeds. Second, she needs to find a buyer for her family’s estate—a Biltmore-inspired mansion surrounded by hundreds of acres of unspoiled forestland. With family obligations forcing the sale, Bridget is determined to find an eco-friendly developer to buy the land, someone who won’t turn it into single-family homes or a cheesy theme park.
Enter J. C. Dirk, a high-energy developer from Atlanta whose green property developments have earned him national acclaim. When he doesn’t return her calls, Bridget decides a personal visit is in order. Unfortunately, J. C. Dirk is neither amused nor interested when she interrupts his meeting—until she mentions her family name. In short order, he finds himself in North Carolina, and Bridget has her white knight—in more ways than one. But there are things Bridget doesn’t know about J. C., and it could mean the end of everything she’s worked for…and break her heart.

This is actually the second time that I have gotten to review this book. The first time was for the FIRSTWild Card book tour. And now this time.
When I had requested this book, it had unfortunately slipped my mind that I had already reviewed it for that tour awhile back.
Now don’t let the fact that I had forgotten the book to be any indication of how I felt about this book. Sometimes, I read so many books that they start blurring together!
This book was a wonderful book. The characters were really great. I loved the plot. It was one of those feel good books that leave you craving more.
