Julia Windham is a woman who just wants to be left alone. She doesn't really want anything to do with neighbors or animals. But there is an instant attraction when Nick's daughter, Bet, meets her. Beth throws her arms around Julia and constantly begins encoraching into Julia's personal space!
This is a sweet story that, really, wouldn't have happened without Beth. She has a storng spirit, a loving heart, and a go get 'em attitude that will get her far in life. My favorite part is the surprise waiting at the end of the last chapter!
This story wasn't nearly as romantic as the first story in this book, but it was certainly a keeper!
