All alone in a big public school and forced to take a job shoveling manure, Corrinne is determined to get back to the glamorous life she’s supposed to be living. But as she grudgingly adjusts—making new friends and finding romance along the way—this city girl begins to realize that life without credit cards and shopping sprees may not be as bad as it seems....
In this sparkling debut that flawlessly balances romance and humor, readers will grow to love sharp and sassy Corrinne as she goes on her totally reluctant but completely irresistible journey of self-discovery.
My thoughts: Okay, so admittedly, this storyline sounds familiar (anyone ever watch a show a few years back called Darcy's Wild Life? hehe, used to watch it with my daughter.) Still and all, the old "fish out of water" is a tale that I tend to fall for the charm of every time. More than anything, what draws me to this one is that fantastic cover! The beautiful country setting, the intimate way they are leaning in close like she is about to whisper in his ear, the sweet yellow dress and heels. I love it all!!
