About The Book: 
Camille Gardner came to small town Louisiana in the name of big business. But will the town of Samford change her before she can change it?  A talented businesswoman in the oil and gas business, Camille Gardner agrees to take on one last assignment for her uncle at the J&S Production Co. She would rather be anywhere than Samford, Louisiana, the small southern town where she once spent the worst month of her life. Most of all, she wants to move on to the art gallery job that is waiting for her in Denver.  To fulfill the obligation she feels to her uncle and get on with the life she dreams of, Camille needs to entice a group of rural landowners to sell their mineral rights—and allow use of their precious water for the drilling of natural gas. Instead, she finds herself drawn to the local folk art created by those same landowners, and attracted to Marsh Cameron, the attorney representing them.
Camille must decide whether family obligation—and her own plans for her future—are more important than the lives and tradition of this small community.

My Thoughts About The Book:
I  thought this was a really enjoyable book. It was not one that provoked thinking, there was no big mystery to solve, but it was a fun read. This was one of those books you can pick up and read when you want to unwind and not have to think. The characters were believable and life like.   They were well-rounded and before the book was finished they felt like family.  Once I began reading it the book caught my attention and would not let me go until it was over.  This book was a great way to spend the weekend.
