A slumbering Georgia community almost chokes on its mint juleps when Hollywood calls to film the true-life (and death) story of a heroic local lawman. Aside from the chaos that trails in the moviemakers’ wakes, one person has a very private reason for not wanting the intimate details of the gentleman’s life story revealed—his widow, Grace.

So begins her inventive, comic crusade to obstruct proceedings, aided and abetted by a cast of quirky eccentrics, including the movie star’s personal bodyguard and a good-hearted ex-con with a private tragedy of his own. But, amidst the high jinks, nobody is prepared for the heartbreaking secrets that are finally revealed, secrets that will change all of them—hero, heroine, and movie star—forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “When this generous book throws its arms open to assemble a family with Boone and Grace at its center, the reader rejoices. Romance is about the future, and everyone gets a new one in this big-hearted Southern tale.”

    Washington Post

  • “No one is better at taking standard situations and giving them her own unique twist. Smith’s brand of southern humor and characterization brings a special flair to this funny, poignant book. Storytelling at its best!”

    RT Book Reviews (4 ½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “A romance to treasure.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Writing with an easy charm and sassy wit, Smith deftly fashions a splendid story of love and honor. Blessed with an abundance of delightfully eccentric characters and a plot that gracefully moves between past and present, this is a romance to treasure.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Smith blends Southern charm and Hollywood brass, kicking up the satire with Stone’s script notes, full of cliches, paranoia and celluloid-deep emotion. Her unflagging energy, forgiving spirit and mischievous imagination compel the reader to delight with her in the frailty of heroes on-screen and off, proving that Smith is one romance novelist who just keeps getting better.”
