He's not so sure about small town life. She can't imagine living anywhere else. Welcome to Apple Grove, Ohio (population 597), where everyone has your best interests at heart, even if they can't agree on the best way to meddle. When the townsfolk of Apple Grove need handiwork done, there's no job too small for the Mulcahy sisters: Megan, Caitlin, and Grace. Specializing in hard work and family loyalty, tomboy Meg Mulcahy has left behind any girlhood dreams of romance. Enter newcomer Daniel Eagan, looking to bury his own broken heart and make a new start. He's surprised-and delighted-by the winsome girl with the mighty tool belt who shows up to fix his wiring. But Dan's got a lot to learn about life in a small town, and when Meg's past collides with her future, it may take all 595 other residents of Apple Grove to keep this romance from short-circuiting. Praise for C.H. Admirand: "Admirand does an excellent job of setting the scene with her amazing flair for scenery and description."—RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ stars "Admirand has a sassy writing style that is simply irresistible!"—Huntress Reviews

Meg has not dated anyone else since Jimmy. I didn't like that this guy had so much power. Even when falling for Dan, Jimmy was still mention...
This is one of those books where I really liked the premise, but boy, the execution and delivery failed on all counts. It clubs you over the head with trying to be cute. Subtlety, thy name is not A Wedding in Apple Grove. I believe, at one point, the sheriff makes a threat to the woman he's interest...
I loved this book as I have loved all of C.H. Admirand's books. Meg was so refreshingly normal and I liked Daniel even though I wanted to smack him a couple of times. He just ran so hot and cold. But this was altogether an enjoyable book.
