Booklist Review

A two-year-old letter advising him of his brother Craig's death from an aneurysm induces bad-boy-turned-internationally-known-photographer Nick to return home after several years wandering the globe. To his fury, he discovers that Harmony Hills has virtually disowned his widowed sister-in-law, Jenna, and her two sons, turning them from society's leaders into its pariahs. Indicative of the change in their circumstances is their move from the longtime family mansion on Magnolia Drive to a ramshackle fixer-upper on Beulah Street. As Steffen explains, Anybody who was anybody lived on streets named after trees or generals. The \lquote other' people lived on streets named for old ladies. In addition, Jenna has taken in boarders to help pay the mortgage, and the four women, with attendant children, form a close-knit albeit nontraditional family. Egged on by Jenna, Nick decides to ferret out the truth of his brother's supposed embezzlement. Steffen's southern romance has it all--charm, humor, engaging relationships, and personal growth, with a large helping of justice to spice the mix. --Lynne Welch Copyright 2003 Booklist
