With high hopes, Daphne Ballinger lands her dream job at The New York Times. But soon writing about weddings becomes a painful reminder of her own failed romance, and her love of the city slowly sours. Is it time to give up the Big Apple for her small hometown of Appleton? When her eccentric Aunt Dee passes away and leaves a sizeable estate to Daphne, going back home is an easy choice. But the downright odd clauses written into the will aren't so easy, and if Daphne doesn't agree to the terms the estate goes to... Aunt Dee's cats. And if Daphne thinks that's odd, wait until she finds out an array of secrets about Aunt Dee's life, and how imperfect circumstances can sometimes lead to God's perfect timing

Delightful discovery, and I can't wait for the next installment to find out how the year passes and who, if anyone, meets the criteria for getting married within a year!

What would you do if your beloved aunt passed and left you everything, only to discover: 1) she wasn't your aunt at all; 2) you alone were told her many secrets; and 3) there were stipulations in her will that could leave you without any inheritance within a year if you didn't meet them? This is the first of two books dealing with Daphne and the will of her aunt.
