A Sweet Cure for the Grumpy Brother

(The sixth book in the First Families of Flat River series)
A novel by

She wants the adventure of a lifetime; he needs to heal old family wounds. If they are going to help each other, they cannot fall in love along the way.

Polly Phillips is headed west to help her best friend get married. She dreams of leaving the confines of the city behind and embracing cowboys, horses, and a sky bluer than anything she had ever seen. Why she even might try to snag a husband for herself! How lucky that she runs into a group of cowboys when her stage breaks down at the edge of Flat River. What she didn't count on was her first introduction to Everett Chapman being wrapped in his arms as he carried her to town.

Everett has no time for a city slicker, especially one trespassing through his property and issuing commands like a general. It doesn't matter how pretty she is, or how he would like to keep her quiet by kissing her lips. As the youngest son, he is the last hope in healing a family conflict going back nearly thirty years. When he is being pushed to marry his neighbor's daughter, Annamae Hartman, how can he concentrate on courtship, when every thought is consumed with the pretty blonde from the south?

When Annamae goes to Polly for help catching a husband, is Polly delivering the other woman into the arms of the man Polly loves? Can the attraction between Polly and Everett be pushed aside to help the Chapman family heal? Will Polly find the adventure she wants, even if it isn't the one she was seeking?

This book was originally titled EVERETT and released as part of the series called The Chapmans. It has been retitled and incorporated into the First Families of Flat River so the series may be expanded and include many new stories for you to enjoy, not just limiting it to one family. Nothing else has changed from when it was originally published.
