What do you do when your groom gets cold feet?
For Jesse Winsloe, the answer is clear: head into hiding. Single again laid off from work, Jesse flees Onery Cabin to lick her wounds her ancient aunt Will—a Granny woman with the secret to healing the lovelorn.
Sure, Onery Cabin may be right out of Hollywood’s Lifestyles of the Poor and Hillbilly, but Marrying Stone Mountain has its charm—including the local physician’s assistant, Piney Baxley, a past recipient of Aunt Will’s pungent “heartbreak poultice.”
Between folk remedies and a “no strings attached” romance, Jesse is beginning to think she’s found her own brand of lovesick cure—because there’s nothing like a pinch of confidence and a dash of attraction to mend a broken heart.
Jesse Winsloe is a heart broken girl, and for good reason her Fiance swindled her out of a job and his heart all in one full swoop. When she finds herself facing them over and over again the determination to leave town for a bit is an easy one. Jesse heads off to Marrying Stone in the Ozarks. The location of this book relates so well to the story and adds to it in many ways. Jesse's aunt Will lives in Marrying stone and is there to help her mend her broken heart, in an unconventional and smelly way! Her niece Camryn is a fun character as a teenage girl who is trying to find what she wants out of life, although her methods at getting it may not be the best ones.
But the best character is the handsome physicians assistant Piney. Something about this man just gets under my skin and makes his so likable to me! Is it the way he cares for his town, or raises his teenage son, or jumps in with both feet. I can't put a label on it but I love him and assure that you will too!
