Penelope Hunter loves her job as the event manager at one of Savannah's premier historic venues--until her ex-fiancé walks into her office with his new bride-to-be. Surely she cannot be expected to plan their wedding. To make matters worse, a scheming social matriarch is threatening to take her big-ticket event elsewhere, especially if Penelope insists on being seen with her best friend, Tucker Westbrook.

Since returning from serving two tours in the Middle East, Tucker has built a thriving security company. His work is nearly as stabilizing as his lifelong friendship with Penelope. But when the lone candidate for county sheriff goads him, Tucker loses his cool and ends up on the ballot--and on the receiving end of a smear campaign claiming the Westbrooks were traitors to the South.

To clear his name, Tucker and Penelope must join forces to find the truth behind a lost Civil War treasure. But the more time they spend together, the closer she comes to losing her job--and falling helplessly in love.

When accusations of treasonous behavior by one of his ancestors threaten Tucker’s campaign for Sheriff, he and his best friend, Penelope, set out to disprove the slander by seeking the treasure his family was accused of stealing.

I was captivated from the start by Liz Johnson’s clever way with words. Witty, tongue-in-cheek moments fill the pages along with sweet aah inspiring situations. PJ and Tucker experienced intense emotions as they struggled with feelings of inadequacy and their growing realization of their feelings for one another.

It was also fun to also have Carolyn’s story told through her journal. The answer to the mystery of the missing treasure was slowly revealed along with hints of a romance.
