When Annie finally finds her in nearby Bonner Springs, the town's handsome veterinarian mistakes Annie for a con artist out to swindle his father. Can they work together to bring their wacky parents---and their own hearts---to their senses?Elaine, LibraryDiva at GoodReads, says: This LFY novel has more depth to the storyline than some of them I have read with several minor plots lines i.e. the relationship between Max and Willa, the 3 lost/stolen coins, the relationship between Annie and her sisters, and the tension between the Hicks and Kelly families. I enjoyed the developing relationship between Joe and Annie and the manner in which Joe encouraged Annie in her reconnection to her faith. The humor of the Armchair Detective Agency specializing in finding lost things was a nice thread. Looking forward to more from this new-to-me author.
