A Trumpet and Vine NovelLarge Print - 2014
Avery Broussard was savoring her long-dormant optimism. It was the first anniversary of her husband&́#x80;s death, and she was finally going to buy the dress boutique from her former mother-in-law. After a year of saving, the deal was nearly done. Avery was about to get her life back. But every deal in Samford, Louisiana, can change at the whim of a Broussard. After being unceremoniously ejected from the very boutique she planned to buy, the boutique she herself had rescued from ruin, she becomes a woman without a future suddenly at war with her late husband&́#x80;s family. When carpenter T.J. Aillet begins working for the Broussards doing manual labor, he overhears enough to know that Avery is being victimized. Soon enough, T.J. is lassoed into the squabble by his family connections, his good heart and the undeniable attraction he feels toward Avery. But the Aillets are no strangers to Samford society and T. J. knows what happens when you cross the Broussards. Could these two misfits ever make a start together? Or will the pressures of Samford society pull them apart before they even get a chance to try?
