    The small town of Redford, Georgia, is a tight-knit community in which everyone knows each other's name, family, and business. Jessica Reid has lived there all her life, apart from her college years spent in New York, where she cultivated her love of reading and writing. Now living back in her beloved hometown, Jess works as a romance novel editor, living a comfortable small-town life, with her dad just down the street. When a cherished member of the community passes away, leaving his multimillion dollar fortune in the hands of the two lucky townspeople who win the elaborate, days-long competition he orchestrated, Jess finds herself questioning her devotion to the town and its devotion to her. With Carter Barclay, the grandson of the mastermind behind the games, added to the mix, the romance editor finds herself on a romantic if obstacle-filled journey of her own. Fun, wholesome, and, at times, poignant, Waldon's third novel, following From the Jump (2022), will have readers falling in love with Redford and the diverse group of characters who call it home.
