Millie Branes is back in Cape Cod. She recently finished her residency in medicine and will start a new job at a walk in clinic. Now, Millie has a plan on how to get her love life going. Ever since she was a teenager she has dreamed of dating Joe Carpenter. He was nice to her once during an embarrassing situation in a school bus. She is determined to get him.
She comes from a close family. Her grandmother has left Millie her home. She gets along with her ex brother in law Sam Nicherson and her nephew. Unfortunately she doesn't get along with her sister. She has left her family and moved to New York.
Her plan involves loosing weight, so she starts running. She gets a new dog, because Joe has one too. She changes her hairstyle and her clothes. Her two gay friends help her with this.
But contrary to her plan, she starts having feeling for Sam, the local cop with a heart of gold.
I loved this book too. The way the heroine gets together with the hero at the end always makes me smile.
In real life it will be weird for Millie to be in love with her brother in law, but Miss Higgins makes it believable.
