She never intended to come home to Harrow, Massachusetts and, if she did, she planned to be married with a great job, not single and designing her former classmates' wedding bouquets. What's worse, why does she care so much that her sort-of friend Libby has set her sights on a fellow shopkeeper? She doesn t have a crush on handsome, chivalrous Dennis herself. Does she?
