Jericho “J.T.” Tucker wants nothing to do with Coventry, Texas’s new dressmaker. He’s all too familiar with her kind–shallow women more devoted to fashion than true beauty. Yet, except for her well-tailored clothing, this seamstress is not at all what he expected. Hannah Richards is confounded by the man who runs the livery. The unsmiling fellow riles her with his arrogant assumptions and gruff manner while at the same time stirring her heart with unexpected acts of kindness. Which side of Jericho Tucker reflects the real man? When Hannah decides to help Jericho’s sister catch a beau–leading to uproarious consequences for the whole town–will Jericho and Hannah find a way to bridge the gap between them?

Hannah has moved to a new town and is a dressmaker. J.T. the owner of the local livery and his helper Tom go pick her up and take her to her new shop and apartment. J.T. immediately takes a dislike to Hannah for what she does in life the dress making. He thinks she will ruin the town with her fashion and beauty. He thinks the women of the town will think they are better than their husbands and other people in the town. J.T. rarely smiles if ever and when he finds out his sister is getting help from Hannah he is not too keen on the idea. He can’t escape the beauty of Hannah though.
The characters work well with each other and it was nice to see how J.T. comes about in his way of thinking. It a nice christian read. Not too much to throw someone off of the read. Hannah is a wonderful person a bit too perfect at times. I found the setting well written. I could picture different things easily. I would like to read more by this author.
