Amanda has a two-part query:
I need help finding a book! I checked it out of the library a few years ago and now I’m dying to read it again but I can’t remember much about it.
It’s one of those books where the heroine was weird/ugly in high school, left town, got pretty and is now coming back. I think for her younger sister’s wedding? And she bakes cakes for a living, so the plan is she will bake everything for the upcoming wedding. Lucky her.
The hero is a guy who was Mr. hot-shot in high school (of course) and never left town. The heroine had a huge crush on his in high school and the scene I remember most vividly is the flashback of when, in high school, she went so far as to lie down in front of his car in protest of him dating some other girl.
Beyond this I can’t remember much. The sister’s wedding breaks off and the hero and heroine get their HEA. I think this books was published by zebra sometime in the 90s?
P.S. I love these novels where the girl comes back to her hometown completely transformed and dazzles the hero who blew her off in high school. Could you recommend any books with this sort of plotline?
It’s like a makeover plotline, only slightly different, and I confess, I like it too. Part ugly-duckling, part returning-home – all potentially awesome. Does anyone remember this book, and do you have any recommendations for “Coming Home Only More Hotter” books?
