Sometimes treasure can be found where you least expect it.

In the decade since high school graduation, Christine Sawyer has realized her dream of opening Treasure Hunting Antique Mall, the place where shoppers find gems that are new to them. Between her store, her house, and her role as a doting aunt, she’s happy with her life—if a bit lonely. But she’s used to being less lucky in love than her fraternal twin sister. Britney was always the popular one, the head cheerleader who dated the homecoming king and quarterback, while Christine stayed in the shadows.

Brent Nicholson is still trying to come to grips with the shambles his life has become. After leading his football team to a state championship, he suffered a career-ending injury. Now he’s lost his construction business thanks to his so-called best friend. So when his great-aunt Midge asks for his help readying her home to put it on the market, the opportunity to spend time with his biggest fan is a balm to his bruised soul.

But the antiques Brent finds in his aunt’s house lead him to an unexpected partnership with Christine. After being blind to her for so many years, is it too late for the former high school jock to win the heart of the self-proclaimed “nerdy twin”?

As they shift through items of the past, Christine and Brent learn to let go of the pieces they don’t want to bring into the future—and realize the value of what’s in front of them today.

“Hometown charm and swoon-worthy second chances make this a must read.” —Kristen Mckanagh, author of Snowball’s Christmas

A refreshing, small-town romance about stepping out of a twin sister's shadow and being bold enough to step into the light. Sweet and vulnerable, an enjoyable read with a few twists and turns along the way. Easily recommendable. <3 It's clear to see why Amy Clipston is a favorite among so many Christian fiction readers.

This was such a heartwarming and feel good read. I loved the plot and the characters.
Many thanks to Thomas Nelson Fiction and to NetGalley for providing me with a galley in exchange for my honest opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story so much. Christine was a twin; the wallflower twin. Her sister, Britney, had dated Brent in high school. She was the head cheerleader and he was the football hero. They were the perfect couple. . . until they weren't. Britney had always told Christine that Brent had cheated on her but when Brent returned to town to help his aunt remodel her home, Christine kept bumping into Brent and she didn't think he was the type of person who would cheat. He was a good man with a good heart and she wanted to get to know this good man better.

There were bumps along the road and there were times when it didn't seem that there wouldn't be a happy ending. In the end, all ended well and love reigned supreme.

This is a new author to me and I look forward to reading more books by her. The story was clean and very swoon worthy.

I was given an arc copy of this book and I willing offer my honest review.
