Edwina Huntington has resigned herself that she is stuck in Harmony, Montana at least until she pays off her family's debts. She is seen as a proper spinster and she does little to dispel this outside of her house. But inside, she dances to the newest music and even has one beer each week. (gasp!) Her past does haunt her, though it takes a while to find out why. Edwina decides to start a finishing school for young women, as she has the experience of living in Chicago for a few years. Unfortunately, the building she has purchased also got a new owner at the same time and the building must be split. Tom Wolcott is a hunter. He has decided to open a store that would supply and guide hunters through the wilds of Montana. These two co-owners are wary of each other as they go about trying to divide the building they don't want to share. Even their pets -her cat, his dog-can't get along. Tom starts to realize that Edwina, or Ed as he calls her to torment her, isn't what she appears. As they go about building their businesses they start to admire each other and to find themselves attracted to the person they insist is their opposite. As we know, opposites attract and this book is no different. But this is the only cliché in this book. These characters learn from each other and start to grow as they begin to lean on each other. Edwin and Tom are believable and compelling, and even the secondary characters add a lot to the book.
