This is a book set in the 1800's.  I thought the name was "Home Sweet Home" or something like it.   About a woman living alone and falling in love (of course).  Can't remember any names.  The heros brother would drink all week and abstain on Sunday.  Just a cute book.  They end up getting married and everyone comes out to give them a chivaree-----------probably spelled this wrong. 

Drives me nuts and this is all I remember!!!!

Is it a western?  American historical?  Doesn't sound familiar to me either, but that might help to narrow it down.

It has been so long since I read it that it is fuzzy in my mind!  Takes place tward end of horse and buggy era.  I remember pieces of it, but not the true plot.  Going to drive me crazy.  I lent it to someone and didn't get it  back.  (When will I learn not to lend anything out that I want to read again?)

***Just remembered the front of the book had a homey look to it.  Hearth with chair by it in cutsey pastel colors.***
