I am looking for the title of a book.  I have searched using many search engines, Amazon, PBS, Audible,etc.  I just can't seem to find it.

This is a Female author.  

I listened to the book this year (summer, I think).

The book is part of a series, titled after the name of the town where the story take place.  The lead male characters graduated from the same high school.

The prologue starts when the main female character (mother) is still in High School.  She is dating a star ball player.  She has a really early curfew so she goes home and her boyfriend (father) goes out to a house party.  Later that night, she is informed that her boyfriend dies in a car accident.

She finds out that she is pregnant and her parents pack her up and send her to her aunt in TX so that no one in town finds out that she is pregnant.

Several years later, she and her son move back to her childhood home, across the street from her previous boyfriend's parents.

The brother of her previous boyfriend comes across the street to find out who is moving in and the son answers the door.

It takes a few weeks for the brother to discover that the child is his nephew.

Eventually, the brother asks her to marry him.  He uses a series of notes around the house and his nephew to make the actual proposal.

The car that the mother is driving is not in great condition.  The brother takes her car to the junk year and buys her a new car.

The girl moves in with her aunt in TX.  The aunt helps her register for school and she gets a hairdressing degree.

The aunt steals all of the letters that the girl tries to send to the family of the father.  She is very mad that the parents of the father never contact her.  She does not discover that the letters were never sent until she speaks with her aunt.

The brother runs a family contracting company.  The Uncle took over the construction company after the grandfather had a heart attack.

The father was cheating with another high school girl.  This other girl was pregnant.  She ended the pregnancy after the boy dies.  The brother threatens to tell the girl about the other woman.  This causes the father to race home in order to try and stop this conversation.  He is very drunk and gets in an accident.

Thanks,  Lanai

Thanks for all of the help.


I finally decided that I would search all audio romance books released in 2014.


Then I used the book covers and the descriptions.


Thanks,  Lanai
