Penny has a strong faith and will not compromise her standards, which I find admirable. However, she can’t see why East could be interested in her, so she makes a few allowances. Jonah is a businessman with a heart of gold who has taken his widowed sister and his nephew under his wing.
The rapport between Jonah and Penny is perfect, although Jonah is looking for more than the friendship Penny wants. Watch out there are swoony scenes ahead! So, who will she choose? The hunk or the hero? Can Penny find the acceptance that only God can give?

Estate planner Penny Thornton loves dusting off items others gloss over, especially since she relates to feeling tossed aside for the "bright and shiny." When her younger sister's approaching wedding launches Penny back into the throes of her dysfunctional family, she decides to use the festivities to close the gap in their relationships even if it means appeasing them and finally losing the few pounds they've hounded her about for years.
But she doesn't expect to meet two very different men in the process: East Fisher, the personal trainer who personifies everything she believes she could never attain, and Jonah Black, a man who reminds her so much of herself. Both men are more than they appear at first glance, and each seems interested in her romantically.
As Penny uncovers their hidden layers, she discovers when it comes to love and matters of the heart, she's got a lot to learn about estimating value.
