Now Live: The One Who Loves You by Pippa Grant






class=”a-expander-content a-expander-partial-collapse-content a-expander-content-expanded” aria-expanded=”true”>

From USA Today bestselling author Pippa Grant comes a fabulously sharp-witted romantic comedy about a socialite’s fall from elitist grace to backcountry purgatory—and her accidental tumble into love.

If the Upper East Side had an evil twin, it would be Tickled Pink, Wisconsin. This run-down, backwoods town isn’t worthy of the footprint of my Louboutins, never mind all of me.

But when my grandmother has a near-death experience and realizes we Lightlys can’t buy our way into heaven, she relocates the family to Tickled Pink to work on improving our souls. And that’s how I trade my heiress existence for gigantic bugs, dishwater coffee, and a cranky single dad named Teague Miller.

Teague spends his days fishing, raising his spunky teenager, and after an unfortunate incident involving cheese curds, living rent-free in my head. The one thing he and I can agree on is that I don’t belong here. He’s willing to help me escape—until the unexpected happens.

I kind of like him. I might even more than like him.

But am I ready to give up the life I adored for a man I love to hate?



Excerpt from Pippa Grant’s Newsletter The Pipster Report 

From the texts of the townspeople of Tickled Pink, Wisconsin…

Teague Miller, aka the hero of THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU: FYI – I just got an email from some rich, uppity old white woman in New York City who thinks she needs to move her family here to Tickled Pink to “help them learn to be better people like that plot in the movie that was filmed in your town forty years ago.” Don’t worry though – I made sure she’s not actually interested.

Willie Wayne, the county commissioner and one of Teague’s friends: Wait, wait… how big of a family? And how rich are we talking?

Teague: Did you miss the “uppity” part? They’re from the fancy part of Manhattan.

Willie Wayne: Oooh, like the GOSSIP GIRL part of Manhattan?

Teague: WE ARE NOT BRINGING GOSSIP GIRL TO TICKLED PINK. Jesus. The kids don’t need that example, and I don’t need to clench my jaw so tight I need dental work when they realize we don’t have Uber or Broadway shows here.

Shiloh Denning, aka Teague’s ex-wife: Back to Willie Wayne’s first question. How rich are we talking? That bridge could use some repair work…

Jane, also a close friend to our soon-to-be-horrified hero: And we need to tear down that Ferris wheel that never got finished after the film crews left forty years ago…

Willie Wayne: And if they know Lola from Lola’s Tiny House, maybe they could get me her signature.

Teague: Lola’s… Tiny… House… WHAT?

Jane: Oh, lordy, he’s getting himself all tied up again over nothing…

Teague: We don’t need rich people invading our town and treating us like backwoods hicks who don’t know what smartphones are.

Shiloh: Can you please quit telling us why they shouldn’t come here and explain in more detail who these people are, and why you’re actually concerned enough that they’re serious about moving here that you’re alerting us?

Willie Wayne: Oh my gosh, IS IT LOLA HERSELF? Is Lola Minelli coming to Tickled Pink?

Teague: NO.

Jane: Check your blood pressure today, bud? You’re getting closer to forty with every passing day. Probably shouldn’t let your temper get to you like that…

Teague: It’s the heirs of the man who founded Remington Lightly a century ago, and they’re awful people, and I don’t want my daughter exposed to that crap in her own back yard. “Be better people” my left butt cheek. We’re not their little project.

Shiloh: Remington Lightly? Don’t they make toilet paper? And aren’t they responsible for that Kangapoo shampoo brand?

Teague: Yes.

Shiloh: What’s wrong with the family? Other than that Grandma Lightly apparently thinks they need to do some charity work?

Willie Wayne: Oh, wait! The Lightly family, right? Octavia is a big social media influencer. Lola talks about her sometimes on Lola’s Tiny House.

Jane: Does your wife know you watch all this reality TV, Willie Wayne?

Willie Wayne: Yeah, she watches with me. If the family’s anything like Lola and her family, this should be hilarious.

Teague: And, again, I’m not exposing Bridget to that kind of life and those kind of people. I’m showing the old lady the high school tomorrow, and that should be enough to chase them away.

Shiloh: You’re… SHOWING them the high school? Like, with your real estate license? For her to… BUY it?

Teague: She wants a place big enough to house herself, her son and his wife—separate bedrooms, pretty sure—and the three grandkids. School’s the only thing that fits the bill.

Shiloh: The old high school. The one overrun with bats and that we occasionally lose a deer to. The one that had that weird smell two summers ago. The one that we would’ve torn down with the money we got when that Deer Dropper bought a winning lottery ticket at the gas station two years ago if we hadn’t had to suddenly repair the sewage system. THAT high school?

Teague: That’s the one.

Shiloh: It’s not zoned residential.

Willie Wayne: Objection overruled! Oh, man. Oh, this is great. Teague, are they bringing in cameras too?

Teague: THEY ARE NOT STAYING. And no cameras. Absolutely no cameras. I’m only showing her the school so she won’t want to buy it. Or hell, maybe she’ll buy it, then abandon it when she finds out how much work it’ll be to make it habitable.

Shiloh: I’m still unclear why you’re so opposed to these people being around Bridget. She’s not exactly impressionable. Or are you worried she’ll rub off on them?

Teague: The old lady insulted your mother’s acting skills and implied that she’ll bring “culture” to Tickled Pink, as her God-assigned duty after her recent near-death experience. Don’t ask what she said this “culture” would be. Do. Not. Ask. And no, Bridget isn’t participating.

Willie Wayne: Won’t have time for culture if she’s spending all her days cleaning up that school.

Jane: For real. Wait. WAIT. Estelle Lightly? Is THAT the woman you’re talking about?

Teague: That’s the one.

Jane: Holy snarkbuckets. She’s loaded. And—whoa. I just found a slew of articles about her. She’s quite the piece of work.

Shiloh: That’s how it usually works…

Teague: And once again, louder for the people in back… I’ll make sure she doesn’t stick around.

Willie Wayne: Teague. Maybe you’re looking at this wrong. If this woman wants to come here to do good…

Jane: I’m with Willie Wayne. We can give this lady and her family a chance to show us they’re serious about not making more headlines for verbally eviscerating their friends in public.

Shiloh: If they’re anything like the Hollywood types I grew up around before my mom moved us back here, they won’t last much longer than necessary to realize it’s harder work than they think to get by without cabs, five-star restaurants, and social galas every night. Who are we to judge what’s in their hearts?

Teague: You’re all making me twitch.

Jane: The internet slowing down every Wednesday evening when the Deer Droppers come squat on our wifi to upload their p*rn makes you twitch.

Willie Wayne: No, that’s legit. And we know it’s not all Deer Droppers. Some of them are Tickled Pinkers. But Teague, you twitch when someone complains that bananas went up by three cents a pound. It doesn’t really take much to make you twitch.

Shiloh: That’s why he so rarely leaves his own place.

Jane: She has a point, Teague. You won’t even know the Lightlys are here, because they won’t be at your place, and they won’t be on the lake, so it’ll be like they don’t even exist for you.

Teague: One last time, for the people even further in the back… Estelle Lightly won’t stay. Not after I show her the only housing available for her to buy.

Willie Wayne: You say that… but I think this might be the biggest thing to hit Tickled Pink in forty years, and I can’t wait
