I read this a long time ago and all I can remember of the plot is that there is a young woman trying to save her house (where she grew up?) and there is an artist that lived nearby while she was growing up. He was older than her and I think he had a nickname for her like tomato nose or something that had to do with her nose.
She has no idea that he's in love with her and selling his art work to be able to save her house before its sold at a high price. There's a part where he saves her from a tree falling and I think there is a white fence or gate that has some significance.
Eventually she find out that he's been selling his art to help her and he says something about her saying such good things about the house that the man selling it was going to raise the price to more than he could afford to buy it with his art.
I can't really remember the cover and I have no idea about the author or title. It's a contemporary romance novel (for the time, anyway).
