When New Yorker, Ava McKenna, flees to the remote Shenandoah Mountains, she wants peace and quiet. House-sitting a charming log cabin and absorbing the beauty of the landscape is just the balm her soul needs as she tries to understand her boyfriend’s betrayal. When a handsome neighbor enters her life, though, she is enticed by new love before her tender heart has healed.
Local boy and ex-Marine, Winston Smith, is divorced and a confirmed bachelor. Spending time fishing and working are just what he needs – not a new love affair. But when he meets a woman who ignites his passion and tempts his heart, he must decide if he is willing to trust again.
When Ava’s boyfriend finds her, she must confront the past and examine what is truly in her heart. Win, afraid of being hurt again, pushes her away. When she flees, heart-broken, back to New York, he follows her and together they are forced to decide whether to trust in the future or hold on to the past.
