After losing her husband, her job, and her sanity, single mom Lola Sommers needs a plan. It's time to get back on track, and the tiny all-American town of Hope River seems like the perfect place to do it. But when Lola decides that fixing up her aunt's dilapidated house sounds more inviting than fixing up her life, she faces a new complication-the bossy and delicious Matthew Dawson.
Protective of his hometown and its people, Matt is used to fixing everything for everyone. When he finds himself facing the stubborn and independent Lola, he's not sure if he's annoyed or aroused. The dark-haired beauty has a way of getting under his skin-and sneaking into his heart-and Matt isn't sure if this city girl is worth the hassle. But when the meddling residents of Hope River decide to take action, Matt finds he has little choice but to give Lola a chance. Together, they discover that fixing a broken life sometimes means taking a risk on love... and that one life-altering event can change everything.
