Event coordinator Noelle Carter’s main priority is running the successful company her grandparents founded. After all, they’re the ones who raised her, and she’s the one they entrusted their company to after their deaths. So when a letter comes across her desk inviting her to plan the Spring Fling in her grandmother’s hometown of Balsam Falls, Nebraska, she’s faced with a choice: stay and work on maintaining Carter, Inc.’s current success, or go and take a leap of faith–outside of her comfort zone.

For contractor Wynn Bryant, helping others is the key to life’s greatest blessings. Over the past ten years, he and his brother have built homes for those who need them, creating a reputable name for themselves. Between that and helping out at the Serendipity Inn, his parents’ bed and breakfast, he’s put his other dreams on the back burner for now. Until the mayor ropes him into restoring The Gardens with a beautiful but guarded young CEO from Mississippi.

Connected by a desire to help others, Wynn and Noelle dive into restoring a neglected piece of Balsam Falls’s history while learning from, and of, their own pasts. Together they uncover past secrets, current challenges, and help each other discover healing and forgiveness in ways neither imagined. Will their discoveries lead to love, or are some things better left as they are?

“I can get one.” After having been here long enough, she’d learned where several drawers and cupboards were located, especially the ones containing utensils and bowls. “Does this one work?”

He turned to face her, and she second-guessed asking him. The space, or lack of, between the stove and island was not very much when there were two people standing there. And even with her heels, he was still much taller than her. Tall, lean, and devastatingly handsome. She may lack culinary skills, but she was ninety-nine percent sure that was a recipe for disaster.
