Eliza Shepherd is known for the exciting adventure columns she writes with her husband, Jamey. But when Jamey dies while climbing, Eliza finds herself lost, confused, and trying to rebuild a life on her own.
When Jamey's mother is widowed, too, Eliza makes a decision: to accompany her mother-in-law back to Jamey's hometown and help her settle in. It will give Eliza the chance to work on the book she's writing about Jamey, and take her away from a life that isn't working for her anymore.
She doesn't expect the pain she'll find there - or the pleasure.
Eliza has already had one good man in her life, and isn't looking for another. But love has a way of appearing, whether you're ready for it or not.
