Jessica Mason isn't looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads him to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination.
When Ashley Showalter and Ben Henning meet on Ashley's horse rescue farm, they quickly discover how much they have in common. Both were raised by single moms. Both want to help where they see a need. And both work with horses in the Boise valley. The more time they spend together, both Ashley and Ben have the feeling that there could be something more between them.
But Ben is a recovering alcoholic with five years of sobriety behind him, while Ashley's brother is an opioid addict residing in court-ordered rehab. Holding fast to the belief that addicts can never be cured, Ashley has promised herself she will never walk knowingly into the chaos created by addiction. Will her brother's mistakes and the pain of her past jeopardize her future with Ben?
Businessman Jed Henning made his fortune with help from his brother Chris, but Chris has since disappeared. While searching for him in Boise, Jed goes to see the apartment where his great-great-grandparents lived as newlyweds in the late 1920s and discovers it's available for rent. The attractive landlady, Holly Stanford, happens to need a tenant.
Holly runs the restaurant left to her by her great aunt and uncle. Although struggling to keep it afloat, Holly still finds time to give back to the community, working with women in a local shelter.
But what Jed never suspects is that Holly is the one person who might help him find his missing brother . . . while at the same time helping him find the happiness and contentment he longs for.
