Twelve friends. Ten-year reunion. One $50,000,000 lottery ticket.
The only reason Dr. Doug Little returned to work in Hopewell was to keep a promise. He's staying there for two years and not a day longer – if the hospital stays open that long. The only things getting him through the first couple months are his upcoming reunion and seeing his old high-school crush daily.
Although Jackie Dunn loves her hometown, she knows it is on its last legs. Even her position at the hospital is in peril. She's barely making ends meet with her side hustle as a caterer. Unless a miracle hits her small Manitoba hometown, it's going to be nothing but a dusty prairie memory soon—and so will she.
Then Doug and eleven of his former classmates who are attending their ten-year high school reunion chip in for a lottery ticket and strike the fifty-million-dollar jackpot. Doug could buy his freedom and save the hospital with money to spare, but Hopewell doesn't want to let their new doctor go.
By the time he can make his escape, Doug discovers Jackie is wrapped so tightly around his heart, leaving Hopewell and his new life seems like the worst mistake he could make.
