Some hearts are fixer-uppers, hers is a total flip.
For Danni Lowry, going home for her aunt's funeral means facing reality, and that's not something she's eager to do. Since leaving North Carolina, she's lost her money, her husband, and all hope for happiness.
She goes to the memorial, but regret hits her on arrival. She is about to leave when she bumps into Fisher, her childhood friend and one-time sweetheart. For him, she will stay for the memorial that challenges her grief... and her sanity. During the service, Danni swears she sees her aunt-the dead one-bouncing about, making fun and cracking jokes.
Certain she's lost her mind, Danni tries again to go, but Aunt Max won't allow it. She is a reminder that Danni has obligations. There is the hotel. It is now Danni's, and a sensible person would flip it before selling it. There is young Darby, the orphaned teen her aunt was adopting. Danni couldn't leave the child homeless. And finally, there is Fisher- loyal, dependable, heart-skippingly-handsome Fisher. The guy she didn't realize she missed until he was gone.
Fisher offers to help her with the renovations hoping she'll stay long enough for him to convince her they are meant to be together. Danni agrees to the help and to the friendship, but nothing more. She will not lose Fisher to love. Not again. It's better to stay friends. Friends don't break up like lovers do.
