In this breezy Irish tale, twenty-six-year-old Aislin is at a crossroads. As a Dublin single mammy, a lot of her life needs improvement, yet what she really needs is a father. Not for herself—she so does not need a father—but for her young son, daddy-hungry Kevin. And she's determined to succeed at motherhood, if nothing else. So Aislin follows the mad impulse to track down the perfect father-figure for her little boy.
Who else but her first love, Ben Carpenter?
Ben is great dad material, and has a cozy manor house tucked away in a quaint little village in County Galway. All the same, after her truly awful breakup with him seven years ago, commitment-shy Aislin is determined to keep Ben at arm's length. Or at least very platonic. Besides, surely friends-to-lovers only happens in films, right?
Not...always! And now, along with this sizzling attraction, Aislin has new family complications to sort out. In this heartfelt novel of secrets, second chances and forgiveness, will Aislin find her own fairy-tale ending?
