Kendra Day is shocked to learn that not only has her dearly departed grandmother left her a pile of money, she's also left her a run-down cottage in Castleton, Maine. Kendra never planned on living in Maine, but she's sick of her dead-end job and decides it's time for a new adventure.
While looking for furniture, she stumbles into an incredible shop, right in Castleton, and a dining set she has to have. She's startled when she locks eyes with the new owner, Theodora, "Theo" Harmon, who's taken over the business from her uncle.
Theo's furniture is beautiful, but dealing with her surly personality tests Kendra's patience. Still, there's something about Theo that intrigues Kendra and makes her want to know more about the grumpy furniture-maker and find out what's beneath her tough exterior. One night, Theo takes Kendra into her workshop and one thing leads to another. Theo acts like nothing happened, but Kendra can't do that. Will she take a risk and tell Theo how she feels? Or will she try to forget and leave Theo alone for good?
