All Olivia wants for her birthday is a one-way ticket out of town…
Rafe Minelli knows he won't get a second chance with his ex-wife. The demands of his double career—as a police officer and military reservist—were a dealbreaker when they were together. And he's thrilled for her when she lands a new job with a film company, but it comes with a deadline: when she finishes this project, she's leaving town for good.
Olivia has no reason to stay in Rafe's tiny hometown, where the only job she could find was waiting tables in the local diner. But she couldn't move on until she figured out what she wanted next in life. Now she's been tasked with the unlikely role of ambassador for a town that has done nothing but break her heart, and discovering unexpected surprises at every turn.
They aren't the same young kids who rushed into marriage the first time. But as summer slides into fall, Rafe sets out to prove he's a changed man before he loses her forever.
