Who said coming home is easy?
Liz Beacon has life all planned out-prioritized, color-coded and cross-referenced. She long ago traded in the geeky high school nickname, teenage pounds and dysfunctional family for a fab career, killer abs and a man every woman would envy. Okay, so her sex life is non-existent and her almost-fiancé is technically a coworker. Life, if not perfect, is still on track. But then, Liz is called home to Sugar Falls, NH, to prepare her childhood home for sale. She's spent ten years denying her insecurities and hokey lawn-ornament roots. There's nothing she'd rather do less than face all she happily left behind, including her embarrassingly one-sided high school crush.
Carter McIntyre has sailed through life on his winsome smile... and by the skin of his teeth. A college drop-out with ADHD, he's learned it's safer to play the carefree charmer than step up and take over his uncle's landscaping business. But then his class valedictorian returns to Sugar Falls and hires him for some home improvements. Now Carter's wondering if it's too late-to grow up, take a chance and win over the only girl who ever believed in him...
