It’s been a long, hard year, but single mother Anna is finally putting the past, and her cheating ex-husband behind her and is finally ready to dip her toes in the dating pool again.
Her best friend, Isabella, gets the ball rolling by placing a personal ad on her behalf and screening the men who write and forwarding on the few she considers worthy. Though taken aback by this at first, Anna concedes that if not for Isabella’s meddling, she probably wouldn’t have taken the necessary steps to get out there. So much easier to just stay home with her good friends Ben and Jerry.
Things really get interesting when Isabella’s match-making goes into high gear and she arranges for businessman Zachary Shelton to rent the house next-door to Anna. Isabella instantly recognized newcomer Zachary as Anna’s high school sweetheart who promised her forever, then moved away and was never heard from again.
Zach has some explaining to do, but that might be difficult~~his memory of those years is gone. He has no idea who Anna is, or why he is so drawn to her.
He’s also very different from the sensitive young man Anna remembered. This Zach is a hardened businessman, cold and detached and only in Beauville temporarily. The attraction is still there for sure, but does she even like this new Zach?
