When Marci’s fiancé is caught with his pants down, she gets the push needed to get away from her mother’s bad matchmaking and overbearing expectations. Marci finally takes her future into her own hands. Answering a Craigslist ad to run the Snow Drift Inn has her moving a few hundred miles away and escaping into a sleepy mountain town. The sexy handyman commissioned to help her is a surprise she didn’t see coming.
Caleb planned on a quiet life far from the front lines of the military. The problem is, quiet isn’t exactly agreeing with him. The quaint sleepy town doesn’t attract much attention from tourists and the empty Snow Drift Inn across the street is a constant reminder of his dead dream to run an outdoor excursions company. The unexpected woman answering the ad for a new manager makes him question everything he’d planned for his life.
Can they put aside their pasts to find a future, or will Caleb’s fear of loss and Marci’s mother get in their way?
