Genevieve Woodward receives a mysterious letter alluding to a secret in her parents' past. She returns home to the Blue Ridge Mountains to confront her parents but, she also needs a break from her high profile career. While Gen wants to talk with her parents, she is also hiding a secret of her own. She realizes she might need help when she wakes up in an unfamiliar cottage with the confused homeowner staring down at her.
Sam Turner has embraced his life as a loner and an outsider. He lives a solitary and disciplined life to make up for past sorrows in his life. He lives in a historic farm in the middle of nowhere. Sam has comes to peace with how his life has turned out and the last thing he wanted to do is rent his cottage to Gen. Sam feels that Gen is trouble but, he can't seem to turn her away when she needs him. Will Sam and Gen be able to lean on each other to get over their struggles?
I like that the novel had a little mystery behind Gen's family even if it took the backstage to Gen's and Sam's budding romance. I was a bit disappointed a few times with Gen because I felt like she didn't quite comprehend the seriousness of her "condition" including, trying to get Sam to "relax". I felt when she was around Sam, she was acting a bit childish instead of the strong and independent woman they portrayed her to be. Overall, the book is a good read for anyone who likes a cozy romance.
