Forty-three and jobless, Cynthia Marshall finds herself back in the last place she’d expected—Madison Island, GA. Her small hometown holds the ghosts of choices past, from unresolved family issues to the boy turned man she left behind over two decades ago.
Converting her beloved aunt’s Victorian into a B&B should be her main focus, but having to work closely with her ex cracks the foundation of her carefully laid plans.
Marcel Lewis owns the only construction company on the island. He never quite got over the abrupt departure of the first woman he ever loved. Though years have passed, feelings have remained. But some wounds have yet to heal, and he wants answers.
As the renovation progresses, the walls of her old house aren’t the only ones tumbling down. However, Cynthia and Marcel can’t construct a future without answering for decisions of the past.
