Growing up in St. Dennis, Maryland Stephanie Wyler had three goals: Make ice cream, marry Wade MacGregor, and live happily ever after. It was a reasonable dream, but reality has changed her plans along the way. While she has achieved the first goal, time and distance have made the other ones very unlikely. Can she move past her youthful infatuation and carve out a new plan? Seeing Wade again and having her heart bruised – again – has convinced her that she must break the attraction she feels.
Wade MacGregor never expected his life to take such a radical turn. All he ever wanted to do was run his brewery with his best friend. Now his business destroyed and his partner dead, Wade has too many responsibilities to wallow in his misery. He returns to St. Dennis for the family connections he knows will heal his wounded spirit. He has explanations to make, along with a big apology to Steffie Wyler. He hopes she will forgive him, once she knows all of the facts.
