Chloe Winslow didn’t leave Pittsburgh – she escaped. Running from a life destroyed by lies, she finds herself starting over in the small town of Maple Ridge, Vermont. If she can keep her past a secret and keep her spirits high, she might just make it through her first year teaching at Sugar Pine Elementary. She learned her lesson about getting too involved in her students’ lives – this time, she’s going to keep her distance. Too bad she can’t help herself when it comes to her handsome, surly, standoffish neighbor and his troubled daughter.
Dylan Cunningham and his daughter, Dahlia, have been betrayed in the worst possible way. Between his broken heart and his daughter’s silence, Dylan has no time to worry about the attractive woman who’s moved in next door. But that neighbor also happens to be Dahlia’s new teacher, and he can’t just ignore her. And even though he’s vowed to never risk his heart again, Chloe is making it harder and harder to keep that vow.
Can Chloe mend their broken home, or are they just begging history to repeat itself?
