A romantic entanglement is the last thing Nina wants after she’s acquitted of murdering her abusive husband. Anxious to heal her broken spirit, she flees south where she meets and falls in love with Lee and his daughter, Robbie. Tasked with raising his daughter alone after her mother takes off, Lee also struggles to keep the small beachside cottages he inherited solvent. Nina suggests improvements, and the two work together to make it happen. Soon she becomes a treasured helpmate to him and a surrogate mother to Robbie—at least until the little girl’s wayward mom shows up.
