Because of an embryo on ice, widow Charley Bresser now has her late husband's baby on the way. With dreams of raising Baby Winter in the place where her heart lives, Charley plans on buying and restoring her great-grandfather’s mountain-top estate in Windecca, Georgia. What she doesn’t plan on is her late husband’s playboy brother out-bidding her at the auction.
For Grant Bresser, the property is just an investment to flip and return to New York ASAP. But as Charley helps him realize how much he loves getting his hands dirty, Grant finds himself falling for more than just the charming town. When Charley discovers that Grant is actually the man her husband pretended to be, she finds herself needing him. And Charley doesn’t need anyone, especially Grant.
When tragedy strikes Baby Winter, a dark secret is exposed that will change the way Charley's feels about herself and Grant forever.
Nine years ago, Emma Cole had two loves: music and the awkward yet brilliant guitarist Will Evans. When Will ghosted Emma, she lost both. Autism had Will’s heart locked away. Devastated, Emma stopped playing music and started playing it safe.
After tragedy strikes, Will returns with a faded scar on his chin and pain in his eyes. Emma and Will’s old fiery attraction reignites, and he discovers he can express his love through lyrics. But Emma can’t bring herself to sing again, as she has a secret that could close Will’s heart forever.
When the secret is exposed, Emma must face Will and the music.
Readers who enjoyed the lyrical love story in Heidi McLaughlin’s Forever My Girl and fans of the autistic love interest of Tracey Garvis Graves’ The Girl He Used to Know will find elements of each in this novel.
