Summer brought Anna and Aidan together, but can she finally let go of the past for a chance at a new beginning?
Though things will never be the same since her husband’s death, Anna Harris knows Lilac House, nestled in the Adirondack Mountains, will be the perfect place for her and her two children to build a new life.
The cottage is just as beautiful as Anna remembers, and soon she’s caught up in the rhythm of small-town life, helping her aunt run the little shop on Main Street and finally beginning to feel like herself again. Then she meets Aidan. Handsome, strong, and quiet, he also knows what it’s like to lose someone. In each other they recognize something they’ve both been missing . . . and a spark of undeniable attraction.
But Aidan’s hiding a secret. And just as the Lilac House starts to feel like home, Anna learns something devastating about her husband’s death that will make her question everything she’s always known to be true.
