And now her estranged mother has reappeared. As secrets from her family’s past and Ian’s true feelings emerge, she’s faced with choices she’s not sure she can make.

Jenny Winter’s life hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. As a young girl, she witnessed her mother die of an overdose and now the grandfather who raised her barely recognizes her. Forced to watch his memory slowly fade, she’s at an impasse on what to do with his tavern and her life. Her only escape is her music and her best friend, Matt Holcomb. He’s always been her support system, but she’s also harbored a crush on him for years. And he’s never shown signs he reciprocates those feelings. Then a moment changes everything, and she starts to wonder if his carefully constructed control isn’t a ruse to hide his own attraction. Yet something happened to him once that won’t allow him to engage, and if she wants her ever-after, she just might have to take fate into her own hands.
