The year following her father's death, Aspen Kincaid sold her father's successful restaurants in Hawaii, packed up her minimal belongings, and jetted half-way around the world to Coventry, New Hampshire. . . towards a home that Aspen never even realized her father had purchased; in the town where she had been born, in the town where her mentally ill mother had disappeared thirty years prior. Impressed that her contractor, Garrett McCarthy had already sketched out some beautiful renovation plans for the property, Aspen was still fairly convinced that she only wanted to give the old home a face lift, sell it for a healthy profit, and move on with her life. She never counted on Coventry's cold reception or what it might cost to investigate her messy family history. And of course, she never imagined that someone might want to cause her bodily harm.
Aspen needed help. Could Garrett be that person, or would forming a personal attachment be a mistake; the better question being, could she trust him? And if not him, then who?

"I didn't do right by your mother. Find her and do what I never had the courage to do.”
Her father’s deathbed confession changed everything for Aspen Kincaid. The mystery of her mother’s disappearance was unsolvable, or so she’d believed.

Renovating the secluded old house on the mountain should be the next step in Garrett McCarthy's contracting career, but Aspen’s arrival stirs up old animosities in Coventry that he'd known nothing about. All he wants is to complete the job, hoping it’ll open doors to new opportunities. But when he’s asked to keep an eye on Aspen's activities, he feels he can’t refuse. How can he honor his beautiful, vulnerable client and remain loyal to the people who need his help?
