Come home to Darling, VT, and a new heartwarming series by New York Times Bestselling Author, Donna Alward!
When Laurel Stone's garden center is targeted by vandals, she comes face to face with the man who once broke her heart: Aiden Gallagher. Aiden's now one of Darling's Finest, but the memory of how he hurt Laurel back in high school has stuck to his conscience. Helping her get back on her feet is the least he can do to make it up to her. And as time goes on, he realizes how much he cares for the woman she's become: strong, resilient, and compassionate.
Laurel's willing to forgive Aiden's past transgressions, and before long it's clear the old attraction between them still sizzles. But it's harder for her to move past the loss of her dreams now that her divorce is finalized, and her ex is remarrying. Ever accommodating, Laurel has kept things amicable, but attending the wedding has all her resentments and disappointments bubbling to the surface. Aiden tries to be supportive, but what Laurel needs most is to stand on her own two feet, and she pushes Aiden away.
When their friend George meets with trouble, Laurel and Aiden must work together to get him back on his feet. Is this the opportunity for them to salvage their relationship, or is it goodbye for good?
