A charming new rural romance from the best-selling author of The River Gum Cottage.
Samantha, owner of Settlers Bridge cafe Ploughs & Pies, is short on confidence and big on regrets. Married young to fill the void left by an unhappy childhood, she still works in the same small town where she grew up, too filled with self-doubt and insecurity to ever risk spreading her wings. Yet will the end of her abusive marriage force her to start anew?
City restauranteur Pierce DeAngelis knows what it is to have his career and family ripped away. However, a chance encounter with the intriguing Samantha ignites his passion, and together they concoct a plan for a destination restaurant.
But, with their personalities like oil and water, will old hurts and hidden truths destroy the new business before it's afloat?
