When two handsome strangers come to the charming community of Finch's Crossing they succeed in changing the town dynamics--one for the better, the other for the worse. And neither Autumn Hamilton nor Meg Overly want anything to do with them. An artist, Autumn is struggling with an intense creative block that threatens her beloved way of life. And Meg is nursing a fierce loneliness that she hides from everyone, including herself. The two friends must work through their own problems before romance even stands a chance. And to further complicate matters, the men have the kind of baggage that just might be a little too heavy for the women to carry.
