Successful Seattle businessman Jed Henning launched Laffriot with the help of his brother Chris, a video game design genius. But Chris has left Laffriot--and Jed--in the lurch. Jed comes to Boise to locate his brother, hoping for Chris's return before the company collapses. Perhaps the time away will also give him time to discover answers within his own heart. On a whim, he goes to see the apartment where his great-great-grandparents lived as newlyweds in the late 1920s and discovers it's available for rent. The attractive landlady, Holly Stanford, happens to need a tenant--and Jed decides to move in. Holly has set aside her dream of owning a bakery specializing in wedding cakes while financially tied to Sweet Caroline's, a struggling restaurant once owned by her great uncle and aunt. Nursing a wounded heart after being left at the altar a year before, Holly still finds time to give back to the community, working with women in a local shelter, teaching them how to prepare healthy meals. What Jed never suspects is that Holly is the one person who might help him reach his brother . . . while at the same time helping him find the happiness and contentment he longs for.
