If only life came with instructions.
Boyd McNaughton is working on balance. He is a father, a
brewmaster, and the oldest brother of four. When he’s not
running Foghorn Brewery with two of his brothers, his days
are packed with carpools, teenage angst, and
well-intentioned school moms determined to send him on the
perfect blind date. After a simple argument ends with a
visit to the emergency room, Boyd discovers the one thing
he’s been neglecting—his life.
Ella Walters is working on connection. Having grown up in a
less-than-affectionate family of overachievers, she moved to
Petaluma for a slower pace and to escape her past. She has
friends now instead of accolades, chooses chocolate
croissants over super foods, and cherishes the peace that’s
replaced the drama. Sure, she occasionally misses the buzz
of the San Francisco General Hospital ER, but Ella is
learning that navigating a fuller life can be just as exciting.
When Boyd’s son, Mason, seeks out Dr. Ella for “advice” and
Boyd stumbles all over her newly healed heart, she finds
herself longing for something she never knew existed. But
families are messy, and they’ll both need to let go of the
past if they want to find a future that’s more than by the book.
