Eden Palmer knows how to make it on her own. This forty-
five year-old single mother has worked hard to raise her
beloved daughter. Melissa, Eden's daughter, has long been
the jewel of her life but there comes a time when a mother
must come into her own. So Eden moves to Arundel, North
Carolina to take ownership of Farrington Manor. Torn
between the desire to stay with her daughter and the need
to build a separate life on her own, Eden opts for some
much needed perspective.
Her move is met with delight in some quarters, and
jealousy in others. Pursued by two eligible bachelors,
Eden is flattered, and more than a little suspicious.
Juggling the attentions of two men is hard enough, but
soon Eden's bid to start over plunges her in the middle of
a mystery that threatens not just her plans and
reputation, but her very life. Can she use one man to save
her from the other?
