Jess moved far enough away from her old life, no one had ever heard of her late husband. Her quaint fixer upper was the perfect place to quietly start over, away from the judgment and scandal of her past. The only issue she has is Jake, her new neighbor. Once it's clear the rude cowboy has no interest in being neighborly any more than she does, she knows she'd made the right choice in this new home.
As if things aren't bad enough for Jake, rumor has it a widow lady bought the dump next door. He doesn't have time to add looking after some little old lady on his to-do list.
Jess wants solitude to heal the scars of her past, but once Jake gets a good look at the widow lady and discovers she is anything but old, he works to remove the boot from his mouth and maybe convince her to let him help fix up her place... and maybe even her heart.
