Newly pregnant Alison Berg quits a promising career when her detective husband dies in a drug bust. After Joey’s birth, a grieving and exhausted Alison flees to the sanctuary of Sea View House in the coastal town of Pilgrim Cove. It’s a small town. A safe town. A quiet town. So inviting that she decides to move there, raise her son and bury the guilt that haunts her.
She hadn’t counted on…
Mike Romano, the ex-jock who lives across the street. Once a pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, he was cut from the team due to injury. Now he owns a thriving landscape and design center. He can’t understand Alison walking away from her cello and a major philharmonic orchestra. The dream of a lifetime. He also can’t believe that this gentle and loving woman wants a solitary life forever.
Determined to earn the trust of his attractive neighbor, he’ll stop at nothing to make her smile. Dinners. Babysitting. Flowers for her garden. As for being a volunteer firefighter…he’d always been willing to take that risk. But can he overcome Alison’s fears of being burned twice and accept his unpaid work as part of small town living?
Is the magic of Sea View House strong enough to turn broken dreams into a dream that can last forever?
