New jobs. New joys. New heartaches.
For three months, the Double O has been a haven for Chanel and Maddox while he recovers from a career-ending neck injury. When worry fades, the arguments begin and intensify as they start planning their future.
Chanel lands a dream job in Boise just as Maddox accepts a coaching position at Doumit University, a long three-hour drive away. Sick of chasing his dreams, Chanel wonders why Maddox can't sacrifice something for her for once.
As if her heart matters weren't enough stress, Chanel's father, Mitch, has met someone. Despite the many years since Chanel's mother died of breast cancer, the thought of a beautiful artist taking her place still hurts.
Mitch tries to respect his daughter's feelings, but he finds the idea of rattling around his big, empty house forever terrifying. He's ready to love again. If he can't convince Chanel to give Lynne a chance, it's going to be a very long winter at the Double O Ranch.
