Fleur Wilson's life is suddenly upended when she receives an unexpected inheritance from a woman she has never met. The Victorian mansion, perfectly positioned near Bountiful Bay, located in the state of Oregon, is the stuff of dreams. But who is Eleanor Bountiful, and why would she leave her home to Fleur? Leaving her lower management position with a New York accounting firm, Fleur takes a plunge that could fulfill her lifelong desire of owning a bed and breakfast. The mansion, however, is not as pristine as in the photo from Mrs. Bountiful’s attorney. Sadly, the money received with the inheritance may not be enough to restore the home.
Enter, Jackson Winters, a successful author renting a wilderness cabin near the mansion. Having discovered the rundown home on an evening walk, he is enchanted by it. When he meets the owner he is enchanted by her, too. Because his life is in turmoil and he has the skills necessary to restore the mansion to its former beauty, he makes a crazy offer to do just that.
As Fleur embarks on the journey of making her dream come true, she also embarks on a journey of discovery into the mystery of her inheritance, with unexpected twists and turns.
