Charlotte Grimes has a good life. She owns a thriving diner in Possum Creek, Tennessee and her hobby of floral arranging gives her a little extra spending money. Her son is grown and owns his own business as well as being an EMT for the county ambulance service. She has a calico cat, a bird that swears like a sailor, and a handful of friends that are true blessings. What more could a woman possibly want?
Brant Bookman is tired of life in the fast lane. After years on the stock car circuit, he's ready to find a place to settle in away from the limelight, fans and nosy reporters.
As fate would have it, people cross paths for a reason. Brant finds himself in Possum Creek bunking down with a group of younger men and finds himself face to face with a woman who reminds him of sunshine and blue skies. Definitely interested in the owner of the local diner, he runs into the wall where she's concerned. His competitive nature from the race track won't let him just throw in the towel and walk away. And if he does, will either of them remain unscathed?
