Friends to lovers to...parents?
Mallory Lombard and Drew Driscoll grew up next door to each other in a small cottage town of Port Carling, north of Toronto. Despite their differences—Mallory is a homebody, Drew an independent journalist addicted to travel—they’ve been best friends forever.
Best friends, and only friends, until one snowbound weekend on a ski trip in the Rockies when unexpected sparks fly and they end up in bed together. Later, they both agree it was a mistake to risk their friendship by becoming lovers.
Easy enough to say, but Mallory has never cared for any man more than Drew—and two months later she discovers she’s pregnant with his child. Keeping the baby is a given—but what will Drew say? She’s about to tell him the news when his mother unexpectedly dies.
Drew changes his plans and travels back to Port Carling. Before long he is completely overwhelmed. Funeral arrangements, a house to sell—and who will run the family newspaper now that his mother is gone? Then he finds out about the baby. Perhaps the universe is telling him it’s time to settle down. But is he ready?
