This story starts with a theft.
Iris Maeve has always had a penchant for things from the past. It's why she studied art history in college and why she opened her own antique store in Destiny Falls.
She prefers the simpler things, the slower pace of life in her hometown. She has her shop, her friends, and her little cabin in the woods.
Her life is going according to plan.
Until, one night, her store is broken into.
The thieves got away with some of her antiques and left her with a big mess to clean up.
Enter Arlo Michaels.
He's the bartender at The Fainting Goat Pub in town and everything that she wants in a man.
And it looks like he wants her too.
When Arlo starts coming around to help her pick up, she wonders if maybe she's in danger of losing something else.
Like her heart.
