Lily Gentry never planned on coming back to Mint Springs. Why give everyone in town another opportunity to gossip about the worst night of her life? But when her grandmother’s failing health means bills her family can’t pay, Lily comes home—small town rumor mill be damned.
Chance Allen stayed away too long, missing his grandfather’s last days and returning to a run-down farm he barely recognizes. And now it’s his job to make things right by getting the place ready to sell. One problem… he can’t do it on his own.
Asking Lily for help isn’t Chance’s first choice. The spitfire from his teenage days isn’t much fun anymore. And Lily’s not keen on working with Chance, either. It’s a means to an end and nothing more. So why is Chance living for every moment with Lily’s baggy sweat pants and messy ponytail? And why is Lily fighting an onslaught of butterflies in her belly every time Chance gives her that easy smile?
Maybe being back in Mint Springs isn’t so bad after all…
But Lily can’t change her past and some people are determined to make sure she never forgets it. Can she trust Chance to choose her?
Can even the most battered hearts be made to shine?
