Being a legal secretary is not exactly Jana Barrowman's dream job, so when recently widowed Alex Steadman contacts her about the résumé she sent in more than a year ago with a job offer for a creative consultant position, she puts some serious thought into accepting it. The problem is, if she takes the new job, she will have to move to another state and leave her mom and dad behind. But when Jana determines that the move can help her get away from Brad-the overly adoring man in her life who she really doesn't have any feelings for-she decides to go.
When Jana arrives for her new adventure, both Alex and his young daughter, Elise, are easily enamored with her-as is Jeff, the ward member who becomes Jana's first date in her new town. However, Jana is not so sure about her feelings for any of them. And as she works side by side with Alex to transform a shabby house into a charming boutique, it becomes clear to her that Alex wants more than a friendship. Though Jana resists, she knows she has to work out her confusion before she loses everything that is becoming so dear to her. Will she be able to come to terms with the fact that Alex's deceased wife, Vanessa, will always be a big part of his life? Can differing religious convictions and other complications fit at a table for two?.
