While Margaux Sullivan was presenting her highly praised M Atelier collection at New York City's Fashion Week, her husband of thirteen years cleaned out their bank account and disappeared. A week later the bank foreclosed on her apartment and business. Suddenly broke, betrayed and humiliated, Margaux returns home to the small, coastal town of Crescent Cove, CT, where she once knew love, joy and family - three things she's lost on her climb to fame. Margaux just wants to be left alone to nurse her wounded heart and spirit while she tries to rebuild her life, but friends and family have different plans for her. Nick Prescott left his job as a college professor to return home to care for his orphaned nephew Connor, taking the role of interim police chief in Crescent Cove. Just when he is finally settling in to his new role and accepting that he has returned to the town he never thought he would come back to, he stops Margaux for speeding on her way into town. Nick recognizes her immediately; she was one of the bright spots of his boyhood; the beautiful girl who summered at the beach and never noticed the "townie" boy who looked forward to seeing her return each year. Nick's no longer a boy, and he's no longer content to love her from afar. Margaux feels too vulnerable to let Nick and Connor into her life, but soon begins to find a forgotten place in her heart that wants to love again. When a chance to return to New York as a top designer threatens her new-found happiness, Margaux must make the most important decision of her life. Does she have the strength to let go of the past and grasp an uncertain future? Can two people who have so little in common find a way to become a family?
