After a one-night stand with a handsome stranger, Marley Halligan has accepted her life for what it is - a hot mess. Working as an event planner in New York City and being a single mother to her twins, Marley's life was chaotic enough. She never imagined that she'd run into the father of her children in the small town of Quimby Grove, Pennsylvania.
Max Quinn had been determined to find the gorgeous blond that captured his attention on the beach all those years ago. She was sassy, beautiful, and lit something within him. He knew that she was the one. The only problem was, he didn't know anything about her - not even her name. But everything changes whenever he spots her from across the room at his best friend's wedding. Determined to get her to stay in town, he will do anything for another shot with the one that got away.
As if navigating parenthood together wasn't difficult enough, an unusual string of crimes are committed in Quimby Grove, each worse than the one before it, with Marley landing smack dab in the middle of them all.
Will Marley and Max be able to reignite their spark and solidify their family roots before the town's tragedies tear them apart? Or are they destined to go their separate ways?
