Florist Ivy Birch has always enjoyed life's simple pleasures. But small town living has some drawbacks, especially when it seems that everyone is getting married...except her. Determined to throw herself into her business and put that random, fleeting, wonderful kiss with her lifelong crush out of her mind for good, her comfortable routine is shaken up when he unexpectedly returns to town. Still recovering from the events that cost him his position at a world-renowned hospital, Brett Hastings knows better than to let anything--or anyone--jeopardize his medical career again. But when he's asked to partner with Ivy to oversee the hospital's annual fundraiser, the memory of one blissful night starts to feel like anything but a mistake. Soon, he's beginning to question all his reasons for ever leaving Briar Creek. Staying will cost him the dream job he's worked years for, but leaving could cost him his heart.
