Alexis McCord seizes the opportunity to escape with her son when her abusive boyfriend is arrested. She and 5-year-old Chance begin building a life in the tiny Sandy Reach, Washington, and dreaming of becoming a baker with her own shop.
For Fletcher Lambert, distraught after the death of his wife and baby daughter, Sandy Reach is a handy place to escape his memories, his law office responsibilities, and his large, well-intentioned but intrusive family, who want him to move on. He’s not sure that will ever happen.
Then Fletcher meets Chance. When he learns that the waitress serving him is the boy’s mother, sparks fly in spite of his intentions never to get close to a woman again. Lexi feels them, too, but her mistrust of men forces her to ignore Chance when he declares that Fletcher would make the perfect dad. After all, who listens to a five-year-old in the midst of all this grown-up angst?
