Maybell Parrish has always been a dreamer. Living with her head in the clouds has frankly felt preferable to dealing with reality, where life and work is harder than the coffee shop alternative universe she runs in her head. So when Maybell inherits a stately old Tennessee manor from her eccentric Great Aunt Violet, it’s as though a piece of her dreams has suddenly come true: it’s the perfect opportunity to make a fresh start.

But when she arrives at her new home, it seems her troubles have only just begun. Not only is the manor practically falling apart around her, but its handsome yet reclusive groundskeeper, Wesley Koehler, who lives in a cabin on the property, wants nothing to do with her. Worse still, Great Aunt Violet made them both co-inheritors of the property, and it turns out they have very different visions for its future.

Convincing the taciturn Wesley to stop avoiding her and compromise is a task more formidable than anything on Great Aunt Violet’s list. But when Maybell discovers that beneath his brooding exterior lies an anxiety that exceeds her own, she realizes they might have more in common than she ever dreamed. And as the two slowly begin to let down their guards, they just might learn that sometimes the smallest steps outside one’s comfort zone can lead to the greatest rewards.
