But when his father has a stroke, guilt and duty drive him home, and nothing is as he remembersfrom the run-down ranch to Lainey Sullivan, who is all grown up now. And darn if he cant seem to stay away. Laineys late grandma left her two things: the family diner and a deep-seated mistrust of cowboys. So when Tyler quietly rides back into town looking better than hot apple pie, she knows shes in trouble. But she owes his dad everything, and shes determined to show Ty what it means to be part of a small town...and part of a family. Laineys courage pushes Ty to want to make Wishing River into a home againtogether. But one of them is harboring a secret that could change everything.
