Can a taste of love cure the scars of yesterday?
Single mother and baker Eden Lambert arrives in quaint Village Green looking for a home for herself and her 18-month-old son, Jake. Her warm welcome by her elderly hostess, Mary Jo Piermont, is offset by the cold disdain of Mary Jo's self-appointed protector, Joe Wolfe.
At first, the long-legged blonde and her kid look like trouble to Joe. Mary Jo saved the builder's life years ago, and he will do no less for the woman he considers a surrogate mother. But as he keeps an eye on the unwanted guests, Joe's suspicions soon become replaced by admiration and respect for Eden's resolve and dedication to her son. With his background of abuse and abandonment, Joe is aware of the dangers facing the vulnerable and wants better for Eden and Jake. He offers her a business arrangement--he'll build her a bakery, and she can run it.
As they join forces to start the bakery, can they overcome the scars of the past to find a recipe for love?
