A ramshackle cabin by the lake, a haven for people at the crossroads of their lives.
She wasn’t looking for romance.
A single mother for the past ten years, Maddie’s been too busy for love, and too busy trying to make ends meet to jump start her sagging photography career.
When her daughter goes to live with her father for the summer, Maddie embraces the unexpected freedom and accepts the offer of the first solo show of her moody, black and white photographs.
Leaving Seattle and the safety of her job at an upscale art gallery, she heads to Washington State’s Majestic Lake and rents a rustic cabin on the lake where she finds the inspiration she needs and sets up her dark room.
A traumatic childhood has left her a loner. She’s always felt safer that way. But maintaining her distance is almost impossible in a town like Fortune Bay. Despite her best efforts, she slowly realizes that this is the life she’s always wished for but never thought she could have: inspiration, real friends, and the man and family of her dreams.
But now, when success and happiness beckon, Maddie’s not sure whether to take the chance, or if it will all blow up in her face when the people of Fortune Bay discover who she really is.
