Christina Forrester is starting over. After a financial scandal sent her ex-husband to prison, sheâ€™s left raising her young son without any of the comforts of their old life. Budgets, coupons, lawn careâ€”you name it, sheâ€™s learning to do it all on her own. Well, almost on her ownâ€”sheâ€™d be lost without Gail Broughton, the kind widow across the street. But when Gailâ€™s son comes home, Christinaâ€™s vow to never trust a man again is put to the test.
Will Broughton left town because he was tired of being â€śthat poor manâ€ť who lost his wife and unborn child in a tragic accident. But years have passed and, with his dad gone and his mom alone, itâ€™s time to go home. Only his motherâ€™s not alone. Sheâ€™s taken Christina under her wing, and the beautiful and determined single mother awakens something in Will he thought was buried forever.
As Will and Christina are forced to spend more time together, feelings that are more than neighborly grow between them. And with Christmas coming and a child filling both houses with holiday cheer, it becomes nearly impossible not to embrace the joyâ€”and the loveâ€”in their lives.
