Following several failed relationships and a disastrous fifteen-year marriage, Maggie Langham finds herself widowed. After the funeral, all she has left are memories and a nagging question: Where should she go from here?
With nothing tying her down, Maggie decides to start over—sans men. She puts her condo on the market with the help of Judy Cole, a realtor friend, and she moves to the island of Kauai, where she plans to purchase a bed-and-breakfast. While viewing properties, she meets the manager of the hotel where she’s staying. Paul Sinclair, a dashing Scotsman, is smitten with Maggie, but she keeps him at arm’s length. It seems Judy knew Paul once, and Maggie suspects she has been set up. As she begins to build her new life in Hawaii, Maggie encounters a former lover who—along with an unexpected visit from her daughter, Brooke—complicates the process. Events from the past intrude on Maggie’s newfound peace, forcing her to make decisions that will impact her future.
In this novel, a newly widowed woman relocates to Hawaii to start her life over, encountering past love and new romance along the way.
