One irrepressible city girl plus a by-the-numbers accountant = a tricky equation...
For city vet Isabella Passmore, the opportunity to pet-sit in the country knocks at the perfect time. Bring on that fresh air! But after three days of holiday bliss, Izzy is bored silly. If the air gets any cleaner, she'll start slinging mud. Then she gets offered work in the second-hand shop. Saved!
It's been years since Elliot Field's parents rolled out the red carpet, but Elliot only needs one day to learn that this welcome mat comes with strings. His parents' new business is sinking, and they expect him to fix their financial problems.
To prepare for the week from hell, he'll need a mug that's not steeped in bad memories, but nothing could prepare him for the employee he encounters at the second-hand shop.
For Izzy, pursuing Elliot is a most welcome diversion from walking another lap of town with the dog. For Elliot, their random encounters add up to the sum of much bigger things.
He's always been a numbers man and he's kept his heart locked away, but in irrepressible Izzy, is Elliot's number finally up?

What a story to revisit Chalk Hill again.
Izzy is on a holiday to Chalk Hill. Being a city girl, (even though she is a vet) is dog and house sitting for her friend Taylor. Izzy finds the quiet country area totally different to her usual busy and loud life.
Elliott is home visiting his family, who he feels don’t want him as part of their lives.
The two main characters met, when Izzy finds herself needing help after being thrust into country life without her realising it happened.
Add in family drama, dogs, chickens and a duck, and you have a story that allows the characters to find new ways to set the past free and help others without needing the attention.
