No matter how bad things get, they can always get worse…
No matter how bad things get, they can always get worse… When Sam MacLeod’s drunken girlfriend smashes into Olivia’s beloved classic car, she never expects that she’ll see him again.
At 30, Olivia Lewis’s personal life is a mess. Dumped by her fiancé without so much as an explanation, she’s surprised that she’s relieved. Olivia’s professional life is a disaster too. Although her partners in her law firm push her out, she’s determined that she won’t allow them to steal her business.
When the beloved aunt who raised her and her sister dies, Olivia returns to her childhood home at Coal River Bay. She wishes that she’d returned more often when Aunt Jenny was alive, but she’s ready for a slower pace of life now.
Sam suddenly reappears in Olivia’s life. He’s rented the house next to hers. At first, she doesn’t recognize him. She certainly doesn’t trust him, and is uncomfortably aware that she’s attracted to him.
She can’t allow that.
Will Olivia ever wake up and realize that Sam is not only her best friend, but also her soulmate?
