Abstract:

A chance to run a B & B in snowy, remote Vermont--it's an offer Kira Danner can't resist after six soul-crushing years of working as a lawyer in Florida. As Kira and her husband, Peter, step into a brand new life, she quells her fears about living with the B & B's co-owners: Peter's sexy, irresponsible brother Rand, and Rand's wife, Alyssa ... who is essentially a stranger. For her part, Alyssa sees taking over the B & B as the latest in a string of adventures. Plus, a quiet place might help her recover from the news that she can't bear children. But the idyllic town proves to be anything but serene.
