About the book….


Just when her life is progressing flawlessly, professional mediator Carly Stone is blindsided by the fact that her brand new husband is bedding down with someone else.

She returns to her historic hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, only to discover that everything has changed in less than a year. Her wacky grandmother has moved into the family home, her celebrity sister shows up toting three kids and a growling poodle, and a land developer is erecting a building supply superstore that will surely force her Mamma and Daddy’s business to shut down. And to complicate matters, she is outrageously attracted to a construction worker, when she should be figuring out how to save her marriage.


Carly has always preferred conciliation to conflict, but is it time to change? Should she fight to save the family business? Will she go for the handsome stranger who puts every one of her five senses on alert?

“A story that has it all — betrayal, strong family ties, murder, and true love — portrayed in a witty, down-home style with characters that linger long after you put down the book!”
NY Times best-selling author of Hot Shot — Charlotte Hughes
