Three years ago Brenna Fox came home to River Run from college to find her parents dead and her younger sister Lisa shot in her hip as her father apparently lost his mind. Needing money for her sibling’s surgery, Brenna accepts Vivian Rothchild’s heartbreaking offer of cash if she, accompanied by her sibling, leaves town. Brenna relocates to Hollow Ridge, North Carolina where she opened up the Sleepy Hollow Inn catering to skiers with the help of Geraldine Spencer; and read the news on the rising banking career of Vivian’s son, her former fiancé Taylor.

When Taylor’s car breaks down in Sleepy Hollow, he and his new fiancée Carol Holland take a room at Brenna’s establishment. Whereas Lisa is exuberant that her hero finally came for them, Taylor and Brenna are miserable as he believes she left town with another man and she knows she cannot reveal his mom’s duplicity or that will void their deal.

This is an entertaining second chance at love romance with a strong cast sacrificing their well-being for others; even Vivian did what she did out of love for her son though she learns “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” Character-driven, Carol’s grandmother explains the plot best with her mantra that “there is a thin line between love and hate.”
