Poet Daisy Young believes that when life hands you lemons, eat chocolate and get on with it, but no amount of Whitman Samplers gets her mind off her drowned fiancé – until she flees from Nashville to a small town in East Tennessee’s mountains and becomes best friends with Luke Strann.
The last thing she’s looking for is love, and certainly not with Luke, who’s as opposite from Brody as Fleetwood Mac is from Prince. Still, he’s a poet, and she’s been itching to know someone who’ll read her poetry. When their physical attraction can’t be denied, their relationship transforms into a “no promises, no demands” love affair.
It’s easy for Daisy to accept. After all, memories of her fiancé rule her heart, and according to Luke’s Elvis-loving, Harley-riding friend, Raleigh, Luke has a back door woman named Allison. But the more fun she has with Luke—hiking mountains, shooting fireworks, meeting a mysterious, prophetic woman in a red satin dress—the more frustrated she is with their uncertain future.
She calls it quits. Her year-long lease is up. Should she give up hope and return to her family in Nashville?
Then a near-fatal accident brings about the truth of Luke’s attraction to Allison, and Daisy must make the decision of her life.
