She expected to find a lot of old junk and sad memories. What she didn’t expect was handsome childhood friend Jackson Crawford. But the moment he walked up the steps of her grandmother’s porch she knew that he was exactly what she needed to get her through the days ahead.But things are different now for both Piper and Jackson. And while their friendship wants to take a turn towards the romantic, there might be too much of the unknown standing in the way. Will the details of the missing years quench the flames of the present moment? Or will Piper find home in the place she least expected?
