When the rug is pulled out from her at a high-powered New York job and she’s blindsided by her longtime boyfriend, Oliva’s Gale is almost relieved to be called to help out at her family’s bakery in Sugar Lake, Georgia.
At Goode ‘N Sweet bakery, Olivia once again has a chance to satisfy her pie-making hobby while taking time to figure out the next steps to get her life back on track. And all would go to plan if she weren’t being distracted by the boy, now a full-grown man from her past next door who’s making it oh so hard to focus on the business at hand…
This time Clayton Morris wants to get it right. A single dad and firefighter, he’s trying hard to fix past mistakes. He thought for sure that letting Eva go when he did all those years ago was the right thing but, now seeing her again he’s not so sure. Though he knows he has nothing to offer compared to the life Olivia is used to, still, he can’t help but offer all he has and risk his fragile heart being crushed by her all too-capable hands.

Putting her acting career and life in New York on hold, Alexandrea Gale did what she had to, helping with her family’s bakery, Goode N’ Sweet. She even surprised herself, enjoying pitching in and giving the bakery a fresh new look with modern updates, bringing it into the 21st century. Now her skills have caught the eye of a local businesswoman and she’s hired Alex to help renovate the local movie theater, a job that is exhilarating to her but unfortunately both infuriating and a total waste of money to the proprietress’s grandson who would like to sell the old money pit.
Kellen Kilborn feels that selling the theater is the only way to do right by the grandmother who helped raise him. As the new head of the family real estate arm, he can’t take a risk on Alexandrea’s wild ideas-but he also can’t walk away from her warm heart and free spirit. As gut-wrenching choices threaten to rip them apart, can they find a way to turn both their visions into one sweet future?
