By chance, he runs into his high school sweetheart, never expecting the same old yearnings to return with one "How are ya?" embrace. Has their unanticipated meeting arrived at the perfect time, or has years apart put an end to what should've been years ago?

Beth Marconi arrives home to help care for her ailing father. In town, she inadvertently runs into her first love—the cowboy she nearly married after graduation. Sparks ignite before they say hello, but how do they start over when life has left them so bruised? When her ex comes to town, she's forced to explain the secret surrounding her marriage. Is Jake the kind of man who will understand, or will he revert to the hell-raiser he had become when Beth left thirteen years ago?

Filled with both anguish and hope at Christmastime, a grieving little boy and two lonely hearts pursue a second chance. Jake and Beth seek to work with what they have today instead of living in yesterday's memories. Forever love and second chances are possible. Right?
