Three talented women brought together by a man's love…
When Rose Macklin is asked to help Alec Thurston, the one man she's ever truly loved, by coming to Palm Desert, California, she doesn't hesitate. He's dying of cancer and needs her help in overseeing the sale of his hotel, The Desert Sage Inn, to another hotel group. With her marketing skill and as the owner of a very successful blog, she's his perfect choice to make the sale a smooth transition while maintaining the reputation of the upscale property. She arrives to find two other women summoned to help Alec. Lily Weaver was once Alec's assistant, and Willow Sanchez was like a daughter to him. They join forces to help him, lovingly accepting his nickname for them—the Desert Flowers, similar to the well-known Charlie's Angels.
When Rose is assigned to work alongside Hank Bowers, an independent consultant to the hotel company's team, she shudders at his reputation as an outgoing guy who always uses sports analogies and is certain they won't get along. But Alec counsels her to give Hank a chance and, later, as they work together as a team, Rose is left to wonder if falling for one another is part of Alec's secret plan even if one of Hank's grown daughters fights the idea.
A series for those who love stories about strong women facing challenges and finding love and happiness along the way.
