Widowed family doctor Abbie Ashby enjoys her work in the Lake District, though it's hectic in the summer because of all the tourists. Hiring another physician to help out is sensible-until Matt Carrig makes her feel things she hasn't felt in a very long time.

Still, Matt is intent on leaving her. How much can she risk her heart?
