He needs a nanny to care for Marie so he can keep up with the demands of his busy job at Silver Creek—and Natalie Ringold is a godsend. She can cook, she cleans, Marie loves her—and she just so happens to be the long-time girlfriend that Owen hasn’t made amends with. Yet.
Married and divorced, Natalie teaches ballet at the dance studio in Gold Valley, but she never auditioned for the professional company the way she dreamed of doing. With Owen back, she realizes all the opportunities she missed out on when he left all those years ago—including a future with him. Can they mend broken bridges in order to have a second chance at love?

So she takes a six-month sabbatical from her high-stress job as a pediatric nurse, hops on a bus with a ticket to Bride, and dances around the statue of Ellora Shepherd the very night she arrives. The next day, she meets with the matchmaker and then meets her grandson, Gavin Redd. He's handsome, he's hardworking, and he's a cowboy. But is he an Aquarius too? Navy's not making a move until she knows for sure.
Gavin hates everything about the legend of Bride. The statue. The stupid bus station. The blondes who come to town believing in such ridiculous things. As if a silly dance and a simple visit with his eighty-three-year-old grandmother are going to help a woman find a man.
So maybe he's had his heart broken a time or two. Or five. Or maybe he's too focused on caring for his grandparents to date. Or maybe, just maybe, he needs a little bit of the Bride magic to make him realize that just because Navy believes in the legends he hates doesn't mean she's not the one for him. Can Gavin and Navy navigate their differences to discover they could be a perfect match?
He'd just go if it weren't for beautiful Bonnie Sherman, who roped his heart the first time he saw her. Bonnie's got thick ties to Island Park as her four-year-old son is buried there. She finds herself at the cemetery more often than not, praying for peace, but as she starts to lean more on Sam, she wonders if she can leave Vermont and find a happier future somewhere else, with someone else.
Do Sam and Bonnie have the faith to find comfort in each other instead of in the people who've already passed?
