Extroverted Emily Holcomb is a star contestant on a reality TV cooking show. At the same time, the hot-shot lawyer is about to make partner—if she can close a mammoth real estate deal in tiny Black Duck, West Virginia. Alas, Liam Thomas—Black Duck’s taciturn mayor—is determined to protect his town from invading corporate interests.
Sure, opposites attract, even during the coronavirus epidemic. But Emily is a fish out of water in small town Black Duck. And Liam hates everything about Emily’s busy attorney life in Washington DC.
Soon, Emily and Liam are tested by her scheming boss, his challenging daughter, and an unchecked horde of ruthless paparazzi. With their relationship on trial, how do Emily and Liam win their case?
