Reluctant restauranteur, Keely Granger, wants nothing more than to escape the small town she’s lived in her whole life, but her guilt and family responsibilities keep her firmly entrenched in Comfort Crossing, Mississippi.
Lonely photojournalist, Hunt Robichaux, takes a break from his life-is-short, chase-after-your-dreams lifestyle and returns home to help his recently widowed sister and his nephews. But every responsibility he’s ever taken on ends in disaster, so he’s determined to leave before anyone starts to depend on him and gets hurt.
As Keely and Hunt’s relationship cook up to a more-than-childhood-friends level, Hunt has to decide if he's been chasing his dreams in the wrong part of the world. But as secrets from their past begin to unravel, Keely reels from the knowledge that everything she’s believed to be true is all a lie. A disaster — and the truth — threaten to tear them apart forever.
