Photographer Suzanne Paris is an expert at running away. On her own since the age of fourteen, her specialty is navigating life’s twists and turns without staying in any place too long. Trying to outrun trouble from her ex-fiancé Anthony deSalvo, she hops off an Atlanta bound bus and lands in the tiny town of Walton, Georgia. Upon her arrival, she meets Mayor Joe Warner, a widower with six children by his side trying to heal the wounds from a broken heart.
Needing a place to stay, Suzanne quickly becomes entwined with Joe and his extended family. Sparks fly between these two lost souls, but neither is willing to take a chance on getting hurt. In order to make ends meet, Suzanne takes a part-time job at Joe’s Aunt Lucinda’s lingerie shop just until she comes up with a plan. What she doesn’t expect is to fall in love with this charming town causing her to question whether she can ever leave.
