Avery Blake has spent years getting by all on her own in a big house on the countryside. As a contractor, there’s not much room for emotion in her male-dominated profession, and she’s perfectly content to keep people out of her private life, too.
After watching her elderly neighbor, Nora, be torn away from her long-time lover by heartless relatives, Avery has seen what it’s like to love and to lose, and she’d rather skip the whole thing and focus on work (and the occasional meaningless fling) instead.
Some relationships can be fixed with a little breathing room… and some are too far gone.

When a pipe bursts on her first night in the house, Hannah has no choice but to run across the street and beg for help from Avery.
The rest, as they say, is history…
