Jenny Majesky is devastated when she loses everything in a house fire. But among the ashes she finds an unusual treasure hidden amid her grandfather's belongings, one that starts her on a path toward a life that she never imagined.
The Winter Lodge, a remote cabin on the shores of Willow Lake, becomes a safe refuge for Jenny, where she and local police chief Rourke McKnight try to sort out the mysteries revealed by the fire. But when a blizzard traps them together, Jenny, accustomed to the safe predictability of running the family bakery, suddenly doesn't feel so secure. For even as Rourke shelters her from the storm outside, she knows her heart is at risk. Now following her dreams might mean walking away from her one chance at love.
