Mike Foster just inherited a bundle.
In this case, the bundle is his bubbly, eight-month-old half brother Brian.
A successful restaurateur, Mike came to Vermont's Serenity Valley and built his life out of nothing. Now, his estranged father has left him an inheritance that will turn his carefully organized life upside down. But that's nothing compared to what Allie Hendericks is doing to his heart.
The spunky teen Mike hired years ago has bloomed into a lovely young woman he can't ignore. On a break from med school, Allie graciously helps care for Brian. She fits so effortlessly into their lives that Mike can't believe she'll be leaving them both behind come next semester. He has to find a way to prove to her that their makeshift family is the greatest gift he's ever received, and that she's the only one who can make it complete.
