Following the death of her best friend, Michelle Taylor changes her life. She returns to her maiden name, sells her specialty food store and moves back home with her two boys, focusing her energy on refurbishing an old farmhouse. A chance encounter at a local barbecue restaurant lands her the perfect contractor. Not only is he qualified for the job, but he’s the first man in a long time to make her flustered and tingly. During the renovation, she struggles to keep their relationship strictly professional.
