It's always enjoyable to visit Dare Valley and all it's characters. Chase Parker, Evan Michael's best friend and business partner, is visiting from Northern Virginia to discuss a very important fund raiser coming up. But a skiing accident changes all that.
Moira Hale is the new director of the Artemis Institute of Innovations, a job she loves. She's a bit uncomfortable after getting off on the wrong foot with Chase -- he dislikes some of the people she is considering inviting, even though Evan agrees with her. All of that is pushed aside when Chase has a skiing accident, breaks his leg and arm and has a severe concussion. He will be staying in Dare Valley for the time it takes him to recover and he's not happy, especially with a spark of attraction between he and Moira. Chase "Didn't date. He made deals. Ran a corporate empire." He sees women that serve as decorations on his arm. Certainly not strong, intelligent corporate types like Moira. But she is always there for him, at the hospital, at the home he is temporarily living in, and they find the attraction is mutual. They both decide that since technically they don't work together, it's only a matter of time till he returns to Virginia, they might as well explore their feelings and enjoy the time they have. Chase is angry, in pain, and despises feeling helpless, but Moira stays by his side doing her best to keep him healing and resting. The "attraction" turns into a whole lot more.
Arthur Hale is at the center of this story, and does his best to keep his family in line. A family that is growing by leaps and bounds. A romantic small town story that will keep you turning pages.
