New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Violet Duke debuts an emotional series about letting go, starting over, and trusting in the redemptive power of love.
Emma Stevens made a fresh start in the small town of Juniper Hills, but she still lives with the guilt of an impossible choice from her past: saving her sister — but leaving her stepbrother behind — in a fire that destroyed their home. The boy next door may have dragged them to safety, but he also caused the accidental fire that devastated her family.
Even though Jake Rowan hadn’t been able to save Emma’s brother that fateful night fourteen years ago, he takes some comfort in knowing he was able to save his own brother. By taking the fall for the fire, Jake agreed to a sentencing that enabled him to protect his older brother’s future…but it cost him the girl of his dreams.
Now Jake finds himself on Emma’s doorstep once again. Not to save her life this time, but to repair it. And more importantly, her heart, if she’ll let him.

When she isn’t feeding her book-a-day addiction, Violet enjoys doing far too many things without checking the directions first (often with outrageous power tools she has no business operating), and cooking impossible-to-replicate ‘special edition’ dishes that laugh in the face of recipes. She lives in Hawai’i with her kids (Violet & Duke) and Mr. Violet Duke (their ringleader), with a PJs-and-rubber-slippers work dress code she takes very seriously.
