Kit s Adamem se po patnácti letech manželství rozešli. Kit ztratila svou lásku, nejlepšího kamaráda i vlastní identitu. Ale rok po rozvodu se zdá, že se její život zase dostal do správných kolejí – žije v příjemném městečku, má příjemnou práci, dvě báječné děti i čas na jógu s kamarádkami. Díky sousedce, starostlivé Edii, která se pro ni stala náhradní matkou a jejím dětem babičkou, si Kit našla práci jako asistentka slavného spisovatele Roberta McClora. Přitažlivého šedesátníka s pohnutým osudem, o kterém se říká, že se straní lidí. Jenomže potom ho přemluví, aby uspořádal autorské čtení v místním knihkupectví. A tam se s ním seznámí její instruktorka jógy Tracy – o které kupodivu spoustu věcí kamarádky nevědí. Tracy ji také seznámí se Stevem – mužem přímo dokonalým. Začíná to vypadat, že se všechno daří, dokud se Kit najednou u dveří neobjeví sestra, o jejíž existenci neměla ani ponětí. Sestra, která pořádně zamotá životy všech kolem. A aby toho nebylo málo, ukazuje se, že ani Steve nebude tak dokonalý, jak se na první pohled zdálo. Je ovšem možné, že by měl něco společného s tajemstvími, která před všemi ukrývá Tracy? A je možné nalézt ztracené štěstí a prožít novou sezonu života přece jen úplně jinak?

Falling


Eight years ago, Emma Montague left behind the strict confines of her upper-crust English life - and rather dull boyfriend - and moved to New York City, where she immediately found success in the world of finance. But her soulless, cut-throat, all-consuming job has only led to another life she didn't want. Answering an online ad, Emma finds a tiny beach cottage to rent in the small town of Westport, Connecticut. It needs work - lots of work. But it's the perfect project to satisfy Emma's passion for interior design and gardening, if her new landlord, Dominic, is agreeable to the small changes she yearns to make. To Emma, Dominic is also something of a fixer-upper. A local handyman with a six-year-old son, he's a world away from the men she should be interested in, but he's comfortable in his own skin, confident, quiet and kind. Slowly, over a shared garden, time spent with his son and late-night conversations, Emma finds herself falling for Dominic. From friends to lovers happens as naturally as the changing seasons. But laying down roots doesn't come easily when two lives as different as theirs merge into one. And Emma will realize that the seeds of happiness must be nurtured and cherished to grow into something strong enough to shelter all their hopes and dreams ...
