She was looking for something new, 

but found forever instead.


When a forty-something bougie divorcée crosses paths with a hot, small-town sheriff, sparks are bound to fly. Vanessa Jared is doing her best to define her future and herself. She doesn’t have time for a sexy, single, and devastatingly handsome sheriff who looks too tempting in his uniform for Vanessa’s own good.


The universe doesn’t seem to understand this, however, and continues to put her right in Michael’s path.  Soon, Vanessa will come to realize that maybe running away from Michael and all he has to offer isn’t the way to figure out what her future holds. Perhaps, the best way to get what she wants is to walk directly into his arms.
