All Jacey Steele's life, she's focused on one thing, gymnastics. After missing the Olympic team because of an injury, and being shut out by her 'winning is everything' father, she's built a career as a top notch, award winning coach. When a serious student injury propels her to the outside of the gymnastics world, she finds herself broke and alone--until a bequest from a mysterious and unknown aunt takes her on an unexpected journey. Who was Aunt Winnie, and what does the equally mysterious and unknown Mr. Boudreaux have to do with it? Army veteran, Cole Boudreaux, has returned home a hero to Cardinal Point, Texas, but a few things went wrong with his homecoming. His fiancee cut him loose, and he lost his position as a police office because a wartime injury left him nearly deaf. Then, the woman who was like a mother to him dies suddenly. Cole knows God has a plan, and if he could settle Winnie's estate, and grow his budding security business, he just might figure out what it is. Winnie's niece isn't making it easy. She's rolled into town with a ton of baggage and secrets she's not willing to share. Why is Jacey so distant, and why is she so determined to not let him in?
