Cat Cartwright's sixth sense tells her there are storms brewing in her peaceful English village. A stranger is in town, one that she does not trust despite her attraction to him. He is also the estranged father of Luca, the young boy she looks after for one of her closest friends. As the handsome, irritable New Yorker is gradually accepted into the community, Cat has no choice but to watch the strengthening bond between father and son, knowing that Max O'Donnell is not all he seems.
Meanwhile, Max is being harassed by a persistent ghost, imploring him to face the lie he has been living since 9/11. When the spirit infiltrates Cat and Luca's dreams as well, it is only a matter of time before Max's carefully reconstructed persona is destroyed. He has to choose between drowning his problem in drink, as he has so often before, or face the truth and risk losing everyone he cares for.
And Cat has to learn how to accept her losses and past mistakes in order to move on with her life. Finding love was not part of the plan, especially with a man who is more flawed than she is.
A tale of ghosts, redemption, and romance between two very unlikely people.
