There is only one thing in life that professional pastry Chef Pricilla Westcott values more than baking and wine, and that’s honesty. A quality she soon learns that her marriage lacks when her husband runs off with their next door neighbor. Divorced and alone, Priscilla is determined to make changes in her life. She decides to approach her new goals like one of her beloved recipes. Surely with a little time, a dash of patience, and measured planning she can whip herself—and her life—back into shape. However, when a new—and utterly delicious—neighbor takes up residence in the house that ruined her marriage, Priscilla worries that her careful world will fold faster than a deflated soufflé. Trent Walker knows what he wants and his sweet, sassy neighbor is at the top of the list. He’s certain that the chemistry between them would be explosive, but Priscilla fears that an affair with him, however hot, could be a recipe for disaster.

As I was saying before, if you have ever sat down and listened to Elvis, you would know he sang a lot about love. Lyrics, like “let’s make a night to remember” or “love me tender, love me true,” blared in our household like a family soundtrack. So, when I was young, love was what I lived for. And at the age of seventeen, all girls know exactly what love is and that it is going to last forever. Surely Murphy’s Law was around as well and put in his two cents. 
Fourteen years ago. High school. Year of 2000. Girl meets boy. Boy asks out girl. Girl thinks being easy is the way to go, no thanks to Elvis, and gives boy her virginity. Boy and girl start to date and become high school sweethearts. They make plans for the future, defy their parents, jump the train to the next town over and get married at a Justice of the Peace. High school ends and both realize they have different dreams and only one has a college scholarship. Boy goes off to his chosen college while girl follows him because she is in love. Girl gets job to pay for local community college while boy has a full scholarship and attends a university. Four years fly by and before they know it, they are stuck in a routine: school, work, sleep, repeat. 
Time is such a funny thing in life. It keeps going, no matter what is happening around you. Time doesn’t stop to give us a chance to figure out what’s missing or wrong in our life or in the relationship we’re struggling in. So instead of taking time to stop and try to figure out how to fix it, we just continue to turn our backs to the problem, hoping it resolves itself. Therefore, instead of waving the white flag and going separate ways, college boy and girl move back to their hometown of Richmond, Ohio to start their careers. Girl gets her degree in culinary arts and a second degree in business, and envisions this great plan for how she’s going to open up her own bakery. Boy gets law degree and becomes somebody bigger and better than girl. Before you know it, boy is now a man and girl is now a woman and neither have anything really in common with the other. 
Well, except for the neighbor. In common means woman lives next to her while man is inside her… Literally.
