Caroline Moore’s stay in New Hope, Nebraska, was supposed to be temporary. Come in. Run the town’s luxury hotel in the owner’s absence. Leave. Exactly the way Caroline liked it. After the tragic deaths of her husband and daughter, Caroline never stayed anywhere very long. She was a woman scarred and haunted and on the prowl, moving from place to place, searching for something. For someone. But Caroline is in for a surprise because ordinary little New Hope and its citizens are anything but ordinary. Ambitious, orderly, progressive, and hard-working, yes – a lot like Caroline herself, in fact – but definitely not ordinary. There could be a future waiting for Caroline in New Hope. Once she puts “paid in full” on her past.
