Jordan returns to Walkers Way to follow his dream of purchasing the Walker timber mill. But Holly doesn't think her heart will survive the impact when she sets eyes on him. After all, they were childhood sweethearts, and it continued until the day he left town almost six years ago.
Holly is fearful he will discover a secret she's hidden, and avoiding him in a small town is impossible, especially with a persistent matchmaking father on the loose.
Her father and Jordan organise a contract for the sale of the mill. When Holly discovers their true intentions, she is furious. She didn't spend every Saturday working at the mill and doing the books for the last ten years for nothing. That mill was promised to her by her late grandfather.
When she wakes to find her son missing, her world crumbles. A second crime follows, and Jordan puts the mill on hold and takes on one last case before he resigns from the police force.
Despite their differences of opinion and the discovery of something he never thought possible, Jordan is now on a mission, and that is to have Holly permanently in his life.
