Alissa loves her new job as a travel agent in Pasadena —the chance to start over. But shortly after her arrival, an abrupt meeting with a man at her favorite espresso shop leaves her wondering if all men in California are rude and arrogant. Just like the ones she’s been hurt by recently. “This guy has to go,” she tells herself.
But Alissa soon learns that man is none other than Brad Phillips, her new neighbor. And the “coincidences” don’t stop there. Alissa’s and Brad’s lives keep intertwining in extraordinary ways. Then she ends up on a road trip with Brad—a trip that holds one disaster after another! Alissa’s only solace is their destination: charming Glenbrooke , Oregon —a place so warm and friendly it might just reopen her shielded heart.
