Adrift for years since her partner's death and her son's estrangement, Lenny Barclay isn't sure what she wants.
Her friends despair of cheering her up. Even making her mayor of their idyllic Colorado mountain town doesn't awaken the joyous, passionate Lenny they once knew.
But the arrival of the corporate planners from the Wilderness Campaign brings back some of Lenny's fire.
They already act like they own the place, including the arrogant Sloane McHenry.
Pinedale--and her fractured family--does not need a Fortune 500 fix.
Sloane is always hunting for the complete package and she's got it in Pinedale.
The mayor is a spineless pushover, the site only holds a dilapidated shop owned by the aforementioned mayor and Sloane has a secret weapon that will prove useful should she meet resistance.
This project's not just about profit, either, for reasons she can't explain--not even to herself.
