Lovey, a 100-year-old midwife, claims she is related to Dr. Katie Cook, the new doctor in town. Katie is intrigued and looks forward to exploring the possibilities of this new relationship and learning more of her family history. Hopefully, Lovey's health won't interfere with this plan as they await her big birthday celebration on New Year's Eve.

Bobby Lane has declared his love for Katie but there are new complications in their budding relationship stemming from his role as the Sheriff of Claiborne County. He has just arrested his ex-wife on drug charges and is searching for a missing mother and child who disappeared on Christmas Day.

Although this series continues with Lovey and her young friends from Book 1 in the Clinch Mountain series, it is also a stand-alone novel. There are plenty of new secrets and complications reveled that may upend Katie's life and keep the couple apart.
