Welcome to Pecan Valley, where the town may be small but the townspeople will always lend a helping hand or a shoulder to lean on. Where good times, good humor, and good people will always lead to happily ever after.

Life for Felicity, and her teen children, is finally back on track. After her divorce, she wasn’t sure if her sweet family would ever be the same. But things are good––right up until her ex’s spirited toddler lands on Felicity’s doorstep. If life’s going to throw lemons at her, thank God she has her best friend, Graham, to help her make lemonade out of them. How did she never notice how helpful and kind he was?

Graham is still recovering from his wife’s death years ago and trying to help his teen daughter get her life together. Who is he kidding? His daughter hates him. Forget life giving him a few lemons––he’s got the entire lemon tree. So when Felicity suggests they join forces and help each other, he’s all in. Next thing he knows, he’s building cribs and cleaning spit-up and trying hard not to kiss his best friend.

Too bad their timing couldn’t be worse…
