McKinley’s dream of opening her own restaurant is one
building short of reality. So when a Chapel Springs resident
offers her beloved ancestral home as prize to the applicant

Contractor Cole Evans is confident, professional, and
swoon-worthy—but this former foster kid knows his life
could have turned out very differently. When Cole discovers
the contest, he believes his home for foster kids in
transition has found its saving grace. All he has to do is
convince the owner that a not-for-profit enterprise will be
good for the community.
When the eccentric philanthropist weighs the proposals, she
proposes an outlandish tie-breaker: PJ and Cole will share
the house for a year to see which idea works best. Now, with
Cole and the foster kids upstairs and PJ and the restaurant
