Painted Melodies
by Alexa Aston

Welcome to Lost Creek Texas, a small town deep in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, where people come seeking new opportunities and a chance to reinvent themselves---and maybe even find love.

A divorced man seeking a new beginning. A woman driven by her art. A new beginning which brings them together...

Dax Tennyson was a Dallas accountant, eager to start a family with his wife. When he learns she's lied about everything, he ditches both his wife and the conventional lifestyle he'd adopted for her. Following his heart, Dax opens a coffeehouse on the square in Lost Creek, a small town in the Texas Hill Country, and is ready to start a band, hoping they can play weekend gigs.

Ivy Hart's passion is painting. To pay the bills, though, she takes a position as the assistant manager of Houston art gallery, soon finding she does all her boss' work and her own for less than half his salary. Tired of having no free time to pursue her own art, Ivy quits and returns home to Lost Creek. She becomes head of the tasting room at Lost Creek Winery, her family's successful business.

Finding inspiration in the surrounding landscape, Ivy volunteers to paint a mural on a wall of the town square, hoping to showcase her talent. While painting it, she meets Dax, who is determined to discover more about the enigmatic artist behind the mural. The couple bonds over their shared pursuit of artistic dreams, even more so after Dax surprises Ivy by arranging a live music and art fusion event at his coffeehouse. Local musicians and artists are invited to exhibit their talents, and the joint venture becomes a popular affair in the community, mixing the magic of music with art as Dax takes to the stage, singing original songs he has written.

Ivy's incorporates elements of the Hill Country and nature into her paintings, capturing the essence of the region. As her reputation grows, an offer to exhibit her work in a larger venue causes her to face a decision regarding her career and her relationship with Dax.

Will Ivy leave everything behind--- including her budding romance with Dax--- to pursue an art career beyond Lost Creek?
