Bestselling author Wendy Markham writes a touching yet hilarious romance about love found the second time around in the suburbs.
When Meg Addams lived in Glenhaven Park as a teenager, she couldn't wait to leave. But after 15 years, a Broadway career, a marriage, a daughter and a divorce she can't wait to get back. Beaten to the lead of a hot new musical by a hotter and newer starlet, Meg packs up her daughter and goes home. She's shocked to see the small town she remembers is now full of 'Yummy Mummies', olive bars, yoga studios and diners serving sushi but even more unsettling is that the only place Meg can afford is the town's haunted house! Sam Rooney can't believe someone else is moving in next door and the last thing he wants is to get involved - as a widower with two children, a bunch of students and a soccer team counting on him, he has enough on his plate already. But when it turns out that the beauty next door is Meg from high school, he softens a little. As two Glenhaven natives in a sea of transplants, why not be neighbourly? Between the soccer team, the school play and a growing closeness between their families, Sam and Meg's lives become closely intertwined. But can true love blossom between a newfound soccer mom and the sexy soccer coach?
