When pharmacist Janet Webber relocates to the agricultural heart of California for a new job, she is not at all certain that she has made the right decision. Her love life is in bad shape, and the weekly business travel now required of her isn’t helping. But when Janet meets walnut farmer Gail Lawrence at a housewarming party, Janet decides that her love life may be turning in the right direction. Soon Janet finds herself inspired by the abundance of local crops and begins cooking and baking to escape the stress of her work. When Janet’s baked goods are well received in the community, she allows herself to dream of starting her own business. With Gail’s encouragement—and her walnuts—anything seems possible. But will Gail’s reluctance to trust another woman again push the two of them apart before they can even get started?
