Will the Merry Widow bring them together … or destroy them?
A year after their relationship collapsed because of a generous gesture, Deke and Danielle are once more stuck with a house they don’t want – a B and B called The Merry Widow — and with each other.
Danielle is surprised when her elderly friend leaves her treasured Victorian house in equal shares to Danielle and the man she’s casually dating. But Deke is stunned and horrified at what he sees as a matchmaking plot – and Danielle is furious that he thinks she’s part of a scheme to trap him into marriage.
They agree to sell the house to a couple who wants to turn it into a bed and breakfast – a quick and private deal that lets them put the whole mess behind them.
Until the new owners walk out on their purchase contract, leaving Deke and Danielle stuck with The Merry Widow. Now they have a house they can’t sell, a business they can’t close, and no idea when they’ll be free.
