The Cottage in Maple Hill
“Inspiration doesn’t always come to you, child. Sometimes, you have to go out and find it.”
Liza Blackburn had long ago given up on being an artist as life took precedence over dreams. When her beloved grandmother passes away, she leaves Liza a generous, life-changing inheritance. Except it comes with a catch. One that takes her out of her comfort zone and drops her in a remote cottage in rural Ohio. She has one goal—survive the year and get back home.
Derrick Lowe’s life is simple, and he likes it that way. The last thing he wants to deal with is the hot mess granddaughter of his adopted grandmother moving in next door. When she does, he pushes his wants to the side and embraces his sense of duty. It is only a year after all. But a lot can change in a year as Liza learns that home is relative, and Derrick finds his life might need a little messiness, after all.
