In a charming Massachusetts town, Lily Perfect, a budding, savvy entrepreneur has her sights set on running her own boutique filled with handmade creations.

Alan Perry isn't fooled by Lily's apparent disinterest. He knows there's more to her than just her handbags. She has secrets, and he's determined to reveal them...before she can reveal his. Little does Alan know, he may have just met his match.
