"There is always a pleasure in unravelling a mystery, in catching at the gossamer clue which will guide to certainty." 19th century author Elizabeth Gaskell

In 1901...Lilly Galloway has lived and worked at her half-sister's hotel since her parents died, and her pies and biscuits bring in customers from miles around. She doesn't mind at all that one burly lumberjack, Elan "Moose" Lamoureaux, seems to find a lot of excuses to spend time helping out at the hotel. But when the logging camp's cook disappears, and evidence suggests Moose is involved, Lilly must decide whether God is calling her to pull up roots and move to the city, or to blaze a new trail forward with the man she loves.

Today... Elliott Lansing agrees to keep his grandmother's failing B&B up and running while she takes an extended vacation. Quickly realizing that he's not equipped to run an inn, much less help it thrive in a village that isn't exactly a tourist destination, he enlists the aid of his college campus ministry friend, Piper Merrill, now a marketing genius. Searching for stories about the inn they can use for advertising, Piper discovers a long-ago mystery that could put the inn and Embarrass on the map--or ruin everyone's reputations. As clues surface, so does the undeniable attraction between Elliott and Piper. When they find the missing treasure, will they also find they were meant to be together all along?
Lilly bakes up a storm while facing mystery and romance. Meanwhile, Elliott and Piper unearth a village’s secrets, finding love along the way.
