Former child actress, Danielle “Dani” Winter, left Hollywood to transform an old cinema into a dinner theater, seeing the project as her chance to take control of her future. The middle-of-nowhere location in Wisconsin is a perfect escape from backstabbing celebrity friends. The small town welcomes her help with open arms, but one man questions her plan.
After unsuccessful writing stints on both coasts, Paul Howell returns home to New Hope. He’s shocked to discover that his sister has sold the family business to a beautiful woman. With the encouragement of his neighbors, he reluctantly agrees to write Dani’s next musical.
Working together, they discover more similarities than differences and grow close. When Dani’s former best friend and America’s sweetheart, Kara Kensington arrives, their blossoming relationship is threatened in more ways than one.
“I can’t.” Her voice cracked. Exhaling a heavy sigh, she stopped tapping and slumped her torso. Without the rush of adrenaline, she could barely hold up her head and definitely couldn’t fight the truth. “I don’t have the luxury of running everything on my own. Until I have a full managerial staff, I’ll be extinguishing fires and lighting other ones.”
“What happens when you do?” He lowered his brow and fixed his stare. “Don’t you want to score and direct your shows?”
She caught her bottom lip. He had a point. Growing up, she was slotted into various roles assigned by others. Starting her business, she seized control of her choices. Agreeing to share the responsibilities and consult with a partner had never been part of her plan. Could she share her dream? “To be honest, I don’t know. At some point, I’d like to return to the productions. When the time comes, maybe we collaborate, or we have another conversation about roles. We’re talking a long way off.”
He crossed his arms and nodded. “I’ll consider your offer on one condition.”
When he spoke, his gray-blue eyes lightened, matching the turquoise she’d painted the backdrop Atlantic Ocean. Her heartbeat quickened, and her mouth went dry. Anything. She swallowed, snapping to attention. “What’s your requirement?”
“Change the name. It’s confusing. You aren’t operating a hotel. People aren’t staying overnight.”
“Fair point.” She nodded. “Do you have any suggestions?”
“I do.” He stuffed both hands in his pockets and shrugged. “What about Holidays, Inc .?”
