Teodoro built a successful business with his brother in L.A. but when his grandmother’s health took a downturn, he knew he had to move to St. Raphael to take of his Nonna. She has other plans, like making sure she would have some great-grandbabies to spoil. Mirella is the perfect candidate & before Teo knows it’s happening, he finds himself falling for a woman whose heart has been scarred and stomped on. He knows that he is the right man to heal her heart.
When her past shows up, threatening their relationship, instead of putting a wedge between them, they discover that coming to St. Raphael was more than just a change of locale, they were Finding Home.
