Katie Jarvis has to make a decision. She knows that her engagement to fellow school teacher Jason King may not be the love match of the century but she feels secure and comfortable with her upcoming marriage because “Jason and I want the same things. We have the same values.”
But Katie has to rethink her orderly life when, on a winter skiing vacation, she meets and quickly falls in love with Sam Hubbard. Sam’s the opposite of Jason—he’s spur-of-the-moment, likes taking chances and his job takes him out of the country for weeks at a time.
Sam has fallen in love with Katie and in the seven days that they spend together at Cedar Crest Lodge he tries to persuade her to marry him. But Katie’s afraid to listen to her heart—her father’s business travelling was the reason her parents divorced and long ago she vowed that she would not let that happen to her.
But love has a way of not always conforming to set ideas and Katie has to rethink her engagement to Jason, her instantaneous love for Sam and then make the decision about the rest of her life.
