At thirty-seven, Tessa Harlow leads hiking tours for adventurous vacationers–it’s a job that’s taken her around the world but never a step closer to home or settling down to start her own family. Then a freak injury during a trip already marred by tragedy forces her to take time and consider what she will do next, beginning with a long stay with her father, and then a visit to Las Ladronas, located high in the New Mexico mountains. Las Ladronas has become a magnet for the very wealthy and very hip, but once upon a time it was the setting of a childhood trauma Tessa can only half remember. Now, as she rediscovers both her old hometown and her past, Tessa is drawn to search-and-rescue worker Vince Grasso. The handsome widower isn’t her type, but as the father of three little girls, including an eight-year-old girl as lost as Tessa herself, Tessa and Vince find themselves thrown together. Both Tessa and Vince are drawn to the town’s most beloved eatery– 100 Breakfasts –and to each other. For Tessa, the restaurant is not only the key to the mystery that has haunted her life but a chance to find the home and the family she’s never known.
