Casey is a dessert baking extraordinaire, whose delights are as sweet as his heart, but don't let that sugary smile fool you. He has an attitude that's more tart than his sour lemon meringue cupcakes.
Casey's looking forward to lazy days tucked away under the covers until winter's passed over the town of New Syracuse, but life has other plans for him. Nothing could prepare him for the tragedy that hits their family this bone-chilling winter, but Casey's trying to stay strong for himself and his two-year-old son, Wyatt.
Meeting the mysterious gangster, August turns Casey's mundane life upside down and only makes it harder to trust anyone. As they grow closer, Casey realizes he's falling hard for the charming young man, who's nothing but trouble. And it seems like the feelings are mutual.
