Felicity Quinlan has always felt like the odd duck. She was raised in a family who didn't allow her to do much of anything, and her personality has always been suppressed. When she moves to Culpepper, Wyoming, she watches her cousins and sister fall in love one by one, until she is the last Quinlan standing. She hopes she'll eventually find love, but for now she's too busy working in the bakery she started with her sister and cousin.
When Allen Jennings loses his first wife to one of the cursed underwear models that plagues Culpepper, he's certain there's something wrong. He isn't sure if it's with him, or human nature, but he knows he'll never have someone who will stay by his side. When innocent little Felicity Culpepper comes at him, armed with three cookies every hour, he doesn't know what to think. Will Felicity be able to convince him that some women do love forever? Or will they spend the rest of their lives hoping for the impossible?
