Darcy’s nomadic life made her dream of finding a place to call home and putting down roots. So, when she sets out on her own, she returns to Montreal, the city of her birth, to do just that. But after a year, Darcy feels no more at home in Montreal than anywhere else in the world—and then she meets Francois.
Crushing on your new roommate isn’t the best idea but Darcy can’t help it. Francois is kind, funny, smart, and oh, so cute, especially the way he cares for Peaches, the cat. He even tolerates her grumpiness (it’s not easy to hide her crush) and helps her care for a pregnant dog she impulsively decides to foster.
Best of all, Francois breaks through the walls she’s built after years of having to move and start over. Allowing herself to trust, Darcy opens up to friends, to the community, and to love. But when Francois is offered a job in another city, Darcy panics and does the one thing she’s good at—she packs up and leaves.
Forced to face her fears and insecurities, Darcy returns to Montreal set to make things right with Francois but has she waited too long, and if so, can she live there without him?
