Sparks fly when Micara Lee and Garrett Hearth meet for the first time at a city hall meeting, where she tries once again to save the small town she loves from land developers. She believes Garrett Hearth, from one of the town's founding families, is on her side. They begin to fall in love, but eventually the truth comes out.
Disenchanted with his career, Sweet Home, and life in general, Garrett is ready to cash in and get out of town for good. He isn't prepared for his attraction to Micara or her beautiful spirit. It isn't long before her unyielding faith rubs off on him and he starts to see the world around him differently. His faith restored, he and Micara then work as a team to save the legacy of Sweet Home, Texas.
