Rachel Beck has hit a brick wall. She’s a single mom, still living at home and trying to keep a dying relationship alive. Aside from her daughter, the one bright light in Rachel’s life is her job as the night reservations manager at a luxury hotel in Miami Beach—until the night she is fired for something she didn’t do. On impulse, Rachel inquires about a management position at a brewery hotel on an island in Lake Erie called Kelleys Island. When she’s offered the job, Rachel packs up her daughter and makes the cross country move. What she finds on Kelleys Island is not what she expected. The hotel is barely more than a foundation and studs, and the owner, Andy Bowman, is in over his head. It’s not the job Rachel was promised, but Andy offers her a chance to help build a hotel—and renovate her own life—from the ground up.
