What would you do for a second chance at your first love? At thirty-eight, Louise Harrington still hasn't forgotten Scott Feinstadt, the boy who broke her eighteen-year-old heart and then died tragically in a car crash. Two decades later when his twenty-four-year-old doppelganger, the gorgeously boyish F. Scott Feinstadt, walks into her life, Louise might not know what to think, but this time around, at least she knows what she's doing. Scott still has the power to knock her off her feet, and her jealous best friend, self-involved ex-husband, and neurotic mother aren't helping matters, but Louise isn't about to make the same mistakes twice.
