The memory of Lilah’s older brother plagues her and her mother during the Holiday season much more than any other time of the year. To escape the painful memories and growing silence, Lilah decides to work at her sister-in-law’s Inn for a few months. What she finds is certainly a distraction, but definitely not what she was expecting. World famous singer and Pop Star of the Year, Archer Lane, decides to rent out the entire Red Turtleneck Inn for the month. Its humble atmosphere and location is the perfect place for him to hide for the holidays and get some song writing done. Or, so he thinks.
The two strong-minded individuals don’t really account for each other in their plans, and instantly butt heads. When they’re forced to face what truly matters to them, will it bring them together or pull them further apart? Can these two seemingly lost individuals find a way to last the entire month and come out in one piece?
Lilah is the main character. Personality wise, Lilah is a determined individual. If you're dishonest and rude, she'll be apt to reciprocate. Though, she is loyal to her core. Once she's on your side, it's for life.
Archer became a pop star at the age of 16. Now, at the age of 24 he is an accomplished singer and song writer. All he wants to do is share his music, but the audience is fickle. Having adapted to the lifestyle of the rich and famous, Archer has come to expect a certain level of respect and adoration. Sometimes, this comes off as him being rude when you don’t grovel at his feet.
But deep deep down, there is still the man who wants to share his passion with the world. Are you willing to dig that far for this self centered jerk?

Of Pakistani descent, Anjali is Lilah's sister in law. She owns the Red Turtleneck Inn that Lilah will be working in. Her husband (Lilah's older brother, Craig Scott) has passed away, and because of it, Anjali has lived an isolated life in the small town of Riversone. Her story is much more than what meets the eye.
