And while she takes prides in her life as homemaker, she's also harboring a secret: she's in love with bad boy Simon Hochstetler. Life hasn't been kind to Simon. He ran away from an abusive home at fifteen and eventually landed in prison. But the experience changed him, and now he's determined to make a new life for himself back in Charm. When he realizes that Amelia returns his affections, he starts calling on her in secret. But when Amelia gets hurt, it sets off a chain of events that forces Simon and Amelia to consider whether they have a future together, or whether their past will keep them apart.
