Torn between two men, Sally must follow her heart and decide if love will lead her to the city or the countryside.
Sally Rayton returns to the family farm to settle her grandfather's estate and return to her life in the city with her boyfriend, Trevor Mattson.
Her childhood friend, Jack, convinces her to transform the farm into a brewery. Sally works side-by-side with Jack while Trevor is hundreds of miles away in the city. The more time she spends with Jack, the stronger her feelings are for him.
When Trevor shows up to propose to Sally right before Christmas and finds her in Jack's embrace, she must make the biggest choice of her life: true love.
Jack looked where she pointed.
"Sally..." he began.
"Are you planning on selling it when the farm's made a profit?"
He turned her body around, his gaze penetrating hers.
"I don't know," she whispered. "I know Grandpa wanted me to keep it in the family." She furrowed her brow. "I'm not a country girl; my heart belongs to the city."
"Hey, it's okay." He moved a step closer. "Farming is hard work and you have to love it to make it successful." He put a hand on her shoulder. "Don't beat yourself up for following your heart."
"Jack, I'm not sure what my heart wants. Part of me loves being here, carrying on the family name."
"But..." Jack raised an eyebrow warily.
"But I have a life in the city. I've almost finished my degree --"
"You have Trevor," Jack interrupted her. He shook his head.
"What's wrong with that? Yes, I have a life and a boyfriend in the city. I've told you a thousand times my dream is to open my own sidewalk cafe." She folded her arms over her chest. "Don't you want me to be happy, Jack?" Her voice sounded hurt, even to her own ears.
He closed his eyes and rubbed his forehead.
"This isn't going how I wanted it to." He glanced up at her. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply anything. It's just --"
"What?" Sally cocked her head to one side.
The telephone rang inside.
"Sh**, I have to go answer it. I'll be right back." She ran into the house.
"Hi beautiful." Trevor.
