Move to the country for $1 a week. Dulili is suffering a people drought. Over the years more people have moved away than have arrived to stay in this old New South Wales farming town, and now only a handful of young families and elderly residents are left. The locals put a plan into action to entice newcomers: offering the town's empty houses to newcomers from anywhere in Australia. Who could resist renting a beautiful homestead for a dollar a week? Newly divorced Bea Elliot needs Honey Hill House for more than just a quaint project - restoring a ramshackle old farm house to a successful B&B will prove to her family - and herself - that she is strong enough to make a go of things on her own. She doesn't need anyone to help her, even if the guy next door is remarkably obliging, delightfully generous, and terribly charming. A city girl won't last six months in the country, but Callum 'Mitch' Mitchell has good manners and loves his town, so he'll be neighbourly, but keep his distance. Experience has taught him not to get involved with out - of - towners. Even if this out - of - towner is surprisingly resilient, unexpectedly tough, and unpredictably fond of local football.
Good fences make good neighbours, but in Dulili, it seems like barriers might instead be breaking down. A small town romance sent against the romance of the beautiful Dandenong mountains about loss, lies, and the courage to live true. Forget the whole billionaire tycoon thing: Kate Moore is a billionaire's daughter, and she knows first - hand that they're not all romance novel worthy. Her father is brilliant, inflexible, and brutal - and nothing she's ever done has been good enough for him. Her one chance to take over the massive Moore's Hotel Corporation is restoring the run - down Burnham Beeches in beautiful Sassafras to its former glory. To that end, she hires David Wright, a talented landscaper with an unparalleled eye for beauty and an unparalleled talent for distracting her from her goal. David really needs this job. He needs the contract, the Moore's name on his portfolio, and the money to pay for his ailing father's health. Everything he's worked for is now within his grasp, and he's going to reach for it with both hands. What he doesn't need is the diversion, or the temptation, presented by his new boss.
Neither David nor Kate are free to follow their own desires, but they're powerless to fight their growing attraction. But they come from very different places; perceptions will have to crash, misconceptions will have to collapse, and they will have to face their own personal challenges before they find their space to meet in the middle.
