Layla McCarthy has spent most of her life trying to outrun the wild reputation of the mother who abandoned her. Raised by her grandmother - Dr. Barbara McCarthy, one of the first female surgeons in Florida - Layla puts all her faith in building a career, only to lose everything. Then, she learns her grandmother and great aunt have bought a run-down dinner theater in her hometown of Shellwater Key, Florida, and Layla returns to make sure her relatives don't lose their life savings. Reviving The Paradise brings an unexpected romance with Grayson Kendall, the sexy and enigmatic theatre director brought in to produce the first show. But nothing will ever be the same when Layla's long-lost mother returns, looking to make amends. Layla doesn't think it's possible to forgive or forget...until she learns the truth behind her abandonment all those years ago, including the dark role played by her beloved grandmother.
In the end, The Paradise will become the backdrop as Layla opens her heart to love, and three generations of McCarthy women find a way through past mistakes to a new life filled with hope and redemption.
