Somewhere in Between - Any hopes of creative fulfillment are crushed when twenty-six year-old Thomas O'Hollaren is forced to abandon his starving-artist's lifestyle and return home to Seattle to run the family business. Stuck in limbo and unavoidable guilt regarding his past relationship with his father, Thomas finds an unexpected friendship that begins to challenge his pessimism towards people, love, and faith. Optimistically waiting for her one true love is proving to be challenging and incredibly frustrating for Maura McCormick. She begins to doubt if she has the spiritual wherewithal to meet the standards of the devout dating pool of Blessed Sacrament Church. As she struggles to determine what level of holiness is required for the committed, romantic love she craves, it is Maura's inherit desire to care for those in need that may end up leading her away from what, and who, she always thought would make her happy.
Somewhere Unexpected - Life is finally starting to turn out just as Maura McCormick has always expected. She should be overcome with joy (and relief) given the highly anticipated marriage proposal from her handsome (but more importantly, devoutly Catholic) boyfriend, Ethan. Instead, Maura is met with an inability to quiet growing apprehension. When the unexpected has always led to pain and disappointment, is it crazy to think that the unexpected is what her heart truly wants? Caring about anything besides himself was the last habit Thomas O'Hollaren ever thought he'd pick up after returning home to Seattle. But his unlikely friendship with Maura McCormick seems to have put a pause on Thomas' lifelong track record of selfishness. Is this newfound goodness genuine or is it just a ploy to take advantage of another woman?
