When Katie Steury hires Harley Lambright to remodel her rundown house into a bed-and-breakfast, she does so with trepidation. Though they are longtime friends, they've recently had a rocky relationship, thanks to her being partly responsible for his latest breakup. But while they may not always get along, she needs someone to trust with her secrets, and Harley is nothing if not trustworthy. Katie has always reminded Harley of a bright hummingbird-- she moves a mile a minute, and she possesses a very sharp beak. He's hesitant to accept the job because of his history with Katie. But when he realizes that Katie's been hiding her mother's hoarding, he agrees to help her because it's clear she needs someone on her side. Both soon discover that clearing the debris in an old house can lead to some clean-up in their lives, too. As the house gets a second chance, so does their relationship. Now all they have to do is open their hearts-- and hope and pray that their new bond will also stand the test of time.
