Just as Abby and Trace are getting comfortable with their "friendship" agreement, Trace's beautiful singing partner Leigh arrives unannounced from Nashville. Leigh tries to convince Trace to return to Nashville and finish the album they were working on, while Trace hints at problems he needed to leave behind. Leigh checks into Jess's bed & breakfast, leaving Jess and Bree to wonder if the relationship between Trace and Leigh went beyond music. Megan visits with Connor in his small apartment and tries to mend old wounds, but Connor's resentment is still very apparent. Nell convinces Mick to stop meddling in Jess's business, so Mick takes on a new project - building a playhouse for Abby's girls. Abby goes to see Trace at the diner, and catches him and Leigh smiling and laughing over a meal. At the end of the episode, Mick gets a call from an Army representative, saying that Kevin's unit in Afghanistan has gone missing.
Abby O'Brien Winters returns to her hometown of Chesapeake Shores, Maryland, after receiving a panicked phone call from her younger sister Jess, who has renovated the Inn at Eagle Point. Abby's demanding career, divorce and young twin daughters, has kept her busy to even think about the town her father built. Saving her sister's inn from foreclosure means dealing not only with her fractured family but also with Trace Riley, the man she left ten years ago. He initially is an obstacle but becomes an unexpected ally and a second chance at finding love.
