She takes a job in the company he was fired from, and soon takes the opportunity to go to a wedding under the pretenses of being her boss's girlfriend (to help out her boss, whose mother constantly tries to matchmake him). Some in her boss's family, the Matheson's, were responsible for accusing and firing Gabe.

As Lisa and her boss, Dylan, research the accusation of her step-brother, Lisa maintains the deception that Gabe is in no way related to her.

The Matheson family accepts Lisa as one of their own for the most part, and Lisa thinks how fortunate Dylan is to have such a family. There is something unresolved and strained between Dylan and his father, however, and between Dylan and his brother.

When Lisa and Dylan go sailing one day, they find both of their feelings for each other escalating. They both grow in their faith in God. Together they read a passage of scripture about love being kind and patient.

When Dylan finds out about Lisa's deception, however, he is angry. Lisa assures him her love for him is real. Will Dylan believe her, and forgive her for her lies? Will he realize that true love is patient?
