Flora is grateful to be back home in Mure and even happier that her former boss Joel, now boyfriend, has joined her. But her café is barely making ends meet and workaholic Joel is frequently away on business. When Flora surprises Joel with an unexpected trip to meet him in New York, nothing goes as planned, and she returns home unsure of their future. Meanwhile, her brother Fintan is busy planning his wedding to American billionaire Colton, who bought up part of the island and fell in love during the process. Saif, the island's doctor and a Syrian refugee, is also slowly making Mure his home and is thrilled but worried about being reunited with his children and bringing them to the island. There's never a dull moment on Mure as Flora and her friends and family face their pasts and also a terrible new secret.
