New York City-savvy Jamie Newman has just arrived in Seaside Cove, North Carolina, to lick her wounds after her half sister steals her boyfriend. Jamie was not expecting the Waldorf Astoria, but her rental, named Paradise Lost, is dreadful. She is not sure how she will survive the summer until she meets Nick Trent, her landlord. Although the two have a rocky start, Jamie and Nick soon connect over their love of animals, the disappointment of failed relationships, and the shared peace they feel in quaint Seaside Cove. When Jamie’s demanding family begin to invade her sanctuary (and thereby defeat the purpose of her getaway), she relies on Nick to help her make peace with the changes in her life. Jamie discovers that not only do the two agree on almost everything, but also that leaving Seaside Cove to return to the Big Apple might be more difficult than she could have imagined.
