Released in June, the novel is set in a beach town in Long Island - think blue hydrangeas, beach dunes, a soft warm breeze. It's a story about first loves remembered, and the heartbreak that goes with them:
Sam’s life is on track. She has the perfect doctor fiancé, a great job in Manhattan, and is about to tour a wedding venue near her family’s Long Island beach house. Everything should go as planned, until it doesn't with the return of her first love who broke her heart when she was sixteen.
Come meet the authors and see what all the buzz is about!
