Five simple words: That's all it takes to
change the course of 18-year-old Josie Graham's life in the summer of
Josie is a musical prodigy: She can sing, play guitar and is a natural on the
piano. Instead of spending her last summer before college traveling the country
with her rock star father, she's made a last minute decision to spend it
working at her Aunt Bernie's inn, in Ambler's Fork, North Carolina. But what
could have turned her life-long passion for music into a hatred for an industry
she's worked so hard to get into?
Her aunt's inn seems like the perfect place to escape, to clear her head and
figure things out, but on her first day there, she almost drowns before Chic
Hobbs saves her.
Chic wants nothing more in life than to leave Ambler's Fork and his sordid past
behind—at least not until that day Josie Graham swims into his life. The
problem is, Chic's got a secret. It's a secret he's keeping from Josie, and
he's worried if it gets out, it'll ruin everything, and she'll judge him for
his past mistakes the way everyone else in town has.
Josie is carrying a burden of her own. One that made her run to Ambler's Fork -
away from her family and everything she's ever known.
Chic saved Josie once. Can he save her again? Or will Josie rescue him this
