From national bestselling author Rochelle Alers comes the unforgettable story of three strangers whose lives are forever changed on a sultry island off the South Carolina coast.

Dr. Hope Sutton has everything she's always wanted: a winning career as an advice columnist and a hard-lovin' man who is not afraid to commit. But just when she's ready to settle down she finds out her man's been living a double life. Now she has to get a new one of her own—starting with a soul-searching trip to McKinnon Island. Rebecca Owns is a devoted wife and stay-at-home mother in desperate need of a vacation—alone. But will spending the summer on McKinnon Island help her to get it together...or will she be tearing her family apart? Theodore Howell has had a lot of success as a screenwriter. But his personal life? It's a mess. Suddenly the guardian of two half brothers and a half sister, how will this tried-and-true bachelor find room in his life for surrogate fatherhood and his demanding career? Their answers lie somewhere on sandy shores...
