Publisher's Summary

Emily Mitchell, 35, living and working in New York City, has struggled through a string of failed relationships. When her boyfriend of seven years takes her out for their long-awaited anniversary dinner, Emily is sure that this time will be different, that this time she will finally get the ring.
When he gives her a small bottle of perfume instead, Emily knows the time has come to break up with him - and for her entire life to have a fresh start.
Reeling from her unsatisfying, high-pressure life, Emily decides she needs a change. She decides on a whim to drive to her father's abandoned home on the coast of Maine, a sprawling, historic house where she'd spent magical summers as a child. But the house, long-neglected, is in dire need of repair, and the winter is no time to be in Maine. Emily hasn't been there in 20 years, when a tragic accident changed her sister's life and shattered her family. Her parents divorced, her father disappeared, and Emily was never able to bring herself to step foot in that house again.
Now, for some reason, with her life reeling, Emily feels drawn to the only childhood place she ever knew. She plans on going just for a weekend to clear her head. But something about the house, its numerous secrets, its memories of her father, its oceanfront allure, its small-town setting - and most of all its gorgeous, mysterious caretaker - doesn't want to let her leave. Can she find the answers she's been looking for here, in the most unexpected place of all?
Can a weekend become a lifetime?

Very Enjoyable

I'm not sure there are any bad books. At least I haven't heard one yet.
