Partying with friends and scoring a flawless tan is about all Roxie has on her list of things to make her Hampton’s summer perfect.

Her parents, however, have other plans and Grandma Betty’s farm is just one of them.
Just as her life is in shambles and the quaint town is suffocating her, she meets Chase.
Somewhere in the mix of bummer summer and small town doldrums, he becomes the boy she can’t seem to avoid falling for. Just adding him to the picture, her stay starts to get better, even if she knows it has to end with the summer holidays.

That is until Betty drops a life-shattering bomb.

Roxie must make a choice that will change her life forever. What happens when a spoiled brat from New York learns the true meaning of love, loss, and forgiveness?

Can Chase and Roxie find a way to be together or is this just another summer romance?


 “You look a little shell shocked.  What’s on your mind?” she asked as she glanced between my face and the menu in front of her.

“I’d rather not say,” I replied, trying to hide my smile as I perused the menu I was clutching.
“I see.  Hmm, lemme guess.  This fits your idea of us Southerners, right?  The small town diner, complete with all the ‘cheesy’ trimmings,” she replied as she stared straight into my eyes.
“Come on! I mean, it’s so cliché.  How do you not see it?” I asked.  If looks could kill, I would be bleeding on the floor at that moment.  Evidently she didn’t find it funny at all.
“Cliché?  You think you’ve got it all figured out, don’t ya?  You think you know what all of us around here are like, but you have no idea.  Not really,” she paused and scanned the diner.  Her eyes settled on a man across the room that looked to be in his late thirties or early forties.  “See that man over there?  What’s his story?”
“I don’t know him!  How am I supposed to know?” I replied.
“You’ve got us all figured out, so you should know.”
I looked closely at him, studying him from across the room.  He was dressed in dirty jeans, a torn t-shirt, and scuffed work boots.  “In all honesty, he looks homeless,” I said as I looked back at Grandma.
“Wrong.  That’s Dr. Livingston.  He’s the only family medicine doctor for 50 miles.  If anything happens to you, God forbid, he’s the one who will be treating you.” The smug look on her face was more than I could handle.  She knew what I would see when I looked at him.
