Publisher's Summary

If only life were as simple as filling a vacancy. 

Hollis Jeffries is a “dynamo” as her father likes to say. She’s the youngest vice president at Dobbins Capital. She wows investors, runs marathons, and speaks three languages. As the oldest, Hollis is always first to try and first to succeed. According to the other Jeffries sisters, she’s practically perfect...until she’s not. 

Matthew Locke grew up in the shadow of his brother’s death and with the added pressure of his parents’ expectations. They want him to take over the family coffee shops someday, but Matt has other plans. Despite the grumblings of his working-class parents, he has found success in Silicon Valley even after dropping out of Stanford a semester shy of graduation. Matt has spent most of his life under the radar and there’s not much he’s willing to rock the boat for...until there is. 

Hollis and Matt met on Tomales Bay the summer they both turned 12, and during the summers that followed, they grew up and fell in love. One night, after an unexpected test, they fell apart. 

Now, 12 years later, Hollis, who seeks refuge at her uncle’s seaside cottages to ride out a storm of her own making and Matt, weighed down by obligation to his parents, both return to Tomales Bay. Forced to share another summer in the small town that brought them together, will Hollis and Matt be able to move beyond the echo of their past and into a future filled with ever after?

Love it!

Great love story! I always ENJOY and LOVE Xe Sands’ narration… she always makes the characters come alive! The narration is what determines if I’m going to listen to a book or not. Xe Sands NEVER disappoints!

So glad Xe Sands is back!!

This is a most enjoyable story read by a great narrator. Having thoroughly enjoyed "Blow" by Tracy Ewens and read by Xe Sands, I was so pleased to see another. It did not disappoint. I hope many more of Ewens' books will be read by Sands and hopefully soon, as the books already exist in print.
