Twenty-three-year-old Babe (who goes by Barbara anyway?) Vogel is ready for her next time big adventure. Adventure with a capital B. As in boyfriend. And she knows exactly who she wants to reel in, hook, line, and sinker: Levi Keller.
An artist with paint-smudged fingers and half-moon circles under his eyes, Levi washed up the postcard-perfect Maine town of Oar's Rest months ago, and seems content to live like a hermit all summer. Other than the leather-bound notebook he carries with him everywhere he goes, the boy is an absolute mystery to the curious residents of the coastal town.
Determined to pull the hermit out of his shell, Babe rebarks on a whirlwind, one-woman adventure to prove that someone who has never been anywhere or done anything can, after all, find a way to get a happy ending.
