We may be still waiting for the weather here in the Northeast to catch up with the calendar, but my thoughts have most definitely turned to summer! I’m writing a new book based in a coastal resort town. My protagonist, Bee, needs a job, and she needs one fast. Her whole ordered life has been turned inside out when her family is hit with a financial meltdown and her funding for graduate school has dried up.
She heads to the one place that has always been a source of happiness and joy for her — a small hamlet on Cape Cod. And while she knows that she can earn enough money in a summer to pay for her classes, she doesn’t count on her sudden role reversal — from paying customer to server — to be so hard. Let’s just say that navigating through some incredibly choppy waters makes for some very interesting situations… and some fascinating bedfellows!
