Amicably separated from her husband, Ian, Eve enjoys her life in the small seaside town of Littelsea. She likes her job; has good friends and regular tennis partners; and currently shares her house with her twenty-something son Ben, the apple of her eye. She's quite sure that she doesn't want the messy complications of romance. But then Ian announces he's found someone new; Ben takes up with Eve's (married) friend Sabine; and Eve herself meets an attractive, unattached American. Perhaps it is worth risking her well-ordered life for love after all.
