Wriggle your toes in the sand and feel the warm breeze on your face when you check into the hotel that's full of dreams...

`The happy plot is charming... very entertaining' Publisher's Weekly

Three years after ditching her career in New York City, Rosie never thought she'd still be managing the quaint faded Victorian hotel in her seaside hometown.

What's worse, the hotel's new owners are turning it into a copy of their Florida properties. Flamingos and all. Cultures are clashing and the hotel's residents stand in the way of the developers' plans. The hotel is both their home and their family.

That's going to make Rory's job difficult when he arrives to enforce the changes. And Rosie isn't exactly on his side, even though it's the chance to finally restart her career. Rory might be charming, but he's still there to evict her friends.

How can she follow her dreams if it means ending everyone else's?
