Starting over isn’t easy. Edged out of her challenging career in fashion design and suddenly discarded by her finance, Britney Thompson feels The Big Apple has chewed her up and spit her out.

The small tourist town of Seaside, Oregon is perfect for healing her wounds—perfect for starting over. Or so she thinks.

Teresa Brown, who uses the pen name of Paula Judith Johnson, is a long time resident of the North Coast. She is the author of four books and began her writing career in the eighth grade.
