Leah has a new husband, a new house, a six pack of beer, two lobsters named Lavender and Leopold in her bathtub, and absolutely no idea what it means to be an adult.
When Leah, a young New York reporter, meets Henry, she falls in love with everything about him: the freckles on his back, the way he can make anything grow, and the stories he tells about his hometown of Menamon, Maine. So the two get married, pack up their city lives, and move into Henry’s childhood home. But no matter how hard she tries, Leah can’t wish herself into a “local.”
When Quinn’s mother dies, she goes looking for her famous folk-singer father, and her search leads her to a small seaside town called Menamon. Quinn gets a job at the Menamon Star and an apartment above the Station House Restuarant, while she tries to shore up the courage to confront her father. What she didn’t count on is Rosie the waitress who wants to be a singer, with her big lips and sultry voice, and her bedroom right next to Quinn’s...
At first, the only thing Leah and Quinn have in common is jobs at the Menamon Star. But when they stumble onto a story that could change everything for sleepy Menamon--and could run Leah’s husband out of his childhood home--each must consider what love, friendship, and Menamon, means to her.
