My ode to Summer, Beach Thing, is LIVE! - The Sweet Escape
On one of my beach trips, I was watching the tide come in and thinking about a cute short story about a woman who owns some kind of business on an island and she meets a man she can't resist... but she has to, because he's not staying. That was summer of 2015.... it took all this time (and about 4 beach trips!) for this story to come together in my head.
