Aerospace engineer Linda Winthrop loves her post-divorce life. Her kids are grown and her ex is someone else's problem, so she's free to live as she chooses, dividing her time between her career at NASA and surfing on the Florida coastline. But when she goes to Cape May, New Jersey, to urge her elderly mother to move to a safe retirement complex, Linda runs into unexpected opposition. And what might be romance with another surfer.
Dan Decatur, surfer dude matured into a respectable business owner, is tired of the Los Angeles beach scene, but he never expected a visit to family in Cape May would lead to an argumentative relationship with feisty Linda. And something more. But what? They're both just visiting Cape May. They live on opposite coasts. How can they be together? Should they be together?
Linda and Dan are both supposedly free, but are they? As surprising new family obligations pop up, Linda and Dan each have to reconsider their priorities and their next steps. Is it possible for them to be happy and also do the right thing?
