Becc was the good girl. A dedicated student. Aspiring reporter. Always where she was supposed to be. Until a secret affair one summer in college cost her everything she held dear: her journalism dreams; her relationship with her best friend; and her carefully imagined future. Now, Becc’s past is back as she travels up the scenic California coast to a wedding --- with a man she hasn’t seen in a decade. But the man beside her is not so eager to re-create history. And as the events of that heartbreaking summer come into view, Becc must decide if those dazzling hours they once shared are worth fighting for or if they’re lost forever.

Laura and Casey were once inseparable: as they floated on their backs in the sunlit lake and teamed up for the wild scavenger hunts in their small California lakeside town. Until one summer night, when a shocking betrayal sent Laura running through the pines, down the dock and into a new life, leaving Casey and a first love in her wake. But after 17 years away, Laura is pulled home and into a reunion with Casey she can’t resist --- one last scavenger hunt. With a twist: this time, the list of clues leads to the settings of their most cherished summer memories. But just as the game brings Laura and Casey back together, the clues unravel a stunning secret that threatens to tear them apart.
