Overview

Playwright Linda Lucas is struggling to build a career in New York City. When a Hollywood producer purchases the film rights to one of Linda's plays, she travels to Los Angeles to collaborate on the movie script. There she is teamed up with Scott Richards, a writer who lives at the beach and admits to having an aversion to work.

At first, Linda is appalled by Scott's lack of ambition and laid-back lifestyle, but soon his good nature and offbeat charm begin to win her over. Working at the beach turns into a fun-filled adventure with Scott and his zany neighbors.

By the time the movie script is finished, Linda and Scott are falling in love, but an important offer on one of her plays sends Linda rushing back to New York. Scott comes to New York to visit and finds that Linda's former boyfriend, a successful actor, is romancing her again. Scott wants Linda to go back to the beach with him, but Linda's stage career is flourishing. Can this mismatched couple overcome their bi-coastal conflicts and let love dictate the future?

It's about two people with some fundamental lifestyle conflicts who fall in love. They find a way to compromise and be together without the usual hysterics, hair pulling, gnashing of teeth, or bitter recriminations. Imagine that! I loved the hero, understood the heroine, laughed at the antics of the secondary characters - and, boy, do I want to live where Scott lives. Hollywood! Malibu! New York! Movies! Broadway! What more exciting locales or glamorous jobs could this author write for her down-to-earth characters whose realistic, yet clever and refreshing dialogue makes them jump off the page. Carol Costa has brought to life a thoroughly enjoyable love story.
