Laura Murdock decides to take a well-deserved and way overdue three week vacation to the Virgin Islands. As a social worker who counsels abused women and children, she has has a problem getting away and taking time for herself. She chose St. John island because her favorite artist, Sebastian, is from there and she hopes to acquire some of his work, not knowing that he is vacationing there as well. Laura gets to meet Sebastian and something of an island affair develops but then she is forced to come to terms with his life back in the States and whether she can be a part of it.
Lots of twists and turns made this a great read and I especially liked that the happy ending brought more challenges than expected.
