Food writer Maggie Marrion is just getting back on her feet after a horrible year, or two, or three. With their twentieth reunion approaching, she invites four of her closest friends from college for a weekend at her beach cabin. What she doesn’t expect is her best friends, artist Quinn Dayton and part-time erotica novelist, Selah Elmore, to play matchmaker. The two plot a surprise that will make the weekend, and her life, a lot more interesting.
Gil Morrow, former grunge musician turned history professor, joins them as Selah’s date for the weekend. After coming face to face with the one who got away, he decides he's waited long enough to get the girl. With the support of old friends, a few wishing rocks, the world’s largest burrowing clam, and a hot lumberjack thrown into the mix, Gil reminds Maggie that forty-something isn’t too old for second chances.
Can we learn to love the life we have and let go of who we expected to be? What happens when the generation from The Breakfast Club and Reality Bites meets The Big Chill? Come spend a weekend with these Generation X-ers as they share laughter, tears, life’s ups and downs, old stories, and new beginnings.

Maggie wakes up cold, with something hard under her cheek. It takes a moment or two for her to remember she fell asleep on Gil, on the beach. Gazing up at the stars and the thin wisps of wood smoke, she stretches, and glances over at a sleeping Gil. Her movement causes him to stir.
Blinking open his eyes, he scrubs his face with his hands, and looks at her.
“We fell asleep.” She yawns, sitting up.
“Any idea how long we’ve been asleep?” He glances around. “The sky isn’t getting light, so it can’t be that late. Or early.”
“No idea, but the fire is almost completely out.” She yawns again. The embers glow and flicker under the accumulated ashes.
“Where’s the bucket?” His own yawn echoes hers. “Let’s put this thing out and go to bed.” He slowly stands and grabs the bucket from behind the log where she points.
While he walks down to the water, Maggie gathers a few stray cups and blankets.
A cloud of steam rises into the air when he tosses the water on the embers, obscuring him for a moment.
After shaking the sand out of the blankets and folding them, she sits on the log and waits for him to get another bucketful of water. Watching the last embers, she is reminded of her conversation earlier with Jo. One small ember could reignite a fire given the right kindling. Her mind drifts to Gil. What they have now is an ember. Fragile and easily extinguished. She frowns at the thought of extinguishing that ember forever.
When he returns, she uses a stick to spread out the dampened wood, checking for any remaining hot spots.
“I think we’re good,” she declares and turns to look at Gil.
He’s standing at her side and watching her. Darker now the firelight is gone, his eyes twinkle in the light reflecting from the slim moon over the water.
She wants to kiss him. Standing here in the dark on a quiet beach, sleepy, and chilled by the night, she wants nothing more than to curl back into his warmth and kiss him.a Rafflecopter giveaway
