On the Beach

Sidney Carlson has hard feelings toward her last three boyfriends which keeps potential suitors at arms’ length. She loves the beach and whenever she can she spends her time on the sand.
During a winter stay at her favorite motel, a storm forces her to share her room with Alder Finch, a regional bookstore manager. When they return to their lives in the real world, they begin a romance that seems to be leading to marriage.
But on a business trip, Finch is thrown together with his ex-wife, a woman he's neglected to tell Sidney about. When he calls to tell her what’s going on, Sidney incorrectly understands that he and his ex are getting back together and ends her relationship with him.
Back on the beach, they each search out a new place where they won't bother the other. Fate has other plans.
