Lucy has been writing her dissertation for thirteen years when she and her boyfriend break up. She’s down in the dumps, and her sister Annika, who lives in Los Angeles, insists that Lucy house-sit for her. This includes caring for her diabetic dog. Even so, Annika is sure that getting out of Phoenix is just what Lucy needs to clear her head and start over. Lucy doesn’t exactly agree. Although the house and property are picturesque, she still has to go to her love-addiction meetings—which, by the way, don’t help at all—and her Tinder dates which aren’t any better. Things change, however, when she meets a steamy swimmer while sitting on the beach rocks. This is her chance to put a positive spin on things. Can she make it work with him or will it be another Tinder-like fail?
