Meredith Hall has a secret. Every night, she takes the ferry to meet Ben - her best friend and first love, who she has a second chance with. Until Wyatt washes ashore - a brash new guy with a Texas twang and a personality bigger than his home state. He makes Mer feel reckless, excited, and alive in ways that cut through her perpetual gloom. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.

But a storm is brewing in the Outer Banks. When it hits, Mer will find her heart tearing in half and her carefully constructed reality slipping back into the surf. She'll soon discover that even the most deeply buried secrets have a way of surfacing, and as they do, she'll have to come to grips with the fact that nothing is forever - especially second chances.
