The book is a romantic comedy set in Provincetown, Massachusetts. It's told from two first person points of view; that of the heroine, Nikki and that of the hero, Marco. The two first person structure was a little tricky, as I had to have openings for both characters. Last week, I posted Nikki's first eight lines, which open the book.
