Three childhood friends, Kate Campbell, Miles Hoffman and Ziggy Miller have made lives for themselves and for most that doesn’t include Sea Point.

Kate Campbell has it all going for her in Manhattan! She has her whole future planned out. She has a long term boyfriend who she just KNOWS is about to propose. She has plans for their kids and how they’ll raise them and what life has in store for their perfect future…. until the proposal is actually a break up. Determined to win him back she moves back to Sea point and comes up with a three point plan that only requires one summer to be carried out. She just knows this is all it’ll take to get her future back on track.

Miles Hoffman, the Prince of Sea Point, he has always been a player. He’s a shoe in for the CEO position of his mother’s business so he’s never had to take anything serious. Why take relationships and work serious if you don’t have to right? Except, he’s not going to be handed that CEO title like he thinks. He’s going to have to work for it. Determined to prove his worth he winds up back in Sea Point to show what he’s made of.

Last but certainly not least, we have Ziggy Martin. Ziggy has taken over the family business after the death of his father. He’s always stayed in Sea Point but now he needs the help of his best friend Miles to decipher his father’s books. Unfortunately, it’s not going to be as easy as Ziggy had hoped.

This book was such an adorable coming of age book. I loved watching the characters grow and discover themselves. I loved them finding their worth and forgiving each other for childhood mistakes and building their friendships as adults. You see a lot of resentment and anger at first stemming from their childhood and watching the characters mature and let go of that anger. I love how relatable and real the characters were. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
