Nothing makes a summer special as falling in love ...
When her parents divorced, Mariah lost her family. Now she's lost her hope for a special summer, because she must set aside her own plans to help her mother with a house-sitting job in rich, snobby Palm Springs.
Then Mariah meets Paul Strobe. Although he's rich, he's no snob. His piercing blue eyes and sandy hair quickly break down all of Mariah's defenses.
But Paul becomes seriously ill and is taken to the hospital. Even all his family's money cannot help him. Will Mariah lose Paul, too, just when she's found her first love?
