Groundswell

Groundswell

A butterfly flaps its win gs in New Y ork City . . . and a groundswell forms in Mexico.

Sometimes the biggest ripples come from the smallest events. Like the day that novice PA Emma Guthrie walks into world-famous movie star Garrett Walker’s trailer. When she walks out, she’s on her way to becoming Mrs. Emma Walker, trading her jeans and flip-flops for closets full of Chanel and the start of a successful screenwriting career. But when an incriminating text message throws her marriage into question, Emma flees New York City for a sleepy coastal town in Mexico. Here, she meets gorgeous, California-born Ben, who teaches her about the healing powers of surfing, shows her the joys of the simple life, and opens her up to the possibility of love. An irresistible insider’s glimpse into a glittering world, Katie Lee’s debut novel is a captivating story about how losing everything you thought you wanted can be the first step to finding what you need.
