Some people have bucket lists, things they want to accomplish before they die. Betsy Detweiler has led a sheltered life but now has a life list! These are things that Betsy hopes to accomplish right now, like learning to golf, to swim, to ride a bike. Some of the activities that she was not allowed to participate in because of her serious asthma. Now staying in Pinecraft, Florida for a month, Betsy is ready to try out her list and live a little.

Of course along the way, Betsy meets August Troyer, golf expert and teacher, and they immediately connect. Her only wish is a romance, a light and fluffy one, but one sure to delight followers of this series by Gray.
