What does great coffee roasting, wooden boats, and Washington’s San Juan Islands have in common? A mysterious sea-drifter named Winston and a barista named Halem.

Halem, one of Seattle’s finest coffee roasters and baristas, comes to a gorgeous but remote harbor in Washington’s San Juan Islands to escape her dark past. She learns the tastes of her eccentric customers and serves them well. One day, a mysterious and handsome man comes rowing into the village from somewhere in the Pacific. He has the uncanny ability to peer into her soul as well as the souls of the coffee shop patrons and puts his finger on their greatest emotional needs. Is he her savior who can lead her out of own emotional labyrinth or just a swindler? Will she find her life’s greatest love fulfilled in him or her greatest heartache?
