A pretty implausible premise / Karen Rivers.

When Hattie and Presley meet, it's love at first sight. Head-spinning, Taylor-Swift-song-level feelings. Their instant connection seems implausible, even impossible, as they start to realize all they have in common. Both are grieving, living in worlds haunted by ghosts; both have a parent who's out of sight, not out of mind; and both were forced to give up their Olympic dreams. Connected by experiences only they understand, Hattie and Presley fall into a whirlwind romance - flirting at their workplace, sleeping side by side beneath the stars, ice skating to a playlist all their own, and finding strength in each other. But like the wildfires surrounding their California town, the trauma that haunts them is unrelenting. Can they overcome their losses without losing each other? Or will their ghosts break them apart?
