Carrie Slayton, a big-city columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge. She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author. Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. When she finally finds Finn, she discovers a man both more charismatic and more stubborn than she even expected. And soon she is torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart.
