Debra’s wedding day ended when the groom jilted her three hours before the ceremony, leaving her with a stiff catering bill and a broken heart. Now, he’s off to Bora Bora on a one-man honeymoon, and she’s on the couch in her wedding dress, watching Christmas movies and eating her way through the corner market. Inspired by her movie marathon, she decides to do a home exchange on a Spanish island to get over her ex.
But Debra’s life is nothing like the movies, and her home exchange goes terribly wrong. Stranded, she draws the attention of a hunky café owner who might know more than he admits about the disappearances of some local women.
If Debra's not careful, she may be the next one to disappear.

“No, I don’t need a return ticket,” I told Stacy on the phone. “I’m calling about something more important.”
“Oh God. ‘Important’ sounds bad.”
“I may have had sex on the beach.”
“Go on,” she said after a moment. “Should I get chips? I wish I didn’t have a shoot in the morning. I would eat chips.”
“And on a bar. I had sex on a bar.”
“Like a gymnast’s bar?”
“No, like a bar with drinks,” I said. “And peanuts.”
“Peanuts and chips. Yum,” Stacy breathed. I’m guessing you didn’t have sex by yourself.”
“There was someone else there.”
“No wonder you don’t want a return ticket,” Stacy said.
“And I look like a clown. I had a mishap with temporary hair dye.” My breath hitched, and I choked back a tear.
“And I did it with a kidnapper.”
“Excuse me?” she asked.
“Doyle. The bar and the beach. He might be a kidnapper.”
“I’m online now. There’s a flight in six hours. I’ll get you a ticket.”
“Or a murderer,” I added. “He could be a murderer. The girls are missing, so I don’t know for sure.”
