Gia and Cal
Gia Franchetti is being haunted by her adoptive father who died disappointed with his life—and Gia’s. To make sure she doesn’t look back with the same regrets, Gia makes plans to move from her hometown, Boston, to China, her country of origin, to learn more about herself and her background.
But while following her father’s ghost, Gia meets musician Cal Webb. Cal is gorgeous, sweet, and has his life (and piano) planted firmly in Boston. The two fall recklessly into a relationship knowing there is an expiration date. As the unlikely couple draws closer, Gia starts to wonder if she’s chasing one dream only to abandon the possibility of love.
