A woman who spends her entire life thinking she is cursed, and the man who never expected to fall for her.
Benjamin Strickland, head writer for The Daily Newspaper in New York City, assumes his latest expose is exactly what the newspaper wants. However, the paper decides to take a new direction, which forces Ben to brashly decide to call it quits, in the middle of the day, knowing the decision can possibly leave him blackballed by the entire journalism community.
His decision leads him to Abigail Rossino, a divorced photographer who shows him the image that will change Ben’s life forever as he knows it—a woman with blue hair who lives in the mountains on the Caribbean island of Oyster Key. She is known to the islanders as La Fanesta, the ghost, and legend has it that she was banished to the mountains for being born cursed with a deadly, poisonous touch.
Ben follows Abigail to Oyster Key expecting a major news story about a girl raised in isolation. One that can land him the coveted Pulitzer. What he doesn’t count on is that for the first time in his life, he might have found something more important to him than the latest major scoop…and a love that he could have never written, even in his wildest headline.
