STORYLINE:
Jackie Sinclair, a successful luxury travel writer, decides that she’s overworked, too scattered, and needs some time to unwind. When her best friend, Annette, 30s, convinces her to go ‘glamping’ in a luxury RV she’s rented at a remote state park, the two set out on a girl’s trip that’s supposed to be all about enjoying the solitude without ever really ‘roughing it.’ That’s when the women meet attractive park ranger Sean Davis who loves everything nature-related. When Annette’s sister goes into labor early, Annette has to leave, forcing Jackie to stay at the campground alone for two days to wait for the RV repairman so they can get the RV out of the park. Will Sean be able to convince Jackie that his feelings for her are real or will these two completely compatible opposites miss out on true love?
