Duffy Girl

She’s not a boater by any means, but when it comes to making friends she’ll do anything. Her little electric boat electricites her life in a way that nothing ever has before.

Pebbles Lynn Stone has never been good at making friends and when she does, they don’t last long. Her overbearing and critical nature put people off. A simple housesitting job turns into a life-changing event. At first, the small electric boat docked in front of the house is intimidating and an annoying chore. It doesn’t take long for Pebbles to realize its true value. She’s collecting new friends every time she takes a cruise. When she has to return to her ordinary, pre-boat existence, her social life immediately dwindles. She decides to buy her own boat and that’s when her obsession begins. Before long, she has more friends than she can keep track of and her social life is booming. She’s so busy socializing; she doesn’t realize the rest of her life is falling apart. Her infatuation with her boat, and what she’s created with its roll in her life, is consuming her. A cantankerous old man comes in to save the day, in more ways than one.
