American bachelor Miles Drummond, living in Cuernavaca, Mexico, and running out of money, halfheartedly places an ad in a few U.S. newspapers announcing a summer art workshop. Much to his surprise, thirteen students write for details . . . and arrive in Cuernavaca a few weeks later. The hotel Miles has rented is crumbling. The VW bus he borrowed is a disaster. The two instructors he hired hate each other on sight. But the students—young and old, single and married, rich and poor—aren't simply looking for an education. Some are fleeing private anguish. Others are seeking romance. All will find more adventure than they ever dreamed possible.
