Small town police officer Simon Labelle repressed his attraction to shopgirl Leona Chaisty for years. He's good at controlling his feelings—or he used to be, before the bombing that he can't solve, that he should have prevented. Now, after a chance encounter with Leona at the lake, Simon can't get her out of his head. All those high school fantasies roar to life.


Leona is drawn to the intensity in Simon's pretty-boy blue eyes. But he's a good man, and she'll never know how to love. Still, unlike everyone else, Simon acts like she might actually have a heart. The more time they spend together, the more she wishes he were right.


After a second unsolved case pulls them together, their chemistry rattles them both, and hints at an unsettling desire that Simon struggles to suppress. Leona pushes Simon to decide what he wants, while Simon, already falling for his dream girl, finally gets her to admit that she's lonely.

Each challenges the other to reveal more, to cede control, to be vulnerable. But they're both more fragile than they appear. It's only a matter of time before one pushes too hard, and the other breaks.

"I inhaled this story. After a string of reads that ranged from forgettable to dreadful, dare I say it? This book may have saved my life. I must have ALL the L. Setterby books now."
~ The Misadventures of Super Librarian
