Summary Excerpt Comments

Falcon's Bend is a small, sleepy town in Wisconsin that owns more taverns than churches, but fills both on the appropriate days. Teenagers talk of escape from the one-horse town because nothing ever seems to happen. But, even here in the Heartland, police investigators Pete Shasta, Danny Vincent and Amber Carfi fight a never-ending battle to keep their beloved families and hometown safe and sound.

Patrol Officer Amber Carfi and her partner on and off the Falcon’s Bend Police Department, Warren Jensen, are facing some major life changes. They eloped a month ago, and Amber's not keen on telling her father why she'd deprived him of being present for the event--namely that she was tired of the heated “nuptials” competition with her father’s bride-to-be Cora. Additionally, following an on-the-job injury that’s left him unable to do his work properly, Warren is retiring early from the force. On this, his last day on the job, Amber and Warren are called to the Falcon's Bend High School. Sloane Oligney and high school math teacher Chad Martin are two of the unfortunate hostages of a troubled, violently dangerous student "JZ" who blames Sloane for his girlfriend Laura breaking up with him.

        Sloane's daughter Laura is the picture of popularity--good grades and a cheerleader. She'd been tutoring JZ this school year and flirting with him, not realizing how much he's fallen in love with her until it's too late. Laura uses her mother as a convenient excuse to end any potential romance when JZ tells her how he feels. But a furiously angry JZ won't let it end at that, not when he discovers that Mr. Martin has asked Sloane to speak at their Careers class.

        Sloane has been blind since birth but she hasn't let her disability slow her down. She's an inspiration to those around her. Still, the one mistake she believes she'd made was falling in love with the wrong person. While Laura came out of that ill-advised union and her daughter has been the best kind of blessing, she doesn't believe in "love at first sight"--certainly not the ungrounded type JZ is convinced he holds for her daughter. Nevertheless, when Sloane hears Chad’s voice as he talks her down and helps her through their precarious situation, she wonders if “love at first sound” is possible…and whether they’ll make it out alive to find out for sure.
