After a shootout, FBI Agent Rebecca Lin has gained temporary custody of her partner’s son while the man battles to survive. Unused to children, Rebecca decides to hide in Bloo Moose, a town she encountered in a previous case. No one in their right mind would ever look for Rebecca in a fishing town.
Gage LaChance runs LaChance Lodge, builds boats, and spends as much time in his woods as possible. After the death of his high-school girlfriend, he lives on the surface, never sinking too deep. Life is good and he plans to keep it that way.
When the uptight agent he met last spring arrives with a kid in tow, Gage knows something’s up. Agent Lin couldn’t pull off “camping with a nephew” if a tent popped out of her briefcase. Who camps with a briefcase?
Worried about the kid, and drawn inexplicably to the woman, Gage jumps in to help Rebecca learn to relax.
Because she lets her guard down, the people looking for the boy find their way to Bloo Moose. Taking off into the woods, they’ll need Gage’s skills and Rebecca’s cool if they’re going to keep the boy safe.
