Falling in love is not the plan
Police chief Alex Novak is exactly the kind of man Kristen Lange could fall for -- if she were staying in Sparrow Lake. But she can't fall. And she can't stay. Moving home was a temporary setback, not a life choice! As soon as she lands a job in Chicago, Kristen will be packing her Manolo shoes and hopping back on the fast track.
If she's going to meet her goals, she can't afford distractions -- or involvement. Not in her aunt's quilting store, not in her widowed sister's life, and certainly not with Alex. No matter how intriguing -- and determined -- he is. No matter what she's starting to feel.
