Several of you have asked where to get the book, but it isn't available yet. I sent it to the publisher last week so I guess we wait and see.
If you've been following, you know that my hero and heroine have just had a bad breakup that devastated him. He's crushed by her rejection and suspicion. In the story, it's been raining for weeks, and finally the entire area is in the grip of a major flood. The National Guard has issued a mandatory evacuation for everyone living along the Wendell River, and Aria (heroine) lives along the river. She told everyone she was going to her house to get a few things, but that was hours ago, and no one has heard from her or her mother. The National Guard is too busy to look for them, and Aria's father can't get to the river because of the flood. Caleb (hero) has just been informed of the problem.
If Aria and her mother were trapped in the house, there was no place for them to go except up on the roof, and the way it was pouring outside it would be hard to cling to a slippery, steep roof. Even if they did manage to hang on, the water might still rise too high… But what if they weren’t in the house? What if their car had been swept away by the flood water? No, this couldn’t happen! Forcing the dreadful picture from his mind, he sprang to his feet. “I’m going out there anyway. If it’s humanly possible, I’ll get to her house. ”
