Former Delta Force soldier Sam Mendenhall is the Shelbyville, Michigan constable. His work is relatively quiet as he takes care of the 1,245 year round residents and the additional “summer folks”. However, lately he has learned how inadequate his service skills are involving petty thefts as someone has successfully stolen a flag from the post office and old curtains from a home amidst other items.
Beth Simon has come home from California to convert her family home to a bed and breakfast and to leave behind her violent former business partner Danny. Beth and Sam were high school sweethearts, but that was then and this is now. When they meet for the first time in years, the attraction remains hot. As they begin to overcome their doubts about the other, Danny starts to stalk Beth.
