Who said, "you can't go home again"?In Veronica Davis's case, who'd want toâ€”especially when you hail from Fossil, Washington? But now she's back among the kooks and crazies, the small-time losers and the jerks who think she's fair game just because she's in a waitress uniform.The truth is, Veronica's the bossâ€”at least until she can sell the family saloon and skip town again as fast as her pretty legs can carry herâ€”and nobody knows that better than Cooper Blackstock. From his place behind the bar, the former Special Forces Marine sees everything. And his undercover agenda has made the feisty boss-lady's troubles his own.And her troubles are considerable, what with a family in turmoil, a pseudo-bartender with dangerous secrets, a murder investigation and death threats. Though the town surprisingly rallies in support, it's still a good thing that Cooper will be there to catch Veronica if she stumblesâ€”if he doesn't start falling himself.
