There’s nothing much that’s romantic about a taxi ride, and there didn’t seem to be much romantic about the driver of the taxi that Sophia got into when she should have been reuniting with her family.

A high school reunion can be a challenging place for people to reconnect, especially when you know you’re going to see the girl you had a crush on. For Shade Sterling, that girl that has since become the town’s sheriff and it feels like the timing is finally right—until the body of Shade’s ex-girlfriend is finally found and suspicion falls firmly on him.

So he’s definitely not thinking romance when Vivian shows up to assess his land, but his chemistry with the biologist is impossible to deny.
