Dear Lake, Michigan
A tiny resort town lives up to its sweet name.
Joshua has planned every detail of the vacation he’s going to take with his partner, Ciro. All Ciro has to do is show up. They’re headed for Dear Lake, a tiny town built around a modest resort that’s been serving up peace and quiet for more than fifty years.
Showing up is harder than it seems. The day their vacation begins, a big client finally decides to move ahead with a project Ciro has been trying to get for months. Joshua is livid—angry enough to leave without him—but there’s nothing Ciro can do about it.
Or is there? Alone in his office before the meeting, Ciro finally sees that he’s got his priorities mixed up. This meeting is important—but not more important than Joshua. He postpones the meeting and to hell with the consequences, then takes off for Dear Lake to make things right.
But when he arrives, the cabin they were meant to share is empty and Joshua is nowhere to be found. Ciro is left to face the realization that he might be too late to fix what he’s broken.
