Eric Duncan rolls into a quaint Upstate New York town to sell medical supplies. He doesn’t intend to stay long, but an apparently homeless man whom he keeps running into catches his attention. While passersby ignore the man, Eric can’t leave the situation alone.
Dennis Hayden’s last memory is of hiking in the mountains. He doesn’t know how he ended up in town, nor how he keeps popping up in various places. He walks around aimlessly, trying to recall something as simple as his name. He’s not sure what to think of the stranger he sees repeatedly, and who keeps trying to talk to him.
While meeting a potential client at the hospital, Eric overhears a young lady looking for her brother who went missing several days ago, while hiking. Eric recognizes the picture of Dennis on the flyer and sets out to reunite him with his sister.
This short tale packs in a lot of information. Which is good.
Eric is a traveling sales man for medical supplies and happens to stop in a diner when he spots a man in distress.
Dennis, the distressed man, is unaware of whats happening but knows something is a foot.
As these two try and figure out what happened they develop a fast friendship, one that Eric see blossoming into something bigger.
This insta love connection really worked for me, I’m a sucker for a knight in shining armor, damsel is distress situation. The only thing I didn’t care for was the choppiness of the time line of healing. I guess what the author was trying to do was make the time period last beyond the smaller page count allowed. But, for me at least the HEA would have been fine with out the time jumps.
With out giving spoilers, I also loved that these two had to work at the relationship but neither one gave up. Even though it was insta because of circumstances, its not intsa perfect.
