Veteran NY cop, Rick Cooper, heads to  his family's lake house after losing a hostage negotiation, resulting in the death of a child. He brings only his dog and his saxophone for company. His agenda includes lots of fishing while he figures out an appropriate career change.

Single mom, Kristin McCarthy hears the sound of the saxophone gliding through the night air...a healing sound for her daughter. She begins a search for the person who can play so beautifully. Her high hopes fall, however, when the musician turns out to be a cop. The police fell short when she and Ashley needed them most. But still...if this cop could make a difference...if he can help Ashley...well, Kristin would do anything for her young daughter. 

An attractive widow with a damaged kid are the last people Rick needs in his life, and he tried hard to remain aloof. The ladies, however, knock down his barriers simply by being themselves. Fearful but brave, smart but silly. Before long, warm feelings grow between him and Kristin. Feeling that spark potential for a future together.

However, before Kristin can allow herself to dream, Rick must prove he's a man she and her daughter can trust. Can they count on him forever?
