Right Out of Nowhere
Roni Oatman belongs to a crew that conducts Search and Rescue Operations for the Forestry Service, deep in the Bitterroot Mountains of Idaho. They save lost people, but Roni is a bit lost herself. She’s a loner, who loves a woman she can’t have. Rather than dwell on what is out of reach, she buries herself in her work —or in her other business of training horses. Which, to her chagrin, isn’t going so smoothly, either.
When the SAR crew is short a member, Selena Ayala is assigned to fill the empty spot. Still on the rebound from a sudden breakup with her girlfriend, Selena has issues of her own. But she has to find a way to gain the crew’s trust, and gain it quickly. Often the missions in this rugged and unyielding wilderness are matters of life and death, and the SAR members have to be able to depend on each other.
Just when Roni and Selena are forming a tentative friendship, Selena’s ex shows up, leaving both Selena and Roni with uneasy questions. Can the two women search deep within to rescue themselves and find love right out of nowhere?
