Maggie is now a no-nonsense sheriff in her hometown. She is always in sheriff mode and seems to be always working covering for one of her deputies. She is single and lives alone, so what else does she have to do, besides some home improvements?

It seems that Maggie is caught in an embarrassing situation when she is trying on a dress and it isnít the store owner that finds her, but Ice, her high school crush. He gives her a slow perusal and he likes what he sees, but Maggie isnít happy about it. This is the first encounter they have had in years. The attraction is there simmering below the surface that is quick to rise with very little help, a touch, a look can set them off.

Ice is back in town but not for a visit. He is there to do a job and one that no one knows about except his partner and his brother if he ever gets there. That is the problem, he is stalled because his brother hasnít shown up yet and that is putting them behind schedule. He doesnít like the business that brings him back to his hometown, but there is nothing that he can do about it.

Ice is a biker that doesnít seem to have a care in the world, but there is more to Ice than everyone knows. No one knows what he does for a living and he has to keep it that way. So he lets them think he is just blowing with the wind, taking him where he needs to go.

The story is not only about Maggie and Ice and trying to figure out their lives and where they might be going as well in a relationship. There is a mystery, intrigue and mistaken identity in this small town and Maggie and Ice are involved in it. The secondary characters add the extra elements the book needed and of course caused a few problems along the way. Iím looking forward to reading more about the Patterson County Chronicles. Maggie and Ice was a great way to get the foundation started and gives us a list of characters that can easily be the next hero and heroine.
