When a deadly virus surfaces in the small, wealthy town of Hidden Valley, British Columbia, Dr. Kate Morrison and Sergeant Andy Wyles work together to uncover the source of the outbreak. As the two women navigate their new relationship, Kate and Andy are also forced to navigate a highly political and increasingly panicked community. Still bearing the scars of her recent abduction, Kate is driven to discover how this virus attacks her critically ill patients while Andy investigates suspicions of bioterrorism. As the death count rises, Kate struggles with a crushing sense of helplessness, the pressure to keep the residents of Hidden Valley alive, and Andy's growing concern that maybe Kate hasn't yet dealt with her troubled past.

Huh?!? But, Then Again... Cogent

Light and heavy at the same time. Fantastic author.

I really don't recall that Kate was not a lesbian until Andy "came around"... But, then again, there are still some valid talking points. Same-orientation sexual harassment; the threat of a job, because of one's orientation as a weapon to manipulate, coerce, intimidate, force, or blackmail someone. The fear is annoying as shit. Who wants to be afraid of bigotry and bad people? Even the most reasonable,least self-righteous, and less likely to be judgmental person won't know until they knew.

THIS! Yaaasss! "... It takes time to say the words and to apply them to yourself. To hear people at work talk about it, to explain to the phone company that I’m not your husband, to decide what words to take offense to, to figure out how you feel about this community that everyone will just assume you are a part of...."

Though it's not as bad as it was when any of us, above the age of 19, tried to understand ourselves, the assumption is "we're all over-sexed, aggressive, little-to-no self-control, little-to-no understanding of appropriate behavior based a common decency and respect for others..."
