Some would call Andi Lockley a little paranoid, but she just calls herself prepared. After getting way too close to a deadly man as a teen, she's spent the last few years channeling her anxiety into writing horror novels and producing a true crime podcast. Things are looking up...if only her grumpy new neighbour would stop stomping around at all hours of the night.

Former firefighter Hill Dawson can't sleep. After losing part of his leg in a rescue gone wrong, he's now stuck at home. He needs to figure out what he's supposed to do with his life, and he doesn't need to be distracted by the chatty-yet-anxious redhead next door. But when someone breaks into Andi's place, Hill can't stop himself from intervening. Soon, a tentative bond forms between the unlikely pair. But what starts out as a neighbourly exchange quickly turns into more...if Andi can learn to put aside her fear and trust in herself and others again.
