Agent Kevin Herriman wants praise from his boss, who's also his best friend. He's working his first case as lead, but things aren't going well. Not only does he consider it far from exciting, it also comes with a strong-willed female civilian who might be mixed up in exotic animal smuggling.
Carlie Noblett lives determined. Dealt a sight impairment at a young age, she's fought for what she's wanted. Now a substitute teacher who works at a pet shop part time, what she wants is romance and a little adventure. Except a run-in with the swaggering agent isn’t what she had in mind.
When the suspected smuggling operation morphs into something more evil, Kevin's got his hands full trying to solve a case that's bigger than he imagined. Just like the bright flit of a goldfinch wing, so is love when it makes an appearance and worth the high cost—if it survives.
