Title: "Storm Front"

Author: Susan May Warren

Synopsis: A tornado has destroyed a small Minnesota town, and among the missing are a group of students and PEAK Rescue team leader Chet King. Ty Remington will stop at nothing to rescue his mentor, not even when the girl he loved — and lost — walks back into his life. A blogger for Vortex Storm Chasers, Brette Arnold didn't expect her adventures to land her in the same place as Ty, the guy who she ran from over a year ago. She had her reasons and believes that falling for him again would only lead to her heartache. But Ty isn't the kind of man to give up — not on the missing students or her.
