Fire captain Mitch Andrews can't forget the three young children he saved from a fire. A suspicious fire that left them orphans. In the care of foster mother Jill Kirkpatrick, he knows the little ones will be loved. Even if the sweet, strong widow won't let Mitch close to her.
But suddenly the kids—and Jill—are in terrible danger…and one of the children is missing. Mitch and Jill will risk everything to find the stolen girl and keep a makeshift family of five together forever.
This was actually the first book I read of Ms. Hansen’s, judging from this book, this won’t be the last.:)…
The romance is subtle, but it’s there, a clean romance, with lot of action, mysteries and suspense in it.
The book is truly inspired by God. In every lines, I felt God constantly knocking at their hearts. It’s a book of faith, and that anyone like Mitch should not let himself stray away from God. It’s not like we deserve the trials were facing, it’s a way of life to make it stronger.
A lot of insights are written in the book, how the characters fought for justice and peace, meanwhile searching themselves of their faiths.
I really liked the characters, especially the children and Tim, who was trying to be a big brother and protect everyone, it’s quite funny at the time when Mitch didn’t believe Tim and actually accuse him of someone just trying to vie for their attention. The kids are lovable. Jill and Mitch on the other hand, made me frustrated, I get it their good friends, but obviously they have a thing for each other, they’re just both afraid of doing something that would ruin it up…
Although I already guess who the villains are, there was a point when I somehow can’t believe the turn of events, especially the end part, so sudden… it left me asking, so that’s it?....
But when it comes to Jill, Mitch and the children’s fate.,,I totally agree with the author..:)
If you want to read something with lots of drama, farm, dogs, kids, a cute romance, then what are you waiting for.. this book might be the one for you!
