Today I am reviewing Safely Home by Ruth Logan Herne.
Here is the brief synopsis:
Detective Crescent Dietrich vowed never to return to Watkins Ridge.
A bullet and her grandmother’s cancer diagnosis changed that. Now she’s back, touching a past she spurned long ago.
Alex Westmore appreciates God’s humor, but when hard-nosed Cress Dietrich is plunked into the middle of the family farm controversy—and his part in the sale of a centennial farm—he’s not laughing.
He promised her grandmother secrecy, and Alex always keeps his word. But this time, his pledge might break Cress’s heart.
He wants her trust and love. He knows you can’t have one without the other.
But can Cress escape the shadows of the past in time to embrace the simple light of her future? With God’s grace, she can… in Watkins Ridge.
** This story is not available on paperback.
Cress Dietrich came home, because her Gram needed her . . . thankfully, it also gave her time to recover from an on-the-job injury — involving a bullet! The last person she needed in her life, or so she thought, was Alex Westmore.
Wow! Ruth Logan Herne never fails to deliver a great story! Safely Home is a great story of family, faith, and forgievness!
Cress and Alex are intriguing characters that provide more than enough adventure for her readers. Gram and He wasn’t looking for a prickly detective with the wrong idea to complicate his life. Both found more than they were expecting.
I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll let you read it for yourself . . .
