On a steamy spring morning, Dusty Parker part-time pastor, part-time search-and-rescue team member, and full-time administrator of a school for troubled boys joins the search for a missing teenage girl. He partners with volunteer and inner-city school teacher Grace Sinclair, and what they find bonds them in ways neither could have expected. As they begin to build their lives together, a visitor from the past causes Dusty and Grace to further open their hearts and home. But a threat is looming on their seemingly perfect lives and in one terrifying night, everything changes.
Overall, I liked this book. Dusty meets Grace on a SAR job. She is the teacher of the missing girl they are looking for. The two of them have a connection but that is all. Now, they have to come together again to fight a bigger battle and see if their 'love at first sight' is real. The problem is the bigger the battle, the bigger the danger and anything can happen. Ok, I'll get the 'grouchy' part out of the way and say I didn't like the ending one bit! That being said, I loved how the author puts so much life into her characters. They were all real, the story had several twists and turns that were completely unexpected, there was suspense, danger...and not the least of all, romance! Dusty and Grace both have pasts but the fact they are doing something so wonderful with their lives now is really an inspiration.
Really, I want to rate this book low because I didn't like the ending, BUT the rest of the book was really good and the ending wasn't BAD, I just didn't want it! So this is a 4/5 but not a keeper for me.
