Turn to Me
by Becky Wade
His promise will cost him far more than he imagined.
Guilt has defined Luke Dempsey’s life, but it was self-destructiveness that landed him in prison. When his friend and fellow inmate lay dying shortly before Luke’s release, the older man revealed he left a string of clues for his daughter, Finley, that will lead her to the treasure he’s hidden. Worried that she won’t be the only one pursuing the treasure, he gains Luke’s promise to protect her until the end of her search.
Spunky and idealistic, Finley Sutherland is the owner of an animal rescue center and a defender of lost causes. She accepts Luke’s help on the treasure hunt while secretly planning to help him in return–by coaxing him to embrace the forgiveness he’s long denied himself.
As they draw closer to the final clue, their reasons for resisting each other begin to crumble, and Luke realizes his promise will push him to the limit in more ways than one. He’ll do his best to shield Finley from unseen threats, but who’s going to shield him from losing his heart?
Oh my. This book.
Best story I’ve read in awhile.
I could NOT put it down, could not stop reading.
But it’s so bittersweet to reach the end of such a magnificent series….I don’t want to leave Misty river and the miracle Five.
This is Finley’s story. And Luke’s. One of my very favorite things about Becky Wade’s novels is her characters. She has such a unique way of making real people, and they just come alive for me. This one is especially exceptional.
Finley is on a treasure hunt. A sort of remembrance for her, left in place for her, to make her birthday special. What makes it a real treasure is that her dad did it for her before he died.
But he made Luke promise he’d go and help Finley on this treasure hunt. Which means…there is a good probability of actual treasure. And that her life might be in danger.
I loved reading this story, and seeing Luke and Finley get to know each other.
The treasure hunt thing, well, totally my kind of story!
This is just such a good book, and I recommend that you read it!
