‘Even when she’d stopped believing, God still had answered her prayer.’
Michelle Sass Aleckson and Susan May Warren bring us back to that wonderful and charming little town of Deep Haven, MN for another great story. When Veronica Morales and her kid brother come to Deep Haven for her to take a job as a paramedic, she is wary of everyone in the town. Will they fit in here? Especially since most folks seem to think a local should have gotten the job Ronnie is filling. Hoping this will be a safe place for her ten year old brother Tiago to grow up in and have a better life, Ronnie is hoping against hope they can indeed fit in.
Very soon she butts heads in a big way with the town’s fire chief, Peter Dahlquist. Peter is related to nearly everyone in town and a big vote is coming up for the town council, on which he has a seat. Both sides of his family expect him to vote their way. He wants to please everyone and he just has enough on his plate right now, thank you very much, without a new and very bossy paramedic. Then her little brother gets caught up in some trouble in town and things began to spiral downward. Worse, Peter is beginning to fall for this woman!
Both Peter and Ronnie have some important lessons to learn as they navigate their way through these barriers in the town. Long held family traditions threaten Peter’s happiness and Ronnie feels certain she and Tiago should find a life elsewhere.
Michelle Sass Aleckson has done a bang up job with this one, the third in a six book series set in Deep Haven. Well written with a cast of great characters and set in a town I personally would love to visit and stay a while, it’s one for the keeper shelf. Well done!
My thanks to the publishers for a copy of this book. I was not expected to leave a positive review. The opinion here is entirely my own.
