The Rescue {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 




Sometimes the path to freedom is found in an unexpected future.

Upon the death of her mother, Rosalind Standford’s life shatters, the pieces scattering to the wind when she is forced into a betrothal to a cunning banker. But when a telegram arrives announcing the man who captured her heart is on a train to Boston, Rosalind must hide her true feelings before the thin cord of her existence unravels the deadly secrets she keeps.

Cowboy Trent Easton returns to his roots in Boston society to find his childhood friend, the love of his heart. Instead he finds a broken woman engaged to a man close to her father’s age. Though she once rejected him, when Trent learns she’s in danger, he determines to do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even taking her to the altar in the black of night. But will his name and the remote wilds of his Texas ranch be enough to protect her? Or will freedom cost them their lives?

Oh, what a way to kick off the new All Roads Lead To Texas series. After finishing The Rescue, I cannot wait to read even more!

To be honest, this wasn't one that captured me from the start. In fact, it took me a bit to get into it at the beginning. There was a time jump between the first few chapters and I think for me that threw me off and I had to get that timeline straight before I could really appreciate the story more. I see why it was written in this way--- we needed to have that history between Trent and Rosalind for the story to work... again, it just gave me pause for a bit. Once I got over that initial adjustment, I couldn't put this book down. It was one that I had to force myself to put away as my eyes failed to stay open. The suspense wasn't always high packed action, but it was always there even in the calm moments, making me as a reader wonder what was going to happen next. There were twists and turns throughout that held me in the story.

This story deals with some hard topics like abuse and betrayal, loss and mourning. Still, more than anything it is a story of God's love and grace, and a story of forgiveness. I love how the author beautifully weaved the scripture and messages of faith into this touching romance. I really found that I loved getting to know these characters... while I was anxious to see how the story ended, I also found myself wanting to continue to watch their story. I hope that the future books in the series will allow those glimpses too.

If you are a fan of historical romance, this is one that I would certainly recommend. It was a great read, and I cannot wait for the next in the series!
