Turn to Me by Becky Wade: Book Review

  **I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

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?

Turn to Me is the third book in A Misty River Romance series. While I think this would be okay as a standalone, I do think it'd be best to read the series to truly have the full understanding of who the Miracle Five are. 

This one focuses primarily on one of the five: Luke. After getting out of prison, he finds himself making an unlikely alliance with the animal loving Finley to help her with a scavenger hunt left to her by her father. This added a good amount of mystery, which I couldn't help but enjoy. One thing that I have come to love about Becky Wade's books is that she can write chemistry so believably, and I certainly felt this to be the case here. And while I did enjoy the chemistry between Luke and Finley of course, I must say that the occasional glimpses we got at Ben and Akira might have been even more enjoyable... I really enjoyed their banter back and forth and found that I would have loved to see even more than that. Still, this was a great romance with a good message of redemption as well. I really liked seeing Luke's growth throughout the story. 

Overall, this was a very good read and one that fans of Christian fiction are sure to check out for themselves.
