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, this was such a satisfying end to an amazing series! This series has been so good and I was super excited to finally get to read Luke’s book! Turn to Me is the third book in Becky Wade’s Misty River Series.
Luke was a complicated character but it was so fun to read about him. He hid his emotions and feelings, which are two different things, behind walls to protect himself. I liked Luke and it was fun to get to know him. I knew of him from previous books but I did not really know him. He had been through a lot and he had a lot of guilt to work through. It was sweet to read about Luke interacting with Finley. However, Luke had to learn to let God in and give God his guilt.
Finley was fun. She was a whimsical character, and I loved her personality. She was passionate about caring for animals, and she also cared for people. Finley was super sweet and I loved her quirkiness. She had a deep faith in God but there were times when she had to learn to trust Him again. I loved the growth of her faith, Finley had to learn to wait on God’s time.
Finley and Luke were a fun couple to read about. They were both working through different things and they had experienced life in different ways. I liked the development of their relationship. But there were times when I was a bit unsure of it because Finley was a believer and Luke was not. However, otherwise this was a good book.
The side characters were fun and I loved the little story about Ben! I loved his romance and getting to read more about him, amazing! The plot was also very interesting and it was a lot of fun to read about Finley and Luke trying to solve the treasure hunt together.
Turn to Me was a lovely book and I would totally recommend it! Turn to Me is a clean contemporary romance with interesting characters, sweet dogs, and an engaging plot.
