Pecca works with wounded vets to help them recover and deal with whatever they are struggling with. She came to Walton to protect her son from her past, and found friends there. When a new patient comes, she finds herself falling for him. However, her past is coming for her and she is facing something she never imagined.
Natalie Walters’ books spread across several genres and hold appeal to a wide audience. Though romance is prevalent, it comes with action and suspense. Pecca must face her feelings for Colton while dealiing with the danger that threatens her and her son. Though the plot starts out seeming straightforward, there are several twists that keep you turning the page to find out what happens next.
Beyond those, there are a couple of themes that resonated with me. The first, faith and trusting God to guide your steps, is evident in the lives of the main characters. They acknowledge that our plans may fail, but God’s will not. The second is how small towns often turn friends into family. People in Walton care about and look after each other.
