Rich details and touching scenes combine to create Lough’s latest tribute to first responders, in this instance, search and rescue workers.
While serving as a search-and-rescue worker at a plane crash, Honor Mackenzie meets reporter Matt Phillips. Since a reporter ruined her reputation and cost her her job as a firefighter, Honor isn’t interested in a relationship with Matt. After learning about Honor’s past, Matt feels compelled to clear her name, though she asks him not to get involved. Fighting feelings for Matt, Honor takes a job in New York City. However, Matt is not ready to give up on Honor and when his job sends him to New York, he plans to admit his feelings to her. Can they have a future together? (ABINGDON, Feb., 304 pp., $14.99)
