Wade creates charming characters, with great development, who make the reader really invested in the outcome of this heartwarming tale that proves the power of relying on faith.  

Social worker Kate Donovan took a three month leave of absence so that she could help her grandmother renovate the historic houses in which she was raised. Matt Jarreau, a former professional hockey player, is helping. Kate is surprised by his guarded, tough exterior. Kate’s grandmother hopes to play matchmaker, but it seems Matt has given up on love. As he allows himself to open up to Kate, he realizes he must deal with the ghosts of his past in order to find closure and the blessings of the future.  (BETHANY HOUSE, May 2012, 226 pp, $13.99)
