She calls her brother Sam, and with help from his friend Gabriel, they get Belle to the hospital. Now she needs a place to recuperate, and she doesn't want to go to her parents'. Gabe takes her home, and Belle gets a chance to think about what she wants in life. She's no longer interested in law enforcement, but is she ready to take a chance at love? The Rebel (3) by Jan Hudson is a pleasant small-town romance with eclectic characters.
