Kacey Fairing flies helicopters in rescue missions for the military, but her plane was shot down in Afghanistan and now she's home for the Summer hoping to leave the nightmares of war behind. She get's a job flying a rescue helicopter for PEAK Rescue pilot Chet King who has been injured and needs an interim replacement. But what she doesn't know is that her old flame, Country Music start Ben King is home to care for his father.
Ben King is a Country singer who got his start singing the songs that he wrote for Kacey back in highschool, going on to become part of a duo. But now his partner, Hollie has gone solo, and he has to reconfigure his career.
Will Kacey and Ben find a new beginning?
I liked the interaction between Kacey and Ben, they both acknowledge that they made mistakes in that past and want to move forward. Ben is surprised to learn about Kacey's 13 year old daughter, Audrey, who is a big fan of his previous Country duo. He wants to get to know Audrey, and wants to makes sure that letting her know him as her father is the right thing. Kacey and Ben make a good team, and they work hard to put together the clues to find the missing niece of Ian Shaw, Esme, who disappeared 3 years ago.
I loved Chet, he is a man of faith, who gives good advice and isn't above a little matchmaking. He is an impatient patient, but his heart is right on track.
This is a riveting, heartwarming read, with colorful characters, and lively dialog. I loved the drama and suspense, entwined with the strong vein of redemption that runs through the story. A fantastic read from beginning to end and I can't wait to read the next in the series.
