THE PRODIGAL'S REDEMPTION by Mary Eason
Kyle and Chloe Stickland are heading for California when they find themselves on a mountain road in a bad snowstorm. That's when the unthinkable happens. Their car goes over the edge of the mountain. Devon McCallister is returning home when his headlights spot smoke and then he sees the tire tracks go over the edge of the mountain. When he gets to the vehicle he understands how bad it really is. He checks Kyle first and it really doesn't look like he's going to make it but Devon tries to be encouraging. Kyle pleads with Devon to take care of his wife for him. Makes Devon promise and Devon accepts as Kyle breathes his last. When they take Chloe to the hospital she begs Devon to go with her and not to leave her alone. As he tries to fulfill his promise to Kyle he begins to have feelings for Chloe. Feelings he's unfamiliar with. Chloe is having a hard time letting go of Kyle but she does have feelings for Devon. Devon knows he's found the right woman but will Chloe accept a second chance at love?
I really enjoyed this story. It kept me turning to pages to find out the outcome, although in all honesty, I guessed how it would end. But all the in-between stuff was great. Chloe was a good lead although she was rather stubborn. To the point I wanted to shake some sense into her. Devon was a gem. He so quietly cared for Chloe and really tried to be what she needed at a personal cost to him. There were several spots where I found myself wiping tears from my eyes. I know it's a good story when that happens.
