Jennifer Foster's life isn't what she thought it'd be. She's given up a
lot to help her father with her troubled mother. She pours herself into
her customers at Sal's Diner. She loves visiting the folks who come
there and they love her friendly and affectionate smile she serves up to
each and every one. Ryan Douglass, along with his partner, stop into
Sal's for their lunch break. The two police officers get seated in
Jennifer's section. Ryan and Jennifer share an immediate connection. (I
loved their initial meeting!) When a robbery occurs, Ryan takes control
of the situation, then takes care of Jennifer. He feels drawn to care
for her and protect her. But Jennifer knows they have no future with all
the problems in her life. And once Ryan knows about her family he'll
run the other way. Ryan has his own family issues. Ones he learned to
deal with by God's grace. Will Jennifer learn from Ryan that all things
are possible with God, or will her pride get in the way?
This was truly an upbeat story with an emotional punch. I loved visiting Sal's
Place! What a warm and friendly place to be. I could smell Sal's
wonderful cooking and hear the hustle bustle of the restaurant. Although
Ryan is a policeman and sworn to uphold the law, he will definitely
'steal' your heart! What a great guy. Jennifer was such a sweet lady and
had such tender heart. Each of their situations is emotionally
challenging but you see how different each one deals with those
challenges. Does it make a difference to rely on the Lord for strength
and help? Can you find peace in difficult times? You'll find out when
you read Search & Rescue. If you like loveable characters, then I
recommend you drop by Sal's Place for a heapin' helpin' of love and
romance served up with a side of faith and topped with bits of humor
and sass! You'll be glad you did.
This is the first book in the Sal's Place series and is due out February 8.

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
