Timothy Dillion is a Deputy U.S. Marshal traveling with Marshal Nathan
Ryder (also know as the Preacher) from Redemption, New Mexico to
Cottonwood, Iowa, to visit his aunt Aggie and find peace from a
situation in Redemption. When they get Cottonwood, they're surprised to
find that Diamond Dale has struck again and he's kidnapped Nell Shaw.
Nell Shaw is a nurse who has no appreciation for men since fleeing her
father's advances and going to live with Aggie Cuttler. She soon
discovers her father has returned and is terminally ill, expecting her
to care for him. Now, because of Diamond Dale, she has Tim following her
around everywhere to protect her and she hates it, though she is drawn
to him and thinks he's handsome. For Tim, protecting Nell is
particularly hard because he's already lost two women he's loved at the
hands of Diamond Dale. He doesn't want Nell to be the third. Can two
hurting souls overcome the past to perhaps find a future together? Will
Diamond Dale find his mark? What does Aggie think about Nell's father
returning? Will Nathan find the peace he's looking for?
Love is a really great story! One that truly comes to life in your mind
as you're reading; like watching a movie in your head. It was such a
great mix of romance, suspense and interaction with folks you just come
to love. I got to know a little about Nugget Nate Ryder (Nathan's
grandfather) in Leah's Peace. A character I loved! So it was fun to get
to know his grandson. Redeeming Love brings together two different
series by two different authors. The Redemption Series by George Mc Vey
and The Cottonwood Series by Sophie Dawson. I haven't read either of
these series but I can promise you I will be soon. Both are excellent
writers who know how to bring a story to life, with living, breathing
characters, and when you get to the end, makes you crave more. I
appreciated the way faith was so naturally a part of this story not just
something tacked on as an after-thought. That doesn't mean they didn't
have struggles and failures, because they did, but faith was part of who
they were. I am looking forward to reading both series soon and
catching up with both Redemption and Cottonwood. You'll find at the end
of this book that another Redemption story will be coming soon. If you
enjoy a good old-fashioned western with folks you love (and some you
don't), then I highly recommend a trip to Cottonwood to find out what
Redeeming Love is all about. It's enjoyable as a stand alone but I for
one want to read the other books!

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.
