Happy Tuesday! I’ve got another book review for you. This time Becky Wade’s Turn to Me, the last book in her Misty River romance series. You can read my thoughts on book one and two respectively.
About the Book
His promise will cost him far more than he imagined.
Guilt has defined Luke Dempsey’s life, but it was self-destructiveness that landed him in prison. When his friend and fellow inmate lay dying shortly before Luke’s release, the older man revealed he left a string of clues for his daughter, Finley, that will lead her to the treasure he’s hidden. Worried that she won’t be the only one pursuing the treasure, he gains Luke’s promise to protect her until the end of her search.
Spunky and idealistic, Finley Sutherland is the owner of an animal rescue center and a defender of lost causes. She accepts Luke’s help on the treasure hunt while secretly planning to help him in return–by coaxing him to embrace the forgiveness he’s long denied himself.
As they draw closer to the final clue, their reasons for resisting each other begin to crumble, and Luke realizes his promise will push him to the limit in more ways than one. He’ll do his best to shield Finley from unseen threats, but who’s going to shield him from losing his heart?
Turn to Me is the conclusion of the Misty River romance with the much awaited story of Luke. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see a thread with Ben in it as well.
I loved the idea of the treasure hunt and the deeper truth that unveiled in the process. I also loved Luke and how he dealt with people, because it was totally understandable. Seeing him slowly change and rely on God once more was a blessing to see.
I also really enjoyed Ben and Akira’s thread and wished it was a little more in depth, but a writer can only spend so much time between the pages before they’re forced to write The End.
Fans of Becky Wade will adore this conclusion and route for happily ever afters in the process.

About the Author
During her childhood in California, Becky frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She’s been a fan of all things romantic ever since.
Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky’s passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She’s delighted to be penning emotional Christian contemporary romances laced with mystery. She’s the Christy and Carol award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, the Porter Family series, the Bradford Sisters series, and the Misty River Romance series.
These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, power-walking her neighborhood, carting her kids around town, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
