A Man of Honor by Loree Lough

From the Back Cover:

On a steamy spring morning, Dusty Parker, part-time pastor, part-time search-and-rescue team member, and full-time administrator of a school for troubled boys-joins the search for a missing teenage girl. He partners with volunteer and inner-city school teacher Grace Sinclair, and what they find bonds them in ways neither could have expected.
As they begin to build their lives together, a visitor from the past causes Dusty and Grace to further open their hearts and home. But a threat is looming on their seemingly perfect lives and in one terrifying night, everything changes.

My Thoughts:

This is the third novel in Loree Lough's "First Responders" series, and I've enjoyed every single one.  Her characters are lively and her stories are fresh and inviting.

Dusty is a man with issues.  Grace has her own baggage.  Together they find common ground to build on: helping others.  His boys, the 'Last Chance' boys, are troubled teens needing a higher purpose, and Dusty works to give them that, as well as shelter and food.

When Grace ends up needing help with her property and her home, she turns to Dusty and his boys.  A temporary solution could be a more permanent one...if the past doesn't interfere with the future.

Both Dusty and Grace need to learn to lean on God more than themselves (don't we all), and circumstances set up to teach them just that lesson.

Be warned: Loree doesn't believe in conventional happy endings!  Just when you think you know where the story is headed, she's liable to throw you a curve...and she always leaves you wanting more.

I received my advance copy of "A Man of Honor" from Dorothy at Pump Up Your Book Promotions in exchange for my honest review.  All three novels in this series are highly recommended.

Happy Reading!
