My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Normally I would have a disclaimer across the top saying I got this from netgalley…but not so much this time. turns out Jody was only contracted with Bethany house for the first 3 books and she wanted to write more, so she self published this one. I was very excited to find out the series wasn’t over and got my copy through amazon
I really thought it was so cool that the cross found its way to Victoria, since her mom is the one who wrote the letter and her dad the one who made the cross!
I loved the story!! I’m not sure I can say that enough!!! Victoria and Tom are great together and I couldnt put the book down!! I also loved that the lighthouse that they hid at is in my state!!
Race Point, Massachusetts, 1876
Will she ever be able to stop running, even when she believes she’s finally safe?
Heiress to a vast fortune, Victoria Cole has everything she wants, including the perfect fiancé. Having left two other men at the altar, Victoria is sure that now she’s found her true love and will finally live happily ever after. As her wedding draws near, however, Victoria’s life is threatened. To keep her safe, Victoria’s father hires a bodyguard.
Tom Cushman’s number one priority is protecting his clients, which means no personal entanglements. But he’s never guarded someone as beautiful and winsome as Victoria. After a near-kidnapping, the wedding is cancelled, and Tom hides Victoria at Cape Cod’s Race Point Lighthouse until her attacker can be found. Appointed as assistant light keeper with Victoria posing as his wife, Tom believes the isolation of the lighthouse will keep her safe.
As Victoria struggles to live without familiar luxuries, her heart betrays her with growing feelings for her protector. Determined to help Tom stop fleeing from his haunted past, can the runaway bride learn to face her own fears? With the attacker closing in, will both of them ever be able to stop running and find the safety they long for?
