Publisher's Book Description

“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?”

My Review

“Turn to Me, by Becky Wade, the third book in A Misty River Romance series, is a beautiful end to a wonderful trilogy. Like the other books in this series, this novel features a story that is heartfelt and meaningful. It is also thoughtful, clever, and redemptive. With unforgettable characters, an intriguing mystery, moments of sweet romance, and a small town setting, this book is truly compelling and a genuine pleasure to read.  

Ms. Wade’s writing talent always seems utterly effortless. In Turn to Me, she has crafted a novel that is both touching and engaging. With sensitivity and skill, this book explores important themes such as guilt, loss, fear, and redemption. As the characters honor their promises and open their hearts to new relationships, they gradually find hope and healing are now within their reach. The story becomes especially powerful when the characters gain strength from one another and recognize the value of honesty, trust, vulnerability, and forgiveness. Faith is strengthened and hope blooms as damaged hearts become less fragile when nurtured by love and grace. 

Becky Wade’s novels are consistently well-written and entertaining. Turn to Me is another worthy book that is thought-provoking and emotionally-stirring. Page after page, it offers a captivating plot, endearing characters, and relevant themes. I recommend this novel wholeheartedly.
