Welcome to my stop on the True Horizon blog tour organised by Lola’s Blog Tours. Today I have my review of this wonderful book for you which I hope you enjoy. If you missed my review of the first book in this series check it out below.
Book One: Home Field
Back home on her family’s Texas Longhorn ranch, Grace Murray is busy preparing for her wedding. After a scruffy tattooed drifter saves her life, she takes on the mission of helping her savior, Heath Carter, find peace. The steady friendship and unconditional acceptance she receives from him encourages her to trade an old dream for a new one—a dream true to her heart. When she calls off her wedding, Grace is finally set free to fully love Heath.
After a decade of military service, Special Forces veteran Heath Carter is living with war’s tragic consequences. Struggling with PTSD, anger, and guilt, he travels through Texas, solitarily moving from job to job. Working with Grace on the ranch, Heath’s guilt over his past actions make him feel unworthy of her love. As their paths lead them in different directions, Heath needs to discover the courage to fight his toughest battle yet—the one inside himself.
We briefly meet Heath in the first book of this series Home Field, he was best friend’s with Julie’s Husband before he died and has been suffering ever since. Now that he is no longer in the military he just travels around on his bike taking odd jobs and sleeping where he can. His guilt over being unable to save his best friend eating at him every day.
When he meets Grace in the process of saving her life a bond is formed between the pair and we see how her open heart becomes the healing drug Heath has needed. The only problem is that Grace is engaged to somebody else.
Heath is a wonderful character as we see him tackle his PTSD, his loneliness, falling in love and how honourable he is through it all. It’s a tough old journey for this man who deserves to find happiness and love and is at risk of having none of it.
Grace is very much stuck in a rut of doing what people expect. She’s engaged to the man she spent all of her teenage years pining after almost forgetting that as adults people change and she makes compromises to make others happy forgoing her own needs.
I loved watching these two discover each other, discover how their lives could be and how to be stronger individually and make changes in their individual lives so that they could try and come together. This is another winning book full of heart from Laurie Winter.
A huge thank you to Laurie Winter and Lola’s Blog Tours for the review copy so that I could provide my honest review of this novel.
