Finding Home



One stubborn boy is getting the better of Scott Walsh. The very busy project manager keeps finding the kid on his dangerous construction site. One warning to the boy's parents should take care of it. But when Scott meets widowed mother Cindy Peterson, she's already carrying so much on her narrow shoulders. He wants to help Cindy and her boy, but didn't he vow never to get involved with a family again? Scott can't bear to break a child's heart. But this time it's his own heart asking for a chance.

My Review:

Hannon has such a gift for storytelling. Measured words, taut pacing, endearing characters and plot twists abounding! I've enjoyed everything I've read by this gifted author, including this heart-tugging Love Inspired story.

 Our first glimpse of Scott Walsh is less then favourable. A crusty man -- gruff, stand-offish or so Hannon would lead us to believe. But she allows us into his mind and peels back layer after layer as the story progresses until we recognize Scott for the hero that he is. 

Both Scott and Cindy made snap decisions about each other based on their first unfortunate encounter.  I love how Hannon slowly changes their minds as their romance ignites. A pure pleasure to read. I know I can never go wrong with a book by Irene Hannon!
