HER HOLIDAY HERO
The Soldier's Gift
The holidays are right around the corner, but Captain Jake Tanner is struggling to find Christmas cheer. Having survived a devastating attack overseas, he has emotional scars that run deep. When Jake meets beautiful widow Emma Langford, his heart is unprepared for the feelings she inspires.
Training service dogs has taught Emma to recognize those in need. She wants to show Jake that a four-legged companion is the best therapy, but she's afraid that the closer she gets, the more her own wounds are revealed.
Together, Jake and Emma will discover it takes a different kind of bravery to open themselves to love—and to healing.
Caring Canines: Loving and loyal, these dogs mend hearts.
I just love this series!!!! And there are so many different kinds of therapy dogs to highlight that I'm hoping it's around for quite a while.
Daley knows how to tell a compelling, vibrant story. Her characters are real, and unfortunately, their dilemmas are all too heartbreakingly believable as well. I love her realistic portrayals of life -- both the failures and the successes and there are plenty of both in this thought-provoking read.
I don't want to give the plot away so I won't reveal too much though I will say I was really captivated at the way the author meshed Jake's struggles with Emma and her son's. There were parallels there that I wouldn't have seen before reading this book.
Her Holiday Hero is a romance with substance and an important message that is all too relevant in our society today (and brilliantly dealt with, I might add). A definite must read.
