Healed By Love Tour and Giveaway

Book #1 The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor, Book #13 The Bradens series, Love in Bloom #25

Meet the Bradens of Peaceful Harbor and fall in love with Nate Braden & Jewel Fisher in Healed by Love.

Nate Braden has loved his best friend’s younger sister Jewel for as long as he can remember, but between their age difference and his respect for Rick, he’s always kept his feelings at bay. Now he’s back in Peaceful Harbor, and Jewel is no longer sixteen years old—but there’s an even bigger obstacle standing in his way. Nate and Rick joined the military together eight years earlier. Nate came home a hero, but Rick didn’t make it out alive.

THE BRADENS AT PEACEFUL HARBOR are one of the newest additions to the Braden series and the LOVE IN BLOOM family.

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF Healed by Love***

After their father dies, Rick and Jewel Foster take over responsibility for their mother and younger siblings. Rick later decides to join the service, along with his best friend Nate Braden, leaving Jewel to bear the family responsibility on her own. After Rick is killed by a sniper, Nate feels that it was his fault. Jewel and Nate have secretly crushed on one another forever it seems, but now guilt is a new obstacle between them and one that seems impossible to overcome.

This was such a tearjerker. I would have to put the book down, finish crying, start reading again, and then start crying again. Jewel and Nate’s story was about inner turmoil and guilt, but I think, above all else it was about growth. It took getting past the raw emotions for them to move ahead. I loved how they were finally able to voice their concerns to each other without knowing where it would lead them.
