Reid's Redemption by Sara Celi
Published May 25th 2019 by Lowe Interactive
A broken man. A town on its last leg. A love that could warm the coldest of hearts...
For too many years, Reid Powell carried the sins of his family. His father's failed business. His younger brother's drug addiction. An accident that permanently altered the lives of so many in his hometown. Now, their community was crumbling from economic collapse and grief. Hope had faded with the night.
Reid’s heart was as hard as the anger that ran through his town. He had accepted his fate, and given himself over to relentless vilification. There was no other choice.
But the day he found Tarryn Long on his property, light began to trickle into his darkened soul. She was different. Kind. Forgiving. Tempting. To let her in could change his life forever, but could he take that risk?
Could he ever embrace redemption?
Tarryn, while there to help her father, sees that the town is in need of help. She does not know Reid but as she gets to know him and hears the stories, she realizes that he could be just what the town needs and quite possibly what she needs also. I love her gentle strength, her suggestive powers, and her love of family.
Reid’s Redemption was a fun story to read. The storyline was easy to follow and the characters easy to like. I recommend picking up your own copy.
