Healed by Love by Melissa Foster Book Review and Giveaway

Getting to know the first character in a new series is always really fun with Melissa Foster's books.  You get to know them but you also get a piece of the whole family.  I loved that about Healed by Love.  In this book we not only met Nate and Jewel, but their parents and siblings as well.  

Nate Braden is part of the Peaceful Harbor Braden clan.  He is cousin to the Bradens in Colorado, so you know that this boy has respect for all things.  Nate is ex-military and is dealing with his own demons when he returns home from active duty in Afghanistan.   He didn't return home to just anyone though.  He came home to family and most importantly the love of his life, Jewel Fisher.  

Jewel Fisher made me want to reach in the book and shake her.  Seriously.  Who goes hiking, gets injured and just lays out in the woods for hours waiting for what?  A Bear?  Her injury to be magically fixed?  Her knight in shining armor?  Well, lucky for her Nate Braden showed up and he couldn't have been any more knightly!  

As the story progresses the couple deals with some really heavy things.  There is death, love, responsibility, and a little fun on the water all wrapped up in a neat little package that is Healed by Love.  I really enjoyed this story.  Definitely pick it up and be Healed by Love! 

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.
