Her Hometown Hero is the third book in the Caring Canines series, however, it can be read as a stand alone book. I really enjoyed this sweet story that revolves around two people who were once in love.
Nate is pretty much the ultimate leading man. He is strong, caring, and sensitive to Kit’s needs. He is amazingly patient, but is also trying to guard his heart. Kit left him once before, choosing a career in ballet over a life with him.
Kit is a woman trying to find her way. She doesn’t know what she is going to do with her life now that the career in ballet she worked so hard for is no longer an option. She does not even know what she is capable of or if she wants to remain in the hometown she has returned to. She once loved Nate. Can she allow herself to love him again?
Great characters and a wonderful plot make for a very enjoyable story. Nate and Kit must really question what God has planned for them and what He wants for their lives. They must each let go of their fears and learn to trust in Him. Great story! (5 stars)
My thanks to the author, who provided a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
