What an emotional journey this story took me on! I enjoyed the thorough development of these characters and the attention to detail regarding their jobs in both law enforcement and emergency room nursing.
Tracy and Tom were captivating characters. They felt so real to me and their emotional struggles impacted them both a lot. Just when it would seem that one or both of them had a good handle on their past issues, something would occur to make them question themselves and whether a relationship together was possible. This seemed very realistic to me, as it is so easy to try to take too much into our own control and forget to hand it all over to God. But, Tracy and Tom had quite the journey in Call to Love, and they both learned how to really allow God to be in control of their lives. This was a very interesting and enjoyable novel.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Tracy Cassidy, a fiercely independent ER nurse, must choose between her dream job or staying in her hometown to help support her mother’s faltering ministry. Even if it means risking her heart in love with the kind of man she said she’d never marry. Why sign up to be Laurelton’s next cop widow?
Tom DeLaney, a hyper-vigilant cop and new hire from Texas, is wearied by years of failed rescue attempts to save his marriage to his ex. A free man, he moves to the foothills of North Carolina. Thing is, he hadn’t expected to fall for Tracy, his supervisor’s sister. But when his adolescent son is diagnosed with a chronic illness, he faces the risk of loving another woman with keep-out issues.
Fears related to the death of Tracy’s cop father and Tom’s inability to forgive the past threaten to sabotage any chance at love.
To trust again means surrender. Will they risk their hearts and answer the call?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mary A. Felkins is an inspirational romance author, administrator for Seriously Write writer’s blog, and contributor to an on-line Bible study magazine. In 2015, she was awarded a bronze medal winner for her scene submission to My Book Therapy’s Frazier contest. Call to Love is her debut, inspirational romance novel.
She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and My Book Therapy.
Raised in Houston, Texas (and forever a Lone Star girl), Mary and her husband Bruce moved to the foothills of North Carolina in 1997. They are blessed to parent four young adult children. She can be lured from her writer’s cave if presented with a large, unopened bag of Peanut M&Ms or to watch an episode of Fixer Upper. A surprise appearance by her teen idol, Donny Osmond, would also do the trick, although she’d likely pass out.
If, upon introduction, she likes your first or last name, expect to see it show up in one of her novels.
