About Honor Redeemed
During rush hour one cold November night, a jumbo jet crashes on a busy highway…most of it, anyway. Honor Mackenzie and Rowdy, her trusty Search and Rescue dog, join the SAR team to search for the tail section, reported by witnesses to have landed in the dark and rainy woods along Baltimore’s Patapsco River.
Pulitzer prize-winning columnist Matt Phillips, forced to leave his SAR work behind to ensure his motherless twins would always have a dad, leaves the boys with a neighbor and heads to the woods, intent on getting another breaking story. It takes weeks to figure out why she’d given him such an icy reception: Another headline-hungry reporter–whose less-than-accurate story–ended her career with the fire department. In his effort to prove that not every reporter sacrifices “truth” for “story,” Matt finds himself attracted to the beautiful sad-eyed redhead.
As weeks pass, they discover that SAR missions aren’t the only things they have in common. Haunting attachments to 9/11 and the loss of a spouse have kept them lonely and alone…until they find comfort with one another. Much as he and his boys have come to care for her, Matt isn’t convinced that Honor will ever fully commit to him or the twins…especially after she takes a job in New York without even discussing it with him.
During his annual ski weekend with the boys, the heartbroken Matt gets word that Honor has gone missing during a search for a lost girl. He leads the search team, desperate to find her before a blizzard moves in. But even if he does, will they find their way back to one another…
…or back to living life alone?
I have read several books by Loree Lough and have really enjoyed them. This book is the second book in The First Responders Series but you don't have to read the first one to enjoy this one.
Honor has gotten a reputation as a woman who has done certain things to get to the top of her profession in Search and Rescue. She didn't do what she is accused of but has gotten tired of trying to defend herself.
Matt is a reporter that has some things in his background too. He has twin boys that he has been raising on his own since they were born.
They meet at a rescue sight where she is working on the rescue team and he is trying to get the story.
The story is highly readable and kept me turning the pages to see how it was going to turn out.
I received a review copy of this book but I will be going out to buy the first one in this series.
