About the Book:

Stephen O'Malley is a paramedic who has been rescuing people all his life. But he's running now -- from the burden of his profession, from the grief of losing his sister, and from a God he doesn't want to trust.

He's run into a mystery. Stolen jewels are turning up in unexpected places, and his friend Meghan is caught in the middle of the trouble. Stephen's about to run into a night he will never forget: a kidnapping, a tornado, and a race to rescue the woman he loves ...

My Rating & Thoughts:    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Stephen is the only O’Malley who doesn’t believe. After a family tragedy he is feeling unsettled and takes a leave of absence from work to travel. Story begins in present day and then jumps back to 5 years ago and learn about his friend Megan’s accident and how she became blind. It then reverts to present day. Stephen visits Megan’s town and begins to feel at peace in this community, he ends up buying a farm and starts establishing roots. He is close enough to family without feeling the overwhelming stress of the big city. Even after her blindness Megan has established independence and kept her faith in God. She helps Stephen understand that God is a friend with no strings attached. I liked that she was direct with Stephen and told him that no relationship could happen with him if he didn’t believe in God. And Stephen accepts that and doesn’t try to fake it for Megan, but rather search for answers and make a decision for himself even if that means he has to walk away. The case of the missing jewels was interesting and I was impressed with the way Megan was able to tackle the job she needed to do. There was a bit of time where I was really concerned about Megan, I couldn’t imagine going through that trauma, never mind enduring it blind.  I loved how involved Kate and Dave were in the story, it felt like the series had come full circle with characters from book one having such prominent roles in the last book of the series. The end wrapped up the stories of each sibling nicely.
